What grades must I maintain as an undergraduate student to graduate?

A student must achieve a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.00 to graduate. A minimum cumulative GPA of 1.70 as a freshman, 1.90 as a sophomore, 2.00 as a junior or senior must be achieved to maintain satisfactory academic status at the college.

Probation I. The first time a student’s cumulative GPA falls below the minimum required, the student shall be placed on Probation I for his/her next regular semester. The student will receive an e-mail from the Office of the Registrar outlining available academic support services and requiring the student to meet with an advisor from the Advising and Enrichment Center.

Probation II. When a student is on Probation I and his/her cumulative GPA falls below the minimum required for two sequential (not necessarily contiguous) regular semesters, the student shall be placed on Probation II for his/her next regular semester. The student will receive an e-mail from the Office of the Registrar outlining available academic support services and requiring the student to meet with an advisor from the Advising and Enrichment Center. A student on Probation II status cannot register for more than 12 credits until he/she is removed from probation.

Dismissal. When a student’s cumulative GPA falls below the minimum required for three sequential (not necessarily contiguous) regular semesters, the student will be dismissed from the college. Dismissal is defined as ineligible to pursue credit-bearing courses at NYIT for a period of two academic years or until a minimum GPA of 2.0 is earned for the most recent 24 credits taken at another accredited United States institution of higher education. The decision of dismissal shall be automatically appealed to the Committee on Academic Probation and Dismissal. The Committee on Academic Probation and Dismissal may uphold the dismissal decision or may recommend reversal of the dismissal decision and may impose additional conditions for continuing registration. Students are limited to one appeal per semester and the committee’s decision is binding and final.
