Academic Probation and Suspension

Academic Warning, Probation, and Suspension Policy

Students must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA (grade point average) of 2.00 to maintain satisfactory academic progress.

There are no new students being placed on Academic Warning. Students previously placed on academic warning will remain on warning as long as their semester GPA is 2.00 or higher and their cumulative GPA is less than 2.00. Credit hours are not limited. Students on warning will be restricted from web registration. Students will be required to meet with their advisor to review academic probation/suspension policies and limitations on enrollment. Students will be considered in good standing when their cumulative GPA is 2.00 or higher. Students previously placed on academic warning and not achieving both a 2.00 semester and cumulative GPA will be placed on academic probation.

Students will be placed on academic probation when their cumulative GPA falls below 2.00 at the close of the fall, spring, or combined summer terms. Students will remain on academic probation as long as their semester GPA is 2.00 or higher and cumulative GPA is less than 2.00. Students on probation will be restricted from web registration. Students will be required to meet with their advisor to review academic probation/suspension policies and limitations on enrollment. Students will be considered in good standing when their cumulative GPA is 2.00 or higher.

New or returning students who have recently transferred from another institution and have a cumulative GPA below 2.0 must appeal for admission. If admission is granted, they will enter on probation (AT). Students with this standing may have specific enrollment requirements and must make a 2.0 GPA their first semester or be moved to AB suspension (see below). Students on AT probation will be restricted from web registration.

Students will be placed on academic suspension if, while on academic probation, they do not achieve both a 2.00 semester and cumulative 2.00 GPA at the close of the fall, spring, or combined summer terms. Students allowed to return from suspension are restricted from web registration. Students on academic suspension are required to meet with their advisor to discuss academic probation/suspension policies and limitations on enrollment.

If suspended the following guidelines will apply:

First Suspension (A1)

  • Option 1 - Students may sit out one major term, fall or spring, and then return without appeal.
  • Option 2 - Students may register in the following major term for a maximum of 13 credit hours to include SAS 0201 Bridge to Success Seminar or in the following summer term for a maximum of 4 credit hours to include SAS 0201 Bridge to Success Seminar.
    • AB Suspension - If the student does not make a 2.00 semester GPA and pass the SAS 0201 with a grade of C or better, the student will be suspended for one major term and cannot appeal. Students who enter on AT probation and who do not make a semester GPA of 2.0 will also be suspended for one major term and cannot appeal.

Second Suspension (A2)

Students must sit out a mandatory two major terms - a fall and spring semester.
