Dismissal

Students may be dismissed from Rochester University for failure to maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (policy outlined below), for repeated violations of Academic Integrity (policy outlined in the Code of Academic Integrity), and for violation of the university's standards of conduct (policy outlined in the Student Handbook).

All students are expected to maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress as described in the previous section. Students whose cumulative grade point average (CGPA) at the end of any semester is between 0.00 and 1.00 will be dismissed immediately, unless they have an approved appeal and academic plan (students who earn a 0.00 CGPA because of complete withdrawal, their first semester, are excluded from this policy). An SAP Appeal Self-Assessment form must be submitted to the SAP Appeals Committee by the deadline outlined in the student's SAP letter. Appeals submitted after the deadline will not be considered. Dismissed students are unable to re-enroll for a full calendar year. Upon re-admittance, students will be assigned an academic status of Academic/Financial Aid Warning or Academic/ Financial Aid Suspension, based on their previous academic status.

Students with a CGPA between 1.00 and 2.00 may remain on Academic/Financial Aid Suspension for two consecutive semesters after being placed on suspension. If the student’s cumulative grade point average (CGPA) remains below 2.0 after two consecutive semesters on Academic/Financial Aid Suspension, he or she will be academically dismissed. After a full calendar year of non-attendance at Rochester University, the student may apply for re-admission through Admissions. Upon re-admittance, an Academic/Financial Aid Suspension status will be applied if the student does not have an approved appeal.
