Academic Standing


Fort Valley State University requires reasonable academic progress of its students. Students are considered to be in good academic standing if they maintain a minimum 2.0 GPA. When a student’s academic standing approaches standards that are not acceptable for continued enrollment, i.e., a cumulative GPA of less than 2.0, a warning notice of Academic Probation will be placed on the student’s academic record.
