Academic Standards & Regulations

Herkimer College is ranked among the top 100 U.S. community colleges for student success due to our impressive graduation and transfer rates. We take academics very seriously and hold our students to high standards while giving them room to explore their interests and grow their knowledge, skills, and abilities.

A student is placed on academic probation when:

He or she has a cumulative grade point average (GPA) that does not reflect satisfactory progress, given the number of credit hours attempted. The following chart shows the GPA, based on attempted credits, resulting in academic probation:
