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 considered to be making academic progress if s/he maintains a grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or higher.  A student’s academic status is determined by the student’s cumulative GPA AND the number of credit hours earned compared to the number attempted on the charts below. These standards will not apply until a student has attempted a minimum of twelve (12) credit hours.
