Good academic standing requires a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better. For the Thomas Harriot College of Arts & Sciences, you must have a 2.00 GPA overall and you must earn a 2.00 in your MAJOR courses. Academic Eligibility Standards
Starfish Starfish is an early alert and connection tool used by ECU to support student academic success ECU professors may send academic progress email notification to students throughout the semester. Through Starfish, faculty can email kudos, academic difficulty, and absence related messages to students’ ECU email account. If you receive an academic difficulty or absence notification, please take action: To set up your Starfish profile, log in to Blackboard, click on Starfish tab, and then click on your name in the upper right-hand corner. You will be able to access Starfish after August 12, 2013. Meet with your instructor Meet with your advisor Utilize tutoring services Improve study habits Attend all classes Take action!!!
The number of semester hours you have upon entering ECU will determine how many drops you are allotted until graduation. Most Entering Freshmen 0-29 hours = 4 drops 30-59 hours = 3 drops (this will affect students who are bringing in a lot of AP credit ) 60-89 hours = 2 drops 90 + hours = 1 drop You can adjust your schedule all summer (using registration pin) and it will NOT count as a drop. You can change your schedule through the first 5 days of class (using registration pin) and it will NOT count as a drop (last day for “free drop” August 26, 2013 by 5:00 pm). Drops are only counted after the first 5 days of class through the 50% mark of the semester (Your registration pin stops working and you must see advisor to drop course ) The LAST DAY to drop a class for this Fall is October 15, 2013 by 5:00 pm (you can NOT drop a course after this date) Course Drops Be wise about dropping a course. Dropping below full time may affect financial aid as well as insurance. If you feel like you are having difficulty, go see your professor, seek help tutoring, and consult your advisor!
