A cumulative grade-point average of 2.00 is required for the successful completion of all degree and certificate programs. This level of performance is considered as satisfactory progress while undertaking any academic program.

Any student who falls below a total 2.00 National Park College grade-point average after the first semester will be placed on academic probation by the Registrar for the next semester. A total 2.00 National Park College grade-point average must be made to be removed from probation. At the end of two semesters on probation, if improvement has not been shown, students will automatically be restricted to two courses for the next semester.

Any student who falls below a total 1.00 National Park College grade-point average after two semesters will be automatically suspended for the next semester. Upon readmittance, the student will be restricted to no more than two courses. These courses will be determined after a conference with a counselor or academic advisor.

Transfer students are subject to the same probationary requirements. Although all course work and grades earned at another institution will be recorded on the National Park College transcript, the total National Park College grade-point average will be determined only by the grades earned while attending National Park College.
