A minimum of a 2.0 gpa is required to be in good academic standing at East Carolina University.
Warning is the first semester in which a student finishes with below a 2.0 cumulative gpa.
If, at the end of the semester that the student is on warning, the cumulative gpa remains below a 2.0, the student is placed on probation.
Probation is the second consecutive semester in which a student has below a 2.0 cumulative gpa.
A student whose cumulative gpa falls below a 2.0, for the first time, is placed on warning. If, during the semester on warning, the student's cumulative gpa remains below a 2.0, the student is placed on probation. A student on probation may remain at ECU (on probation) as long as he/she earns a minimum 2.5 gpa for the term. If, during the semester on probation, the student's gpa remains below a 2.0 (and the student did not earn a minimum 2.5 gpa for the term), the student will be suspended from the university for one semester. Students will be allowed to take summer courses during warning, probation, and suspension periods.
Suspension occurs at the end of a student's third, consecutive semester with below a 2.0 cumulative gpa and below a 2.5 for the semester.
A student suspended from the university must serve a semester-long dismissal (fall or spring). However, students may attend summer terms at ECU during this time. If a student is suspended after a spring term, he or she may enroll for summer terms without completing a readmission application. A student suspended after a fall term or summer term must complete a readmission application and be readmitted to attend a summer term.
