Academic Good Standing
A student at East Stroudsburg University must achieve a minimum cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 2.000 to maintain satisfactory academic standing.
Regular matriculated students who are below the 2.000 QPA will be placed on academic warning. While on academic warning the student may not register for more than 13 credits in any semester or enroll in off-campus internships.

Regular matriculated students who have a quality point average lower than the values listed below are in academic jeopardy and will be subject to the following actions by the university.
|Less Than 16 Credits
|16 – 30 Credits
|31 – 45 Credits
|46 – 63 Credits
|64 – or More Credits
If are currently on academic jeopardy (warning or probation), you are only allowed to register for 13 credits for next semester.
Regular matriculated students who are on academic warning and do not raise their CGPA to 2.000 after one semester will be placed on academic probation and will be granted one semester to raise the CGPA to the required level. While on academic probation, the student may not register for more than 13 credits. Furthermore, students on academic probation are not eligible to compete or practice in intercollegiate athletics and may not enroll in off-campus internships.
Students who are on academic probation and who fail to raise their CGPA to the required level and who have a GPA of less than 2.200 for the semester on probation will be suspended from the university for a period of one calendar year. At the end of that year, the student will be eligible for readmission in Academic Probation  status. Academic suspension is not subject to appeal. The student will be allowed to register for no more than six credits per semester during the suspension year.
Students returning from academic suspension who fail to maintain a GPA of 2.200 or better each semester until their cumulative GPA has risen to the required level will be dismissed from the university for academic failure. At this time, they have the right to appeal to the Admissions Appeals Committee.
A student who has been dismissed from the university for academic failure may appeal the dismissal by submitting a letter to the Admissions Appeals Committee. This letter must include why the student was unsuccessful in previous academic experiences and why he/she feels that future academic endeavors will be successful. The committee will review the letter, review the academic record, and conduct an interview with the student, and then either uphold the dismissal or approve a reinstatement under stipulated conditions.
Transfer credits will not be counted in determining academic jeopardy for a transfer student’s first semester on campus. That is, transfer students will not be in academic jeopardy following their first semester on campus unless their grade point average is below 2.000.
