Scholastic Standing Committee


The Rutgers School of Business-Camden (RSBC) Scholastic Standing Committee (SSC) oversees the implementation of academic regulations and receives petitions for exemptions from RSBC academic policy, such as change of courses after the deadlines, course overload requests, reinstatement after academic dismissal, intrauniversity admission to the RSBC, and retroactive withdrawal from courses. The SSC will inform students in writing of its determinations. The committee considers petitions for retroactive withdrawal no later than one year after the end of the semester in which the courses in question were taken. Any student wishing to submit a petition to the committee should obtain the proper forms from the Academic Services Office on the second floor of the Business Science Building or from the forms page of the Academic Services Office website. Such petitions are considered by the SSC on the basis of technical error, new information, and/or extenuating circumstances. Petitions that address failure(s) in Webreg should include the registration confirmation. Only fully documented written petitions are considered.

Cumulative Grade-Point Average

An undergraduate student's academic rank within the class cohort is determined by the cumulative grade-point average (CGPA). This average is computed by multiplying the numerical value of the grade received in each course taken for degree credit, and to be included in the average, by the number of credits the course is worth to obtain the grade points earned in that course. The grade points earned in all such courses are then added together and the sum is divided by the total credits of those courses.

1) Numerical Grade Equivalent(s) x Credit(s) = Grade Point(s) A=4, B+=3.5, B=3, C+=2.5, C=2, D=1, F=0

2) Semester Grade Points/Semester Credit(s) = Semester Grade-Point Average

3) Total Grade Points /Total Credits = Cumulative Grade-Point Average

Students who have transferred from other accredited colleges/universities may receive advanced standing for courses taken, as determined by the transfer credit evaluation; however, non-Rutgers grades are not recorded on the academic records, nor are such grades calculated in the cumulative grade-point average. The CGPA appearing on the academic record is a reflection of the scholastic performance of the student only while enrolled in the Rutgers system and is the basis for the determination of academic standing and any academic honors or penalties.

Poor Academic Performance
Scholastic standing is determined by cumulative grade-point average (CGPA), which is computed at the end of each semester. Any student with a CGPA less than 2.000 is referred to the SSC This committee reviews the work of all students with deficient GPAs at the close of each semester and may take any of the actions listed below. Additionally, degrees are not awarded to any student with a CGPA less than 2.000.

Scholastic Standing Guidelines (Academic Performance)
At the conclusion of each semester, students' grades are reviewed for academic performance. Any student whose semester GPA is less than 2.000 or whose CGPA is less than 2.500 is directed to meet with the academic services staff and may be referred to the SSC for additional review and action. The following is an outline of the procedures used by RSBC regarding student academic performance:

Early Warning Alert

Faculty may issue an early warning if they find that a student's performance and/or attendance are unsatisfactory. Early warnings are issued by the eighth week of the semester. Students are encouraged to meet with their faculty to learn what steps may be taken to improve one's academic performance. Students may also meet with the Academic Services Office staff if additional attention is desired to address the area(s) of concern.


Academic Warning (W)
Academic warnings are issued to students with a semester GPA below 2.000 or with CGPA between 2.000-2.499. The student must:
1. Meet with an academic services staff member to discuss one's academic performance.
2. Identify the factors that negatively impacted the academic performance and explore methods to improve future performance.
Placed on Probation (PP)
Students are placed on academic probation for having a CGPA below 2.000 and are subject to the conditions listed below. Students may be placed on probation only once in their college careers. Any future semester wherein the student earns a CGPA of less than 2.000 he or she will be placed on continued probation. The student must:
1. Achieve a minimum semester GPA of 2.000 during the next semester of enrollment.
2. Enroll in no more than 12 credits.
3. Develop and submit an academic plan that outlines how he or she will improve his or her performance in the next semester of enrollment.
4. Meet with an academic services staff member monthly to monitor academic progress. If these conditions are not met, the student may face academic dismissal.
Continued Probation (CP)
Students are placed on continued probation if they have met the conditions of their placed-on-probation status, but have not yet earned a minimum CGPA of 2.000. If a student was once placed on probation, returned to good academic standing, and then their CGPA falls below 2.000 for an additional time during their college career, the student will be placed on continued probation and be subject to the conditions listed below. The student must:
1. Achieve a minimum semester GPA of 2.500 in the next semester of enrollment.
2. Enroll in no more than 12 credits.
3. Refine his or her academic plan that outlines performance goals and areas of improvement for the next semester of enrollment.
4. Meet with an academic services staff member monthly to monitor academic progress. If these conditions are not met, the student may face academic dismissal.
Academic Suspension (S)
Any student who earns a CGPA of less than 1.000 after one semester of enrollment may, at the discretion of the SSC, be suspended from RSBC and prohibited from enrolling in any Rutgers University-Camden course(s) for at least one semester. This action is taken to provide the student with an opportunity to reflect on their academic performance and to determine one's level of commitment and motivation to continue collegiate study at RSBC. Suspended students may file an appeal in writing (hard copy) for reinstatement within 10 days of their receipt of the suspension notice. The appeal should be addressed to RSBC SSC and submitted to the Academic Services Office. All appeals will be reviewed by SSC and students will be notified in writing of SSC's determination.

Academic Dismissal (D)

Students may face academic dismissal from the university if any of the following occurs:
1. They have not met the conditions of their probationary status.
2. They are native students (those who began their college careers at Rutgers University-Camden) whose cumulative grade-point average drops below the following levels: 1.400 after one year of attendance; 1.700 after two years of attendance; 1.900 after three years of attendance.
3. They are transfer students that do not achieve the following minimum cumulative grade-point average: 1.400 with 22 degree credits; 1.700 with 57 degree credits; 1.900 with 89 degree credits.
Academically dismissed students are prohibited from enrolling in any Rutgers University-Camden course for a period of at least one academic year, exclusive of Summer Session. Students are strongly encouraged to meet with a member of the Academic Services Office staff to explore the conditions and/or actions which may have resulted in dismissal and to explore the options available to them for reinstatement.

Dismissal Appeal
Dismissed students may file an appeal, requesting a review of the dismissal decision in writing (a hard copy) within 10 days of their notification of dismissal. The appeal should be addressed to RSBC SSC and delivered to the Academic Services Office. All appeals will be reviewed by SSC and students will be notified in writing of the SSC's determination. Reinstatement after academic suspension or dismissal applicants for reinstatement must fully complete and submit a Reinstatement Appeal form to the SSC. If coursework was completed outside of Rutgers, official transcripts should be submitted to: Attn: Reinstatement Transcript Review, Academic Services Office, RSBC-SSC, 227 Penn Street, Camden, NJ 0810.
