A student must achieve a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.00 to graduate. A minimum cumulative GPA of 1.70 as a freshman, 1.90 as a sophomore, 2.00 as a junior or senior must be achieved to maintain satisfactory academic status at the college.
Probation I: The first time a student's cumulative GPA falls below the minimum required, the student shall be placed on Probation I for his/her next regular semester. The student will receive an email from the Office of the Registrar outlining available academic support services and requiring the student to meet with an advisor from the Advising and Enrichment Center.
Probation II: When a student is on Probation I and his/her cumulative GPA falls below the minimum required for two sequential (not necessarily contiguous) regular semesters, the student shall be placed on Probation II for his/her next regular semester. The student will receive an email from the Office of the Registrar outlining available academic support services and requiring the student to meet with an advisor from the Advising and Enrichment Center. A student on Probation II status cannot register for more than 14 credits until he/she is removed from probation.
Dismissal: When a student's cumulative GPA falls below the minimum required for three sequential (not necessarily contiguous) regular semesters, the student will be dismissed from the college.
Dismissal is defined as ineligible to pursue credit-bearing courses at NYIT for a period of two academic years or until a minimum GPA of 2.0 is earned for the most recent 24 credits taken at another accredited U.S. institution of higher education.
The decision of dismissal shall be automatically appealed to the Committee on Academic Probation and Dismissal, which may uphold the dismissal decision or may recommend reversal of the dismissal decision and impose additional conditions for continuing registration. Students are limited to one appeal per semester, and the committee's decision is binding and final.
*Students who have been dismissed from NYIT may appeal the decision to the Committee on Academic Probation and Dismissal.
**Students on Probation must complete a Probation Acknowledgement with the Advising and Enrichment Center.
The Advising and Enrichment Center strives to support the academic needs of all NYIT students. We work with students in an effort to prevent academic hardships and we will work with you to personalize your experience. If you ever find yourself on Academic Probation, the AEC will work closely with you to develop a plan for Academic Success.
