Academic Eligibility for Student Organizations Policy

The University of Michigan-Dearborn Office of Student Life strives to ensure academic excellence and degree attainment for all students. In order to maintain active membership and hold a leadership role, students must have and maintain a cumulative minimum grade point average of 2.5. Leadership positions include any and all membership roles in an organization (executive officers, minor officers, committee chairs, etc.) The Office of Student Life reserves the right to consider extenuating circumstances when making final decisions regarding eligibility.

Students in leadership positions must remain in compliance with the university’s Non-Academic Code of Conduct. 

Organizations may have stricter academic standards than those set by the Office of Student Life. Such student organizational academic eligibility expectations for active membership should be outlined in their approved constitutions.

The Office of Student Life will notify organization presidents and advisors of the names of all individuals within the organization who have been declared inactive members or are on probation based on their academic performance. Students' grade point averages will not be disclosed due to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
