You can not meet any of these Continuance Standards with Transfer, Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) credits. Only W&M credits count, although, as specified by regulations in the Catalog, these credits may count toward 120 credits required for graduation and toward general education and concentration requirements.

Transfer students and freshmen begin at the first semester in the list above. An unclassified student enrolled fall 1999 or later for 12 or more academic hours must meet the Continuance Standards applicable to the regularly enrolled student.

If your QPA falls below 2.0 during any semester, you will receive a warning letter from the Office of the Dean of Students.If your academic work falls below the minimum QPA and/or earned credit Continuance Standards, you will be on probation for the following semester.

You can petition the Committee on Academic Status for individual exceptions to the above Continuance Standards.
