The University at Albany requires that you maintain a cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.00 and an average of 2.00 in the major and the minor to earn a bachelor’s degree.
The GPA is an important indicator of your ability to achieve a bachelor’s degree. The following policies are in effect for undergraduate students whose performance indicates that they are in danger of failing to meet the conditions necessary to earn a degree.
Please refer to academic standing policies for more information.
- Make a schedule for yourself: write down all appointments, due dates, exam dates, study blocks, tutoring, etc.
- Prioritize your coursework: which due dates are first? which assignments will take the longest?
- Work on one thing at a time: trying to juggle more than one task at a time can get hectic.
- Create a physical space to do your work: designating a space where you work will help your brain focus on academics.
- Talk to your Academic Advisor: they can help you if you're dealing with stress or are feeling overwhelmed.
- Keep in contact with people who are important to you such as, friends, classmates and mentors: taking a break from your work has been found to be beneficial in promoting positive wellbeing and reducing stress.
- Utilize student support services on campus: these services are available to help you succeed at the University at Albany.
- Pay attention to when assignments are due: have due dates changed? put them on a calendar in front of your workspace to remind yourself.
- Check Blackboard consistently: make this a daily habit, whether something is due or not.
- Check your email regularly: professors, advisors and the University will send you updates you don’t want to miss.
