Undergraduate Academic Probation

 

 

Students are placed on academic probation as a warning that they are in jeopardy of losing their good academic standing. Students are informed of their probationary status by a letter from the Director of the Advising & Learning Assistance Center at the end of the semester. Academic and extracurricular restrictions may be placed on them so that they can concentrate on their academic programs.

A student whose quality point average for any term falls below 1.50 is placed on academic probation automatically. In addition, any student whose cumulative quality point average falls below the following specified averages is automatically placed on probation: freshman -- 1.50 at the end of the fall term or 1.60 at the end of the spring term; sophomores -- 1.70 at the end of the fall or spring term; juniors and seniors -- 1.80 at the end of the fall or spring term.

Probation is removed when the following minimum requirements are met during a term in a program of not less than 12 credit hours: freshman -- 1.80 quality point average for the term and a cumulative quality point average of 1.60; sophomores -- 1.80 quality point average for the term and a cumulative quality point average of 1.70; junior and seniors -- 1.80 quality point average for the term and a cumulative quality point average of 1.80.

A student on academic probation may have that status removed at the end of the summer session if he or she maintained a quality point average of 1.50 during the previous term and has raised his or her cumulative average to the following prescribed levels: entering sophomore year, 1.60; entering junior year, 1.70; entering senior year, 1.80.
