Pace Promise Graduating in four years is often a top priority for both students and families as they make decisions about a college education. Pace University is committed to making it possible for full-time students to complete their desired undergraduate degree within four calendar years following the date of their initial enrollment for first-year courses at Pace.* If a student… 1. is academically qualified for admission and chooses a major by the beginning of the sophomore year** 2. completes required academic planning with their academic advisor on a semester basis. 3. maintains a 2.0 or higher (as required by the major) grade point average. 4. Each semester, registers as a full-time student at the specified registration time, and enrolls in the requisite number and appropriate sequence of courses as indicated on the appropriate major worksheet. 5. satisfies and complies with governmental and Pace University eligibility requirements and financial, academic and disciplinary standards, policies, regulations and procedures.*** Pace then promises… 1. That a student can complete all the requirements for his or her chosen undergraduate degree in four years without attending summer school. This may include taking some evening courses. 2. To open closed courses and add additional sections when needed to maintain normal academic progress. 3. To provide quality academic advising. *Please be advised that transfer students (students seeking to transfer in 25 or more credits) are not eligible to participate in this plan. ** Students pursuing majors in the following disciplines must take the appropriate introductory level courses during their first year of enrollment in order to be able to choose a major by the beginning of the sophomore year: Art (BS); Biology (BS); Biochemistry; Chemistry; Forensic Science; Language, Culture and World Trade; Medical Technology; Modern Languages and Cultures; Nursing; Physician Assistant; Physics; Teaching Language to Adolescents (Secondary Ed. degree); Theater. *** Students who declare or change their major later than the start of their sophomore year, students who receive any failing grades, students who are required to take developmental courses, and students who fail to maintain normal academic progress may lose their eligibility to continue participating in this plan.
