A student must achieve a minimum cumulative grade point average (cGPA) of 2.00 to graduate.
A minimum cumulative GPA of 1.70 as a freshman (less than 31 credits earned), 1.9 as a sophomore (31-62 earned credits), and 2.0 as a junior or senior (63 or more credits earned). Probation statuses are only assigned after regular semester (Fall and Spring semesters).
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.
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.
Students who are placed on Academic Probation will be notified via email by the Office of the Registrar and the Advising and Enrichment Center (AEC) outlining available academic support services. Students will be asked to reflect on their performance during the previous semester(s) and will be required to complete an online Contract for Academic Success before meeting with an AEC advisor. In addition, students on academic probation are restricted to registering for a maximum of 14 credits for the following semester and will be required to complete an online Achieving Collegiate Excellence (ACE) seminar to help them return to good academic standing.
Academic Dismissal Policy
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 U.S.. institution of higher education.
The decision of dismissal shall be automatically appealed to the Committee on Academic Probation and Dismissal, which may uphold the dismissal decision or may recommend reversal of the dismissal decision and impose additional conditions for continuing registration. Students are limited to one appeal per semester, and the committee's decision is binding and final.
Students who have been dismissed from NYIT may appeal the decision to the Committee on Academic Probation and Dismissal
The Advising and Enrichment Center strives to support the academic needs of all NYIT students. We work with students in an effort to prevent academic hardships and we will work with you to personalize your experience. If you ever find yourself on Academic Probation, the AEC will work closely with you to develop a plan for Academic Success.
