- Grade Requirements: To receive a Systems Engineering & Sustainable Engineering Certificate the student must complete all courses in the certificate program with a grade of “C” or higher (a grade of “C-” is not acceptable).
- Time Limit: A student is expected to complete all work within five semesters from the date of first enrollment in the certificate program. A student who fails to complete requirements within five semesters may be withdrawn and required to apply for readmission.

- is making satisfactory progress toward the completion of certificate requirements and is within
the time limits of the program, including approved extensions
- is demonstrating an ability to succeed in the program; and
- has a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 (B) or better
Unsatisfactory Academic Standing
The program will place a notation of “below minimum academic requirements” on the academic record
at the end of the term in which a student’s cumulative GPA falls below a 3.0. The program may decide
whether unsatisfactory academic standing may be a basis for placing a student on academic probation.
A student with unsatisfactory academic standing will not be advanced and will not be awarded a
Upon the recommendation of the program director, a student will be given an opportunity to correct
the academic deficiency and return to satisfactory academic standing.
A student with unsatisfactory academic standing must provide documentation including: reasons for the
poor academic record; explain how conditions that produced this performance have changed; and
present specific plans for improvement. A student whose cumulative GPA falls below a 3.0, is not
making satisfactory progress toward the degree, and is failing to succeed in the plan of studies, may be
denied permission to register, required to withdraw, or dismissed from the program.
