A student may remain academically eligible to continue coursework in the department’s academic concentrations by maintaining a minimum GPA of 2.00 or the equivalent of a letter grade of C. Any student receiving a single C-, D, F, or U grade in a course with an ASCI or FSCI prefix that is required for graduation in an Aviation Management or Flight Science concentration or minor will be required to repeat the course in which the C-, D, F, or U grade was received. If the course is a prerequisite to another course in the Aviation Management or Flight Science concentration, the student will be required to repeat the course in which the C-, D, F, or U grade was received. The student will not be allowed to progress into the subsequent course until a grade of C is achieved in the prerequisite course.
Students enrolled in the Flight Science minor are allowed two (2) attempts to earn a grade of C or better in any of the flight courses that are part of the academic concentration. A student receiving a C-, D, F, or U grade in a repeated course is subject to dismissal from the program.
Students enrolled in the Flight Science concentration or minor must maintain an overall GPA of 2.00 to maintain eligibility for flight training. If a student's GPA falls below 2.00, that student will not be eligible to enroll in a flight course in subsequent semesters until the student's GPA is at 2.00 or higher.
An appeal of a grade, progression in the concentration or minor, or dismissal from the concentration or minor may be made in accordance with the procedures outlined in the Department of Aviation Science Student Appeal Process, a copy of which can be obtained from the department chairperson or from the Parks College of Engineering, Aviation and Technology Office of the Dean.
Students should be aware that situations such as those described above could jeopardize one’s planned graduation date due to the manner in which courses are scheduled each academic year.
