Academic Standing + Dismissal

In order to remain in good academic standing, students must earn a minimum semester GPA of 2.0 and a cumulative GPA of 2.0. Students who do not achieve a semester GPA of at least 2.0 will be placed on Academic Probation. They will be required to meet regularly with an adviser and adhere to a learning contract. Students on Academic Probation may not request an Incomplete grade in any of their courses.

Students who do not achieve a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 are subject to dismissal. Students who earn a GPA of 1.00 or less in their first semester of enrollment will be dismissed from the Institute.

Students who are dismissed and who believe there are extenuating circumstances affecting their academic standing may appeal to the Vice President of Academic + Faculty Affairs, whose decision will be final. Appeals must be in writing and be received by the Vice President in accordance with the following deadlines: June 15 (for fall readmission) and January 3 (for spring readmission). It is highly recommended that students consult with the Director of Academic Services before filing an appeal.

Students who were academically dismissed from CIA may apply for readmission if they have successfully met the stipulations detailed within their dismissal letter. These may include, for instance, coursework at another institution or documentation from a medical professional of readiness to resume a full course of study. Questions about any of these requirements should be directed to the Director of Academic Services.

Academic Advising

The Academic Advising Staff is available Monday through Friday during normal business hours to assist you. Come visit our office in the Joseph McCullough Center, Room 120 (JMC 120).
