Remaining in Good Standing
At the end of each semester, the Associate Dean and the Dean examine the academic records of students in the College.
Students are placed on caution status if: their GPAs are between 2.70 and 3.00 at the end of their first year; their GPAs are between 3.00 and 3.15 at the end of their second year; their GPAs are between 3.15 and 3.30 at the end of their third year. Students with GPAs below the lower limit of each range will be academically ineligible for the Honors College and will be separated from the College (unenrolled from Honors classes and taken off the Honors Plan).

Notices of academic action will be communicated to the student through electronic mail (using the student’s @maine.edu address) and/or USPS mail using the student’s permanent address on file with Student Records. Notice of separation actions will also be placed in the student’s MaineStreet Message Center. Separation status may be appealed in writing no more than 30 days after the action is communicated to the student.
