School of Engineering Undergraduate Academic Standards
To continue as a major in the School of Engineering, a student must achieve a 2.3 cumulative grade-point average at the end of the semester in which thirty cumulative credits have been attempted. Note that this academic standard is more stringent than that of the rest of the College or University as a whole. No more than three repeated course enrollments are allowed during this thirty-credit period. In the case of transfer students, applicable transfer credits will be included in determining the thirty credits, but grades in these courses will not be included in the grade-point average.
Students who receive a cumulative or semester grade-point average of less than 2.3 will be placed on trial. Students who have failed half their course credits for any semester, or who have had two successive semester averages below 2.3, or three successive semesters in which their cumulative grade-point average falls below 2.3, are eligible for dismissal.
To receive a degree, students must have a minimum cumulative average of 2.3. Students must complete thirty of the last forty-five hours of credit in residence at UVM as matriculated students in the College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences. Additional degree requirements are specified for each major.
No more than one grade of D, D+, or D- will be acceptable in any engineering courses. Requirements in each program are specified by the respective program curriculum committees.
A course may not be taken for credit if it is a prerequisite to one for which credit has already been granted, except by permission of the student's advisor.
