Good Standing

The minimum cumulative GPA required for students to be in “good standing” is a 2.0 on all credits attempted at LCSC.


At the end of a semester, students who do not attain a 2.0 cumulative GPA are placed on academic probation for the next semester of enrollment. Students on academic probation who earn a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher the next semester will be returned to good standing status. Students on academic probation who obtain a term GPA of 2.0 or higher during the subsequent semester after being placed on probation, but whose cumulative GPA is still below 2.0, will remain on probation.


Students on probation with a cumulative GPA below 2.0 and a subsequent semester GPA below 2.0 will be placed on academic suspension.  Students on academic suspension will petition directly to the Petition Committee.  If a student who is placed on academic suspension is registered for the subsequent term, classes will be removed from the student’s schedule by the Registrar & Records Office.

First-semester students who earn below a 1.0 cumulative GPA will be placed on academic suspension.

Suspended students living on campus must make arrangements with Residence Life.

Reinstatement Following Suspension

Current students who are reinstated after suspension will meet with their advisor to re-enroll in courses.

Students who are academically suspended and sit out at least one term must reapply for admission and submit a petition to be considered for reinstatement.
