The academic credit unit used by the University is the Trimester hour
Students are required to achieve no less than a C average for the entire course of their studies. Students falling below a C average in any given semester will be placed upon academic probation. Two consecutive semesters of academic probation may result in being dropped from the program. Class attendance is mandatory under the “Trimester hour” system of credit. Missing two or more classes of any course is cause for being placed on academic probation..
