Satisfactory Academic Standing is achieved and maintained when a student is meeting all of the following academic standards in any given semester:
BYU—Idaho has academic standards to help students safeguard the sacred church resources expended in their behalf. Academic standards are also the university's way to hold students accountable for the mastery of educational curriculum deemed essential for a degree from BYU—Idaho.
Most colleges and universities around the U.S. have a minimum GPA standard as well as some version of SAP (Satisfactory Academic Progress) requirement for students enrolled in their University.
Yes. Effective Fall Semester 2010; BYU—Idaho introduced Academic Warning and stipulated that all students, regardless of the standard that they do not meet, will go from Satisfactory Standing to Academic Warning on their first infraction. This policy is not retroactive. Students that received academic discipline prior to Fall Semester 2010 and have continued their education at BYU—Idaho do not start over on Academic Warning. Students who have received academic discipline under the previous academic standards policy should contact Student Records and Registration to understand how the new policy will apply to them.
Additionally, students can no longer be placed on Academic Suspension for SAP alone. If a student fails to maintain SAP (Satisfactory Academic Progress) and is at risk for Academic Suspension, failure to maintain SAP must also be coupled with a semester GPA below 2.0 to be placed on Academic Suspension.
