2. Successful Completion of the Program

At the end of every third quarter of the student’s program, students will be expected to complete a specified percentage of
attempted courses as described in the chart in section 4.

Attempted credits include the published number of credits for all courses for which the student receives a grade of A, A-,
B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, F, W, P, S, U, IPR, or AU while the student is enrolled in a program of study at NEIT (see
Academic Regulations in the Office of Teaching and Learning section of the catalog for further clarification of grades).
With the exception of remedial courses, all credits the student attempts are used in computing satisfactory progress,
including credits for repeated courses. The published number of credits for any course taken for non-credit, as well as
credits that a student transfers from another institution, are used in computing satisfactory progress.

When a student changes major, only credits for those courses that apply to the new program are counted as attempted
credits.

3. Qualitative Measure

At the end of every third quarter of a student’s program, students will be expected to maintain a minimum cumulative
grade point average (GPA) as described in the chart in section 4.

The cumulative grade point average is based on credits attempted in all courses which carry credit toward graduation.
Courses which carry grades of W, P, S, U, IPR, or AU, are not included in a student’s GPA. When a course is repeated,
only the higher grade is included in the cumulative grade point average. Credits that a student transfers from another
institution are not included in the student’s GPA.

The cumulative GPA for bachelor’s students and Master’s students includes all credits for courses taken in the associate
degree program at NEIT which carry credit toward graduation.
