The University has academic classifications based on grade point average (GPA) to help staff, faculty, and students determine academic progress. Academic Advisors use this standing when helping you make decisions about enrollment and progress towards your degree. Students may be in Good, Caution, Warning, or Pause Standing. For details on each of these terms as well as instructions on returning to NAU through Reinstatement after an Academic Pause review the Academic Standing Policy.
