Academic Probation

A student is placed on academic probation when the student's cumulative GPA falls below 2.0 for two consecutive semesters of attendance, including summer sessions. A student on academic probation may not enroll in more than 15 credits per semester of attendance (no more than six credits in the summer sessions, and no more than one course in any single summer session).

Students on academic probation are required to meet regularly with their advisor during their next semester of attendance.

Students on academic probation are expected to improve their cumulative GPA by achieving a semester GPA of 2.0 or better during each semester of attendance. A student who achieves a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 is removed from academic probation and placed in good academic standing. Failure to achieve a 2.0 semester GPA at the end of a fall or spring semester while on probation results in academic suspension.

Students who receive a 0.0 GPA for two consecutive semesters (fall, spring) will be suspended immediately.
