General School Guidelines
In order to remain in good standing with the school, students must maintain a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.25 no matter which option they have selected. ** Individual options may have higher GPA or other requirements, so please be sure to know the specific requirements of your option.
Failure to maintain the minimum grade point average will result in probation for the first semester, and suspension from enrolling in 300-400 level courses after the probationary semester until the cumulative grade point average is raised to or above the 2.25 minimum.
All IPAT majors must earn a minimum grade of a C- in all required courses, including pre-requisites.
Courses specifically listed in the University catalog as requirements must be taken for a traditional letter grade.
