What is Academic Standing?
Academic Standing is the status that a student earns from their educational studies at an institution of higher education. Academic Standing at UNC Charlotte is calculated at the end of the fall and spring semesters (e.g. summer sessions are excluded). Academic Standing at UNC Charlotte is noted on the student's permanent academic record for each semester.
How is Academic Standing calculated?
UNC Charlotte looks at several items when determining Academic Standing. Cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) is the calculated overall grade average that a student earns at the end of each term. The current term (or semester) GPA is the calculated grade average that a student earns at the end of a specific term (e.g. Spring, Summer and Fall). Both GPAs are used to calculate Academic Standing at the end of the fall and spring semesters.
Students can use the GPA Calculator to help determine their cumulative and current GPA using the GPA Calculator.
