Academic Status


This term is used as an indication of a student’s academic standing with the University. Students must attain certain minimum academic standards in order to remain in good academic standing. Students failing to maintain these standards are placed on academic probation at the end of a regular term in which the cumulative grade point average (GPA) on academic credit work attempted at Cumberland University does not equal or exceed the minimum specified for the student’s proper classification hours. See the table in the probation, suspension, and the dismissal section of the Catalog for specific requirements. Students who, during a probationary fall or spring semester, fail to raise their Grade Point Average (GPA) to the minimum standard prescribed for the appropriate classification at the end of that semester may be academically suspended from Cumberland University for one (1) or more semesters. Students who are placed on academic probation or on academic suspension may attend the summer semester in order to attempt to earn good academic standing. Summer semesters do not count as the required one semester of non-enrollment for academic suspension.
