Academic Standing

College of Arts & Sciences Policy

After the completion of each academic semester, the Academic Standards Committee reviews the records of all students in the College of Arts & Sciences. Students are required to maintain a 2.0 cumulative and semester grade point average and to complete at least 12, and preferably 16, credits during a semester. The Academic Standards Committee is empowered to place students who fail to make satisfactory progress on probation or suspension, or to require their permanent dismissal.

All students should become familiar with the Boston University Policy on Academic Standing for Undergraduate Students in Full-Time Programs.
