Academic Eligibility

General Eligibility

Only full-time students are eligible to represent the College in extra-curricular or co-curricular activities. Academically, students must possess a cumulative quality point index of 1.80 after the first two semesters of their freshman year and 2.00 for all succeeding years and must be making satisfactory progress towards a degree.

Satisfactory progress is defined as the successful completion of 24 semester hours during the academic year (August 15 to August 15). 

Students who are ineligible academically to represent the College will regain their eligibility as soon as they attain a cumulative 2.00 quality point index.

Under ordinary circumstances, full-time transfer students become eligible to represent the College upon enrollment in Savannah State University as a full-time student. Once enrolled, transfer students must maintain the same academic standards established for all students.
