Transfer students and students who change majors or elect to pursue

a second major will be allowed 150% of the time stipulated above for

completing degree requirements.

Satisfactory progress is also measured by grade point average. The

minimum acceptable grade point average at the end of the first year is 1.50.

At the end of the sophomore year it is 1.80. At the end of the junior year

and thereafter it is 2.00.

Because of the strength of the College’s academic advising and the

careful planning of annual course offerings, students are guaranteed to

graduate within four years if they satisfy additional guidelines. If the

College fails to offer courses required for a specific major or an academic

advising error leads to the necessity for an additional course or courses

in the fifth year, the College will cover the cost of tuition plus any course

fees for the necessary courses. Students who do not satisfy these specific

requirements can also graduate within four years, but are not guaranteed

to do so. The guidelines below apply only to the guarantee and not to any

specific graduation requirements listed elsewhere in this catalog.
