To assist students in maintaining satisfactory progress, Iowa State University has adopted academic standards designed to provide early identification of those who are experiencing academic difficulty, and to provide timely intervention through academic advising and academic support programs.

Academic standing at Iowa State University is dependent upon the total number of credits you have attempted or earned, your semester grade-point average (GPA), your cumulative ISU GPA, and your transfer GPA (if below 2.00).
