Academic Standing Answers

Academic Standing AnswersBeginning with the 2017-2018 academic year, Texas Tech University adopted a new Academic Standing Policy. Texas Tech University is committed to student success and assisting students in being accountable for engaging in the educational process. Academic Standing is determined upon the completion of the academic terms (fall, spring, summer) and is based on both current and prior academic performance. Academic Standing can be an important indicator of progress and is used to assist with determining appropriate steps to help a student achieve educational goals.
