Academic Probation

A student may be placed on academic probation after a major semester and after the Summer Session if his or her cumulative GPA fails to meet minimum GPA requirements.

Once placed on probation, a student must show satisfactory academic improvement by the end of the next term of enrollment (including summer sessions), regardless of the number of hours earned or attempted, or the student will be subject to academic dismissal.

  • If a student is retained for a second probation (continued academic probation) term, he or she must make up the GPA deficiency in the next major semester or will be subject to academic dismissal.
  • A student on academic probation may receive transfer credit for courses at another institution but is not normally eligible for cross-registration or leave of absence privileges.

The conditions of probation are intended to give students who are experiencing difficulties a further opportunity to demonstrate adequate performance and to provide assistance to students who have had significant problems interfering with their ability to study.
