Academic Progress is assessed based on accumulated credits and GPA earned toward the program of study that student is enrolled in for that term. Therefore, a change of program would exclude credits and grades for courses that no longer count towards the new program and could throw the student out of progress. In moving from one program to another, the basis for calculating both accumulated credits and cumulative GPA is changed and may differ from the cum credits and GPA showing on the transcript. State guidance does specifically prohibit using change of program as a way of circumventing the C average requirement. A student who changes his or her major while receiving State aid may experience some difficulty in making the adjustment during the transition semester.
