Academic Review

At the end of each semester, the Committee on Academic Standing, composed of faculty and dean's representatives, will review and may take action on the record of every student whose semester or cumulative grade-point average is below 2.000. The committee may suspend or dismiss students from the School of Arts and Sciences (except at the end of the first semester) or place students on academic warning or probation. All such students are notified via email using their official Rutgers email address. However, all students are responsible for monitoring their own academic record and performance, and failure to receive the notification does not nullify the academic standing action. In addition, students are encouraged to seek assistance early on from the appropriate university resources.

For the purpose of academic standing, grades reported as TF, TD, TC etc are calculated into the student's semester grade-point average as the corresponding letter grade. Courses with E and J prefixes are excluded from the formula for grade-point average calculation. Exercising the repeated course option does not negate prior academic standing actions.
