How do I know what my class standing is?
Class standing is determined by the number of semester hours a student has completed in his/her program of study. For sophomore standing, a student must have a minimum of 30 semester hours of accumulated credits; for junior standing, a minimum of 60 hours; for senior standing, a minimum of 90 hours (see Academic Catalog). A student should consult the Registrar's Office or Academic Advisement Center regarding any questions pertaining to class standing.
How do I know if I am in good academic standing?
The College's Undergraduate Academic Standards Committee meets at the end of each semester to review all undergraduate students' academic progress. Freshmen with a cumulative grade point average of 1.70 or higher and sophomores, juniors, and seniors with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher are defined as being in good academic standing (see Academic Catalog).
How do I know if I am not doing well in a class?
At Medaille, many instructors submit academic warnings to students as an early-alert system. Academic warnings are given to students who are in danger of failing a course, due to low/failing grades and/or attendance issues. A student will usually receive an academic warning within the first half of the semester, via their Medaille email account. Students are asked to meet with their academic advisor to discuss possible issues that are contributing to underperformance in the course and practical strategies that will help improve the situation. Students are usually referred to their instructor, the Academic Support Center, tutoring and/or personal counseling.
* It is important for students to communicate with all of their instructors throughout the entire semester.
