To qualify for a bachelor’s degree, a student must earn a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.00 (in addition to completing the studies prescribed for the degree sought). Students must also advance in their studies by successfully completing a minimum of 12 credits per semester. Students who fail to make satisfactory academic process are subject to review by the Academic Standing Committee. Those students may be placed on Academic Probation. In circumstances involving those students who have entered Villanova University through the Academic Advancement Program, satisfactory progress of the student will be determined by the Academic Standing Committee and/or Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Students. In the event that, due to poor high school preparation, additional time is necessary for the student to complete the requirements towards graduation, the student will be viewed as being in a five year program. Satisfactory progress will be viewed accordingly.
