In order to graduate, students must have an overall grade point average of 2.00 (transfer work included) and a grade point average of 2.00 overall for all work taken at Emporia State University. A student is in "good standing" when the following cumulative grade point average or higher is achieved:
The classification, credits toward degree, and cumulative GPA are calculated at the end of each semester.
|Sophomores||30 - 59||2.0|
|Juniors||60 - 89||2.0|
|Seniors||90 or more||2.0|
NOTE: A=4.0 B=3.0 C=2.0 D=1.0
Only grades A through F count toward hours attempted.
The last credits and grade earned are counted when a course is repeated.
When the cumulative GPA falls below these levels the student will be placed on scholastic probation after attempting a minimum of 12 semester hours.
Scholastic probationary status indicates serious deficiency in the student's progress toward a college degree. The purpose of scholastic probation is to call attention to the fact that the student is not making satisfactory progress.
A student who is placed on probation and achieves a 2.00 GPA the following semester will be continued on probation if the required CGPA is not achieved.
If the required CGPA for good scholastic standing is met, the student will be removed from probation.
If the student fails to achieve a 2.00 GPA the following semester and fails to achieve the required CGPA, he/she will be required to withdraw. Students may petition for immediate reinstatement in person or by writing to the Registrar.
If the appropriate committee then denies a request for reinstatement, the student is not eligible for enrollment for the next term. A request for reinstatement for any future term should be in writing and addressed to the Office of the Registrar. Such requests should be received no later than 30 days prior to the date of desired readmission.
