Math Requirements

Aviation majors are required to complete a math course every semester until the Math 1743 requirement is fulfilled. Failure to comply with this policy will lead to the student being stopped-out of the Aviation Department and thus having to change their major.

Grade Point Averages

To be eligible for graduation, aviation majors must have earned a minimum of 2.25 in all retention grade point averages. While 2.25 is the minimum GPA allowed for graduation, the Aviation Department urges students to strive for at least a 3.00 GPA to maximize their competitiveness within the aviation industry after their degree completion.

NOTE: Students earning the general business minor must have a minimum minor GPA and an upper division business minor GPA of a 2.50.

Stop-out Process

All Aviation Majors are required to consistently:

    • Maintain a minimum 2.25 OU Retention GPA
    • Maintain a minimum 2.25 Combined Retention GPA
    • Comply with specific Aviation Department and FAA rules
    • Make progress each semester towards their major requirements and degree completion

Students who violate any of these mandatory academic and/or professional standards will be stopped-out of the department and must change their major. Stopped-Out students will not be allowed to return to the Aviation Department or enroll in aviation courses without first applying for readmission.

Readmission into the program is unlikely until the student has:

    • Earned a 3.50 GPA (at least twelve credit hours) in the next semester
    • Earned two consecutive semesters of a 3.00 GPA (in at least twelve credit hours each semester)
    • Raised their OU GPA to a minimum of a 2.25 GPA

While stopped-out of the Aviation Department, students cannot have earned a “D” or “F” in any math, science or business course. It is strongly recommended students complete courses in these fields if they wish to be readmitted to the program.

NOTE: Once a student has been stopped-out twice, they must wait three years to apply for readmission to the Aviation Department.
