Academic Standing and Dismissal

In order to continue in good academic standing, students in NNU's Master of Divinity and Master of Arts programs must maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5 and pass all courses in the program with a grade of 2.0 (C) or better. Students must re-enroll and pass any course with less than a 2.0 (C) in order for it to contribute to graduation requirements. Students may repeat a course once; those who do not pass a course on the second attempt may be academically dismissed from the program. 

Students with semester GPAs that fall below 2.5 for two consecutive semesters will be placed on academic probation. Students who are accepted provisionally because of a GPA below 2.5 must earn at least a 2.5 by the end of their first semester or they will be placed on academic probation. Students with a cumulative GPA below 2.5 are also subject to academic probation. Students who fail to maintain these standards may also be subject to academic dismissal from the program.
