Early College Online General Information

Academic Standing

  • Students must maintain a minimum SUU GPA of 2.0 to continue taking ECO classes.
  • If a student falls below 2.0 it can affect their applications to universities as a regular student, or the status of the incoming student (for example, a student may be put on probation, not accepted, or have a scholarship revoked).
  • To be reinstated into the program after falling below a 2.0 GPA a student will have to coordinate with SUU Academic Recovery.
  • SUU policies pertaining to academic honesty and plagiarism apply to ECO students – if a student is caught plagiarizing it is grounds for failing the course and/or being excused from the program.



Withdrawing from an Early College On-line Course

  • If a student chooses to drop a course, they are responsible for dropping by the published deadlines.
  • The penalties associated with withdrawing from a college course after the deadlines include: future financial aid eligibility and low GPA. Please contact our office earlycollegeonline@suu.edu before withdrawing from a course.
  • If a student drops the course after the deadline they will receive a grade of "W". This counts towards their completion rate (number of courses completed over number of courses attempted). Financial aid requires a 70% completion rate. Students (with parents) must be counseled before a student may withdraw from a course after the "Drop without a W" deadline.
  • If a student withdraws from a course without the ECO office at SUU, they are responsible for all consequences.
  • An Unofficial Withdrawal (UW) affects a student's GPA the same as an F. This occurs when a student does not officially drop the course, but discontinues attendance and coursework.
