-Accoutrements in dormitory rooms
-Company assignment – Students who lose Class Status are moved to another company.
D. Leadership Opportunities

II. CQPR - “Avoid the F”
A. Maintains higher CQPR for Good Standing/Retention
B. 2.0 required for Commercial Shipping/Leadership positions
C. May affect eligibility to participate in varsity athletics
D. Scholarship Committee uses CQPR as first criteria – works from top down.
III. Credits completed
A. 12 credits required for Full-Time Status
1. Private Health Insurance may require full-time status
B. Financial Aid
1. Maintenance of Effort – must complete a minimum # of credits per Federal guidelines.
2. Less than Full-Time most likely will lose all financial aid.

C. Academic Board
-Board reviews transcripts and takes into account # of withdrawals and lack of progress as well as CQPR, SQPR, # of failures and Probationary status.
-It is disappointing to see students withdraw after only two weeks of class. This demonstrates a lack of self-confidence and determination rather than a lack of aptitude.
