Periodically, the Scholastic Standing Committee, composed of faculty and academic staff, reviews and takes action on the record of any student whose academic performance is considered unsatisfactory (probation, suspension, and dismissal). Such students may be dismissed from the Newark College of Arts and Sciences or placed on probation. The decisions of the committee constitute the final authority on these matters.
The committee notifies students of the actions it takes on their record in writing. However, all students are expected to be familiar with the academic regulations of the college and are responsible for monitoring their own academic record and performance. Lack of awareness of scholastic standing policies or failure to acknowledge the notification does not nullify the decision of the scholastic standing committee.
For the purpose of scholastic standing:
- grades reported as IN, TZ, TF, or NG and blank grades may be calculated into the student's semester grade-point average as F;
successful grades are those reported as A through D (including temporary grades TB+, TB, TC+, TC, and TD), S, and TT;
credits for courses currently in progress, courses designated with the N credit prefix, and courses in which a student has an outstanding temporary grade other than TF (i.e., TB+, TB, TC+, TC, TD, TT, or TZ) will not count as attempted credits;
credits for courses with W grades are considered unsuccessful attempted credits
- attendance during a Winter or a Summer Session is not counted as a semester of enrollment.
Exercising the repeated course option does not negate prior scholastic standing action.
