What is Academic Standing and Why is it Important?
At the close of each semester, your academic record will be reviewed to verify your semester and cumulative grade point average in order to determine your academic standing. Academic standing is determined using your semester grade point average (GPA). The three levels of academic standing and how they are determined are as follows:
- Academic Good Standing
A student is considered in academic good standing if making satisfactory grades. You must earn and maintain a GPA of 2.0 (C average) to be in this category.
- Academic Probation
The purpose of academic probation is to alert the student to a lack of academic progress and potential future consequences if improvements are not made in the current semester. A student is placed on academic probation when the cumulative GPA falls below a 2.0.

- Academic Suspension
If a student fails to improve their GPA to a 2.0 or higher during the semester they are on academic probation, they are suspended.
Being placed on academic suspension means you cannot return to Casper College during the following semester. Additionally, you will need to petition to return when you are ready.
