Grade Point Average Requirement (Qualitative)
Students must maintain the following minimum semester grade point average (GPA):
If a student's GPA falls below the required minimum semester GPA, his or her eligibility to receive financial aid will be jeopardized. A student will be put on financial aid probation for the semester following the term the student fails to earn the required minimum semester GPA. The student has the next semester of attendance to earn the required minimum semester GPA. The student may receive financial aid while on financial aid probation. At the end of the probationary period, if the required minimum semester GPA is met, the student is taken off of financial aid probation. If the required minimum semester GPA is not achieved, then the student will be put on financial aid suspension during the next semester of attendance. The student will not receive financial aid assistance while on financial aid suspension. The total cumulative earned hours consist of hours earned at ECSU and accepted transfer credits. Transfer credits are not included in the computation of the semester GPA for financial aid unless the credit was earned while attending other schools as a Transient student (ECSU student taking classes at another institution as an ECSU student).
