Academic Standing

Good Standing

In order to remain in good academic standing, you must maintain a cumulative 2.00 Grade Point Average (GPA).

Academic Probation

If your cumulative GPA drops below 2.00, you will be placed on academic probation. Students who are on academic probation may only enroll in up to 15 credits per semester while on probation. In order to return to good standing from probation, you must improve your cumulative GPA to 2.00 or above. In addition, students on probation must earn a GPA of at least 2.00 each semester until their cumulative GPA reaches a 2.0. You may appeal the restrictions or your probation if you feel like you have extenuating circumstances by filling out this form and meeting with the Executive Director of Student Success (click here to schedule an appointment).

Academic Suspension

If you on probation and fail to meet the minimum standard for academic progress, you will be placed on academic suspension.  If you are suspended once, you will not be allowed to attend Montana Tech for one semester. If you are suspended more than once, you will not be allowed to attend Montana Tech for one ear and you must receive the approval of the Academic Standards Committee for readmission. Appeals for readmission must be submitted one week before classes begin in order to be considered and can be initiated by filling out this form.  Once you return to Montana Tech, you will remain on probation until you earn a 2.00 cumulative GPA.

You can use a GPA calculator to figure out how many semesters it will take you to get back in good standing. Your cumulative and your semester GPA are both available to view in Oredigger Web. In addition, it is strongly encouraged to meet with your academic advisor and/or the Academic Success Coach in order to develop a plan to return to good academic standing.
