Second Class Honors
Students will be awarded second class honors if they meet all the above requirements with the exception of earning a cumulative GPA between 3.25 and 3.49.


Probation
All MUIC students will be classified into
(1) regular students or
(2) students on probation.

The classification will start at the end of the student’s third trimester of the first academic year and will occur at the end of every trimester when the student enters the second year and will continue until graduation.

The classifications of a student’s status are as follows:
Normal Status Students with a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or higher
Probation Type 1
Students with a cumulative GPA of 1.50 or higher but less than 1.80

Probation Type 2
Students with a cumulative GPA of 1.80 or higher but less than 2.00

Students will be removed from probation when the student’s cumulative GPA is 2.00 or higher. Failure to achieve the minimum GPA standard during the required period will result in dismissal.
