The academic status is based on the GPA of the student. Each student receives one of the following statuses according to their cumulative GPA.


Full time students are students who are taking a minimum of 12 credits per semester excluding the summer semesters. After the student has passed 20 credits and has received a GPA below 2, they will be set on probation and will have to refer to their adviser to register their courses. They will also be allowed to register only 14 credits. Moreover, if after completing 12 credits in his or her major courses and the student's average in the major courses is less than 2.00, the student will be placed on school Probation, regardless of his cumulative average. A student may be suspended from their major after 2 consecutive probation periods, leading them to a change of major request.

            A student suspended for academic deficiencies must petition the admission council for readmission. Each case will be studied on its own merit. Students readmitted will be placed on probation and will be given two semesters (excluding summer) to remove the probation.

Conditions for readmission:

1- Students must have had a GPA above 1.2 (students who had a GPA of 1.2 or less will not be readmitted).
2- The student must have spent at least one semester at another institution of higher learning and completed 12 credits with an average of "C" or above.
3- The student has spent one calendar year outside LIU with some work experience.

Students will not be readmitted after a 2nd suspension.

            A student can petition for readmission and the School concerned will decide upon approval or rejection of the petition.
