Graduation Requirements for Aviation Technology
For all aviation technology majors, the following academic regulations apply in addition to university regulations:
1. A minimum GPA of 2.5 must be maintained in major required classes. University Studies courses are not included in this GPA calculation.
2. No more than 6 credits of D or D+ credit may be applied toward meeting graduation requirements in major required classes.
3. The P-D-F grading option may not be used in required courses. (The P-D-F grading option is approved for University Studies courses.)
4. The academic regulations listed above (1-3) apply to required coursework and any technology/math/science/business course which could be used to satisfy graduation requirements for the chosen degree. That is, once a student completes a particular technical elective, it becomes a required course for that student.
5. Students in violation of departmental or college academic regulations, no longer eligible for graduation, or not making satisfactory progress toward a degree will have a registration hold placed on their record.
a. Students will be placed on probation (registration hold) if they
i. have more than 6 credits of D credit (see item 2 above), or
ii. have a major GPA of less than 2.5 (see item 1 above)
b. The hold remains until they improve their standing by repeating classes to reduce the number of D credits to 6 or less, and/or by raising their GPA above 2.5. Students must meet with their advisor to have the hold removed.
6. FAA regulations require students to earn a 70% or higher score to pass each course. To obtain the certification to test for Airframe and Powerplant licenses, students must meet that standard in each FAA part 147 required course.
