Fall Update

At SPS this fall, all courses, other than pre-established online courses, will be offered face-to-face in our New York City classrooms. Some of these face-to-face courses will be offered in the HyFlex format to ensure that all of our students can make progress toward their degree requirements, if faced with delays due to student visas or vaccination effectiveness wait times.

Satisfactory Academic Progress

A student’s academic progress is considered to be satisfactory when a student maintains at least the minimum grade point average required for their program, completes a minimum of 67% of their total attempted credits, and completes their program within the maximum time frame of their respective program.

The academic progress of each student is reviewed shortly after the end of each term. After the review of records has been completed, students will be alerted to any identified deficiencies and told of the consequences of failure to remedy the deficiencies.

After one term of unsatisfactory progress, if a student has a second term of unsatisfactory progress, the student is subject to dismissal from the academic program and the School of Professional Studies. Students earning grades of D or F in a term may also be dismissed. All decisions to dismiss for academic reasons are subject to appeal. A transcript notation will be made when students are expelled or dismissed from the School of Professional Studies.
