Scholastic Standing

It is the responsibility of each student to become familiar with the academic regulations of the school, particularly with regard to scholastic standing requirements.

Cumulative Grade-Point Average.
The cumulative grade-point average is computed by multiplying the grade received in each course taken for 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 divided by the total credits of those courses.

First-year students: first-semester grades may be omitted from the cumulative grade-point average. All credits earned in the first semester are applicable to the degree requirements. This average is known as the adjusted cumulative grade-point average. A student who elects to have these grades omitted should complete a form for this purpose available with the Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Programs, School of Public Affairs and Administration, 111 Washington Street, Second Floor, Newark, NJ 07102

This must be done by the end of the second semester of the first year. This rule is not applicable to transfer students unless the student transferred from another division of the university offering the same option or the student transferred into the school with fewer than 12 credits.

Satisfactory Grades.
Progression through the curriculum is based on satisfactory completion of required courses. Satisfactory achievement is interpreted by Rutgers as a grade of C or better. A grade of D or F in required or prerequisite courses will not be accepted as meeting the requirements for graduation from the School of Public Affairs and Administration. If a grade of D or F is received, the student may repeat the course only once to obtain a satisfactory grade.

Students on probation will be blocked from online WEBREG registration and required to meet with an academic adviser until they achieve satisfactory academic progress. They are limited to a maximum of 12 credits per semester until they have achieved a cumulative GPA of 2.000.
