Students are considered to be in good academic standing with a cumulative G.P.A. of 2.00.
Students are placed on Academic Warning when less than 12 attempted Leighton University credit hours are earned, and the cumulative grade point average is below the 2.00/4.00 scale. An academic warning does not restrict registration, but students are encouraged to discuss their lack of satisfactory progress with a counselor.
Students are placed on probation when 12 or more Leighton University credit hours are attempted and earned less than a 2.00/4.00 cumulative and semester grade point average. Students must meet with a counselor to review their academic progress before enrollment for the following Term. A student on Academic Probation is restricted from registration until he or she complies with this requirement. A registration hold will stay on the student's record until the cumulative grade point average reaches 2.00 or higher. The student will be restored to good standing once their cumulative grade point average is 2.00 or higher.
Students are placed on Academic Suspension after serving one semester on Academic Probation with a cumulative and semester grade point average of less than 2.00/4.00. After the Academic Probation semester, a student will be withdrawn from current semester courses and issued a refund when final grades are posted. The Suspension status will be in effect for 12 consecutive months. A registration hold will remain on the student's record until the cumulative grade point average reaches 2.00 or higher. Students will be reinstated to "Good Standing" once their cumulative grade point average is 2.00 or higher.
Excessive Withdrawal Policy
Students with a recurring, overall withdrawal pattern from Leighton University courses will be periodically notified of the effect of withdrawal grades on progress toward degree completions. Students are asked to meet with an Academic Navigator, in the Academic Success Center, to discuss effective course selection and completion strategies.
Appeals for Academic Reinstatement
Appeals relating to the Standards of Academic Progress policy should be made to the Vice President for Enrollment Management and Students Affairs.
