Good Standing, Academic Probation, and Academic Dismissal
A student is designated with the academic status of Good Standing when making satisfactory progress toward the master’s degree, which is considered a 3.00 grade point average (GPA). If the student’s local GPA drops below 3.00 at the end of a semester, the student will be placed on academic probation. Those who achieve a semester GPA of 3.00 in the subsequent semester will be restored to Good Standing, and students whose cumulative and semester GPAs both remain below 3.00 will be dismissed.
A student who has been dismissed for academic reasons may request to be considered for further enrollment at LAPU after taking one full semester off.
A petition will be required which must state:
- Intentions to maintain acceptable academic standing.
- Strategies for probable success.
Re-enrollment occurs at the discretionary approval of the institution, and is not guaranteed. If the petition to return is approved, the student will be admitted on probation and his or her status will be monitored regularly thereafter to ensure that the student is making satisfactory progress in remedying grade deficiencies. Failure to maintain a local grade-point average of 3.0 will result in disqualification from further study at LAPU.
