To remain in good academic standing, you must maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 ("C"). Your quality cumulative GPA is an average of all of the course grades you earn at SHIP.
If you fall below 2.0, you will be placed on academic probation. If on probation, you can still schedule classes and return the next semester to give you a chance to raise your GPA. If you do not raise your GPA and remain on academic probation 2 semesters in a row, you may be academically dismissed from the university. If your semester GPA is below a 1.0, you are subject to academic dismissal.
Be aware that some majors might require a cumulative GPA higher than 2.0 to declare and satisfy program requirements. So, making good grades should be your number one priority from the very beginning.
