As a CGU student, you are expected to meet and maintain satisfactory academic progress (SAP) toward completion of your degree program. The two primary criteria used to determine your SAP are the following.
GPA Requirement. You must maintain a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 in all your coursework taken at Claremont Graduate University. Individual academic programs may require a higher GPA and or additional standards of progress. CGU grading policies are provided in the Transcript Legend. Also consult the academic program section for your department or program in the CGU Bulletin.
Maximum Incompletes. You may have no more than two Incomplete (I) grades on your record at any time. (Courses in which the I has lapsed to a permanent grade are no longer Incomplete.)
Note that satisfactory progress toward a degree is also assessed by your time to degree.
Doctoral students. You must show satisfactory progress in research and examinations as judged or determined by the faculty in your academic program.
The Registrar's Office places an academic probation hold on your record if you fail to meet SAP standards. This hold prevents you from registering for the semester.
Academic probation may have other important implications.
Financial Aid. Eligibility or continued eligibility for financial aid may be seriously affected. Consult a Financial Aid representative.
International Students. Per SEVIS regulations of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) division of the United States government, your eligibility or continued eligibility for international student status in the United States may be seriously and negatively affected by academic probation, repeated academic probation, and extensions of time toward completion of your degree. CGU must comply all ICE regulations. Contact the International Student Coordinator for guidance and assistance immediately.
Procedure. If you have been placed on academic probation, refer to procedures on the Academic Probation webpage.
If you are placed on academic probation, you must resolve the situations that incurred this status by the end of the following semester. If you are unable to work yourself out of academic probation, you are subject to dismissal from the University by the faculty of your academic program.
