  School of Public Health 2018-2020 Academic Policies and Procedures Satisfactory Academic Progress  

Satisfactory Academic Progress

Sound academic principles require that students be required to maintain standards of satisfactory academic progress. In addition, federal regulations require the Rutgers School of Public Health to establish satisfactory academic progress standards for students who are awarded federal financial aid funds. The following standards apply to all matriculated students, whether they are financial aid recipients or not, as well as only those nonmatriculated students who are receiving financial aid. Students who fail to maintain satisfactory academic progress during any semester may be placed on probation or suspension or may be dismissed, in accordance with the policies of the school.

The standards of satisfactory academic progress measure a student's performance in three areas:

  • completion rate;
  • cumulative grade-point average (GPA); and
  • maximum time frame.

The RBHS Office of Financial Aid shall evaluate each student's academic progress annually after the conclusion of the spring semester. Academic progress for both part-time and full-time students will be evaluated under the same criteria.

Please visit the School of Public Health's Academic Policies and Procedures webpage for detailed information about the criteria for measuring a student's performance in the above three areas as well as other relevant information.
