Policies for Academic Standing for Non-Matriculated Students

Persons Affected

Faculty, Staff, Students, Third-Parties

Procedures

  1. Students who are in good academic standing, may take a maximum or 12 credits each semester, unless approved by the Assistant Vice President for Academic Affairs or an Academic Dean.
  2. Good Academic Standing- A GPA of 2.0 or higher
  3. Academic Probation- students who fail to obtain a minimum grade point average of 2.0 in any particular semester will automatically be placed on academic probation.
  4. Academic Suspension- students who are on academic probation twice in succession (not including summer or winter intersession) are subject to suspension. Students who have been suspended for poor academic performance are not permitted to enroll at the college in any coursework for one academic semester (fall or spring) from the date of suspension.
  5. Appeal of Academic Suspension- Any student who has been suspended for academic reasons may appeal the decision to the Assistant Vice President for Academic Affairs by submitting a petition, in writing, requesting a review of the decision. The appeal should include supporting evidence such as medical explanations and changes in grades that might justify a reversal of academic suspension.
  6. Non-matriculated students wishing to continue non-matriculated status after their initial semester of enrollment will be required to submit official high school and/or college transcripts to the Admissions Office in order to maintain registration privileges for future semesters.
  7. Matriculation- students looking to matriculate into a degree program must file an application online at https://www.suny.edu/attend/. All official documentation must be sent the Admissions Office before a decision can be made. Please reference our Admissions requirements before applying. ** Any additional questions regarding non-matriculation, please contact the Registrar’s Office at (934) 420-2776 or via email at regoffice@farmingdale.edu.
