Remaining in Good Standing

At the end of each semester, the Associate Dean and the Coordinator of Student Success and Retention review the academic standing of students in the Honors College. Students must achieve a 3.30 GPA to graduate from the Honors College.

Students are placed on caution status based on their overall GPAs at the end of each academic year, specifically 

  • If their GPAs are between 2.70 and 3.00 at the end of their first year 
  • If their GPAs are between 3.00 and 3.15 at the end of their second year
  • If 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 considered 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 address) and posted on their MaineStreet Message Center. Students have the opportunity to appeal the academic action and directions for an appeal are included in the notification. Appeals must be received by the deadline indicated in the notification to be considered,

GPA calculators are available on the Honors College website and are helpful tools in assessing your current and future academic standing.
