In order for a student to be in good academic standing at Robert Morris University, he or she must have a minimum cumulative QPA of 1.60 after attempting 12 credits, 1.80 after attempting 24 credits, and 2.00 after 48 credits are attempted. Regardless of any QPA achieved, a student has 3 or more F's, W's, or N's within the first 24 credit hours of course work attempted is not in good academic standing and may be dismissed from the University.
The first time that a student does not meet the necessary standards, he or she shall be placed on academic probation for the next semester of enrollment. (A student placed on academic probation is strongly advised to meet with their RMU counselor and devise a plan that will enable the student to return to good academic standing.)
A student on academic probation who fails to achieve a grade-point average that will remove the probationary status, will be placed on continued academic probation and must meet with their RMU counselor and complete the appropriate Center for Student Success forms.
If the deficiency continues after a semester on continued academic probation, the student, upon the recommendation of their counselor is subject to being placed on academic suspension by the Academic Affairs Office and is ineligible to register for classes for one semester. The decision to place a student on Academic Suspension may be appealed to the dean of the student's degree program. If the dean approves an appeal, the dean must complete an academic conference contract and submit it to the Registrar.
A student may apply for academic reinstatement after a minimum of one semester of academic suspension. Reinstatement applications are addressed to the dean of the school in which the student wishes to matriculate. A student who is reinstated must meet the prescribed activities for academic success set forth by the dean of the school. If the dean approves an appeal, the dean must complete an academic conference contract and submit it to the Registrar.
Failure to meet all conditions of the prescribed activities for academic success may result in the student's academic dismissal from Robert Morris University.
