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 scholastic attainment standards.

Once placed on probation, a student must show satisfactory academic improvement by the end of the next semester or summer session, regardless of the number of hours earned or attempted, or the student will be subject to dismissal.

If a student is retained for a second probation term, he or she must make up the GPA deficiency in the next major semester or be subject to dismissal for academic deficiency.

A student on academic probation is required to enroll in and successfully complete EDLS 100: Learning Strategies, during the next major semester if the student has not already successfully completed the course.

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, including required enrollment in Learning Strategies, 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.
