[correction to the graduation requirements]

Courses can change year-to-year, (for example, in credit hours or in prerequisites) or be discontinued as a result of curricular review.  Therefore, students are eligible for more recent catalog years if it is to their benefit.  Students must consult with their advisor prior to making changes in their catalog year and receive approval from their academic dean.  In addition, students who change majors will be governed by the requirements at the time of acceptance into their new major without change of General Education requirements except as specified by the new major. Due to program accreditation requirements, students in certain majors may not have this option. Added Language

A minor consists of at least 18 hours, with a minimum of eight (8) hours above the introductory level.  A minor is based in a discipline and thus is defined by each academic school and department.  Any student may declare a minor; however, a minor should be considered by students who want to build depth in a subfield complementary to their major, pursue personal interests, satisfy intellectual curiosity, or enhance their opportunities for employment or for admission to graduate or professional schools. 

  1. A student is limited to two minors.
  2. When taking two minors, at least half of the courses must be counted exclusively for each minor and may not be double-counted.
  3. A student must complete a minimum of six credits of course work exclusive to the minor.
  4. At least 50% of the credits applied toward the minor must be completed at Bethune-Cookman University.
  5. A student who wishes to pursue a minor should do so by the beginning of the senior year.
  6. A student must maintain a 2.0 GPA for the coursework used to obtain a minor.

Students who are interested in declaring, changing, or dropping a minor should consult with an appropriate academic advisor to complete the process.

[clarification of academic progress policy]

Academic Standing

Academic standing provides the University with a measure of academic progress. It aids the University in identification of students in academic difficulty who may need additional assistance. A student’s academic standing determines eligibility for enrollment and participation in extra-curricular activities. Academic standing is separate from financial aid eligibility and does not impact judicial standing.

Undergraduate student academic standing is determined by both cumulative grade point average (CGPA) and progress towards degree.

  • Cumulative GPA. A minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.00 is required for good academic standing.
  • Progress toward degree. A student must successfully complete (with a grade of A, B, C, D or S) a minimum of 67% of all attempted credit hours each semester to remain in good academic standing. Grades of F, U, W, I, DR, NR, NG and WD do not demonstrate successful course completion.

Bethune-Cookman University defines the following four levels of undergraduate academic standing for degree-seeking students:

  • Good academic standing -Students in good academic standing are academically eligible for all of the rights and privileges of an undergraduate student at Bethune-Cookman University. A student is in good academic standing if s/he has a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or higher and has completed 67% of credit hours attempted for the semester.
  • Academic warning - Students on academic warning are able to continue enrollment, however, they are not generally eligible for extra-curricular activities (please see specific criteria for the activity) and are required to develop an academic plan with their Success Coach or academic advisor. Students who do not meet both criteria for good academic standing in a given semester (including summer) will have the status of “academic warning” for the following fall or spring semester.
  • Academic probation - Students on academic probation are able to continue enrollment, however, they are not eligible for extra-curricular activities. These students must continue to follow the academic plan developed while on academic warning, and must take and pass a minimum of 12 credit hours in the following semester (excluding summer). A student who is on academic warning and fails to meet the criteria for good academic standing in a given semester (including summer) will have the status of “academic probation” for the following fall or spring semester.
  • Academic dismissal - Students who are academically dismissed from the University may not enroll at Bethune-Cookman University for the following fall or spring semester. After one semester of absence (excluding summer), an academically dismissed student may apply for re-admission to the University.

Students will be reviewed for academic progress at the end of each semester. If after one semester of review a student is not meeting the minimum academic standards required, s/he will be placed on academic warning. If after two consecutive semesters of review, a student is not meeting the minimum academic standards required, s/he will be placed on academic probation. The student is not academically dismissed from the University, and instead has a last opportunity to recover and meet the minimum academic standards. If after three consecutive semesters a student is not meeting the minimum academic progress standards, s/he will be academically dismissed from the University for one fall or spring semester. The table below provides an outline of undergraduate academic status
