Academic Probation

A student will be placed on academic probation if he/she  fails to earn a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.00 at the end of the  semester. Students are expected to be aware of their academic standing at all times and are responsible for knowing whether or not they are on academic probation.

Terms of Academic Probation:

A. Freshmen students placed on academic probation are required to enroll in and pass the Academic Skills Course. Failure to participate in this course will result in immediate academic suspension.

B. Students on academic probation must earn a minimum 2.00 semester GPA each subsequent semester to be eligible to continue to enroll until good academic standing is restored. In consultation with their academic advisor or academic advising unit, students on academic probation must develop an academic plan of action for each semester they are on academic probation. The student, the academic advisor, the academic unit’s retention coordinator and the Office of Enrollment Management will receive copies of the academic plan of action for information purposes and for monitoring compliance.

C. Students on academic probation shall be limited to a maximum of 15 credit hours per semester in the fall and spring semesters. Students on academic probation may enroll in a maximum of 7 credit hours per session during  summer school. Students who were placed on academic probation at the end of the spring semester may elect to attend one or more of the summer sessions. The student’s probationary status will be removed, if he/she improves their cumulative GPA to 2.00 or above by completing coursework during the summer session. A student who completes coursework during the summer session and fails to earn a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.00 will be placed on academic suspension.

D. Students on academic probation must consult with their academic advisor in choosing classes and credit hour loads.

Students who are placed on academic probation and, as defined by the curriculum of the student’s major, fail to meet the minimum hours earned towards their declared major or earn a minimum semester GPA of 2.00 will be placed on academic suspension.
