Academic Reinstatement

Washington State University expects students to maintain academic standards of excellence and make satisfactory academic progress toward their degree objectives.  Undergraduate students are in good academic standing if both their current WSU semester and cumulative grade point averages are 2.00 or above, and/or they are eligible to be enrolled. Students not meeting the criteria above are considered academically deficient.
