Progress Evaluation

Academic Process

The Regental system recognizes the importance of monitoring the academic progress of students and will work with SDSU to ensure that students who are experiencing difficulties are offered advice, assistance, and support services that are available at SDSU. At the end of the Fall and Summer Terms, SDSU will identify students who could benefit from additional support as well as students who have made strong academic progress. Students identified in these categories will be placed on one of three lists to assist with communication and support. The lists include:   

1.  Academic Watch:

  • Students in good academic standing who achieve a Cumulative GPA less than Minimum Progression Standards at the end of the Fall or Summer.
  • Students on academic probation who achieve a Term GPA that meets Minimum Progression Standards but have a Cumulative GPA less than Minimum Progression Standards at the end of Fall or Summer Term.

2.  Academic Warning – Students on academic probation who achieve a Term or Cumulative GPA less than Minimum Progression Standards at the end of the Fall or Summer Term.

3.  Academic Improvement – Students on academic probation who achieve a Term or Cumulative GPA greater than or equal to Minimum Progression Standards at the end of the Fall or Summer Term.

Completed CreditsMinimum Progression Standard
45 or moreGreater than or equal to 2.0
Less than 45Greater than or equal to 1.8

Students placed on the Academic Watch or Academic Warning lists will receive communication from the Academic Success and Recovery Program (ASRP) about support options.

Students who are in good academic standing, and meet or exceed Minimum Progression Standards, will not be placed on any of the three lists. Congratulations to these students for continuing with their academic progress!

Any student who feels the need for support is encouraged to contact ASRP at SDSU.academicsuccess@sdstate.edu or 605-688-4153 with questions.
