Courses with grades of Incomplete (I, PI) are not included in semester index computations for honors and deficiencies. Completion grades for courses with prior Incompletes are included in the graduation index and will affect honors and scholastic deficiency.

Students cannot earn scholastic honors, be placed on scholastic probation, or be dropped from the university at the end of a summer session.

Scholastic Drop

A student on scholastic probation shall be academically dropped from the University if, at the close of any regular semester, the graduation index is less than that required of a student as shown in Table B or if he/she receives failing (F) grades in six credit hours or more for the semester.

This rule shall not apply for the semester in which the student completes all requirements for a degree. A student dropped by this rule and later duly readmitted as a regular student shall be readmitted on probation. In order to be readmitted a student must contact The Office of the Dean of Students.

Courses with grades of Incomplete (I, PI) are not included in the semester index computations for honors and deficiencies. Completion grades for courses with prior incompletes are included in the graduation index and will affect honors and scholastic deficiency.
