Policy Procedures

Earning a very low GPA in the first semester usually indicates that a student is not prepared for academic success at a four-year university. For this reason, students in their first semester at Brockport (both freshmen and transfers) will be academically dismissed without a probationary semester if they earn less than a 1.0 GPA (D average). Such students are often advised to gain maturity by attending a community university for at least a year before reapplying to Brockport or another four-year university. Appeal rights for such students are the same as for other dismissed students.
