Academic Retention Policy
Academic Retention Criteria: The academic retention status of students is dependent on the cumulative credits attempted and cumulative grade point averages earned at Lewis-Clark State College, according to the following Academic Warning Scale:
|Credits Attempted||Minimum GPA Required|
|65 or more||2.00|
- Good Standing: The minimum cumulative grade point average required for students to be in "good standing" is a 2.00 on credits attempted at Lewis-Clark State College.
- Warning: Students are placed on "academic warning" when their cumulative grade point average falls below a 2.00, but not below the minimum grade point average on the above scale.
- Probation: At the end of a semester, students who do not attain the cumulative grade point average required for their cumulative credits are placed on "academic probation" for the next semester of enrollment. Students on academic probation who earn a cumulative grade point average higher than the minimum required for their cumulative credits but less than 2.00 the subsequent semester of enrollment will be removed from academic probation but will be placed on academic warning. Students on academic probation who earn a cumulative grade point average of 2.00 or higher will be returned to a "good standing" status.
Students on academic probation who obtain a term grade point average of 2.00 or higher during the subsequent semester after being placed on probation, but whose cumulative grade point average is still below the minimum required for their cumulative credits, will remain on probation.
- Suspension: Students on academic warning or probation will be placed on "academic suspension" at the end of their semester on academic warning or probation unless the minimum cumulative grade point average required for their cumulative credits or a semester grade point average of at least 2.00 is obtained. Students on academic suspension cannot register for classes. If students placed on academic suspension are registered for classes in subsequent terms, these classes will be removed from the students' schedules by the Office of the Registrar.
