Satisfactory Academic Progress Help

Minneapolis College Policy 4.13 requires that all students must meet satisfactory academic progress standards in order to attend classes, to remain eligible for financial aid, and to be considered in good academic standing.

Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards

If you have attempted 1 - 5 credits:

  • Your cumulative GPA* must be at least 1.00
  • Your cumulative credit completion rate* must be at least 0%

If you have attempted 6 - 12 credits:

  • Your cumulative GPA* must be at least 1.50
  • Your cumulative credit completion rate* must be at least 50%

If you have attempted 13 or more credits:

  • Your cumulative GPA* must be at least 2.00
  • Your cumulative credit completion rate* must be at least 66.67%

*A student's cumulative GPA is calculated using Minneapolis College coursework only. Cumulative completion rate is calculated by dividing all earned credits by all attempted credits, including transfer coursework. 

  • The first semester in which you do not meet these standards, you will be placed on academic and financial aid warning. 
  • The second semester in which you do not meet these standards, you will be placed on academic and financial aid suspension.
