Students are expected to maintain a grade point average of 2.0 “C” or better in their academic work at WJU in order to continue in good standing.
Students who complete 12 or more units in a semester and earn a GPA of 3.85 or higher are given special recognition by being placed on the Dean’s List.
Students who complete 12 or more units in a semester and earn a GPA of 3.50 – 3.849 are given recognition by being placed on the Honor Roll.
A student whose semester GPA falls below 2.00 will be placed on Academic Probation. Probation is a warning that studies are not of expected quality. A student on probation should plan carefully to avoid subsequent dismissal. The student should seek advice from a faculty advisor, and it is the student’s responsibility to seek the advice.
A student placed on academic probation must register for no more than 12 units and sign up for academic counseling with the Academic Skills Counselor. Probation will be lifted if the next semester’s GPA is 2.00 or higher if their cumulative WJU averages are above probation level. If cumulative WJU averages are below the disqualification level after at least two semesters at the University, students may be academically dismissed (see below).
No more than two semesters of academic probation are allowed before a student is subject to academic dismissal.
If a student’s semester GPA remains below 2.00 for two consecutive semesters, he or she is academically disqualified. “Academic dismissal” will be printed on the transcripts and the student will be required to leave the University for at least one academic year. A certified letter mailed to the last address provided by the student to the Registrar will discharge all University responsibility for notification.
When one calendar year has elapsed after academic dismissal, the student may apply to re-enter and may be allowed to do so if evidence indicates positive possibility for scholastic success. Please see Application for Readmission.
