Dean's List, Honor Roll, Warning, Probation, Suspension, and Dismissal

Dean's List and Honor Roll

For Undergraduate Students: Any full-time student who demonstrates academic excellence is recognized by being named to the Dean’s List or Honor Roll and is notified in writing by the Office of the Registrar, via ERAU email.

Students who are enrolled at a full-time status and earn a GPA of 3.50-4.00 for a term and maintain a minimum 2.00 cumulative GPA will be named to the Dean’s List. Students who are enrolled at a full-time status and earn a GPA of 3.20-3.49 for a term and maintain a minimum 2.00 cumulative GPA will be named to the Honor Roll.

Academic Warning, Probation, Undergraduate Suspension, and Graduate Dismissal

Undergraduate Students:

Warning: A Worldwide Campus student whose cumulative or term GPA falls below 2.00 will be placed on Academic Warning for up to two consecutive terms.

Probation: After a second consecutive term on Academic Warning, a student whose cumulative or term GPA remains below 2.00 will be placed on Academic Probation for up to two consecutive terms. 

Suspension: After a second consecutive term on Academic Probation, a student whose cumulative or term GPA remains below 2.00 for an additional term will be academically suspended from the University.

When a change of grade or the conversion of the grade “I” changes a student’s academic status, the previous academic status of warning, probation, or suspension is removed and does not become part of the student’s permanent record.

All ERAU coursework taken at the undergraduate level applies to a student’s CGPA, whether applicable to the current degree plan or not.

For students who have been academically suspended from the University, a written petition for readmission detailing the existence of any exceptional mitigating circumstances must accompany the application for readmission and fees. Suspended students are eligible to reapply for admission after completing a minimum of 15 semester hours of academic credit with a CGPA of 2.50 on a 4.00 scale or higher from an accredited degree-granting institution. A suspended student who wishes to be readmitted to another ERAU campus should apply for readmission to that campus through its Office of the Registrar or the equivalent office. Unless readmitted to the University, suspended students will not be permitted to take any further courses with the University. Student questions regarding next steps and/or reinstatement after a suspension should be directed to their academic advisor. Questions regarding the undergraduate suspension procedure should be directed to the Office of the Registrar, at worldwide.registrar@erau.edu.

Undergraduate students returning to the University on conditional-admission status who are placed on warning, probation, or suspension should speak with their academic advisor, who will work with the Office of the Registrar if status adjustments are necessary. A student on conditional-admission status who fails to satisfy the conditions of his/her admission may be suspended.

Undergraduate students on conditional-admission status should refer to the Undergraduate Conditional Admission section of the catalog for further information. 

Graduate Students:

Academic Probation: Whenever the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of a student who has graduate status falls below 3.0, and/or the student earns a U (Unsatisfactory) or F (Failure) grade in graduate milestones or thesis coursework, the student will be placed on academic probation. 

A student who receives a U (Unsatisfactory) or F (Failure) grade in graduate milestone or thesis coursework will be required to complete an improvement plan to meet graduate milestones or thesis requirements during the subsequent semester. The student must earn an S (satisfactory) or P (Pass) grade in the subsequent semester to be removed from probation status.

Academic Dismissal: Students will be dismissed from their graduate program whenever any of the following conditions occur:

  • Students on conditional status fail to satisfy the conditions of their admission.
  • A final grade of less than B is earned in any undergraduate course required in the graduate program as a condition of admission.
  • A final grade of less than B is received in any three graduate courses.
  • A final grade of U has been received for any two graduate courses.
  • A final grade of F has been received for any two graduate courses.
  • A final grade of F is received in any course worth 6 credit hours or more.
  • The cumulative grade point average has not been raised to at least 3.0 within the first twelve graduate hours attempted after the semester/term in which the student is placed on academic probation.

All ERAU Coursework taken at the graduate level applies to the student’s CGPA, whether applicable to the current degree plan or not.

Academic dismissal is entered on the student's permanent record.

To appeal academic dismissal, the student must submit a petition in writing detailing the existence of any exceptional, mitigating circumstances to the Chair of the academic department with responsibility for overseeing the graduate program or their designee within 30 days of the receipt of the dismissal notice. The College Dean and/or Department Chair or designee will provide his/her decision to uphold the dismissal or recommend a dismissal reversal and notify, in writing, the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost or designee, who will review the case and make a final determination of the action to be taken. Such action will be carried out in a timely manner not to exceed 30 days following receipt of the petition by the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost or designee. If confirmed, academic dismissal is final.

Students may appeal their academic dismissal from the University only once.

Dismissal for Cause

The University reserves the right to dismiss a student at any time and without further reason, if the student exhibits the following undesirable conduct:

  • Actions that pose a risk to the health, safety, or property of members of the University community, including, but not limited to, other students, faculty, staff, administrative officers, or the student himself/herself.
  • Conduct that disrupts the educational process of the University.
  • Any other just cause.
