Probation Rules

Academic Probation

Students are placed on academic probation when their term (academic semester or summer session) GPA is between 1.00 – 1.99.

Strict Probation

Students are placed on strict probation when their term GPA falls below 1.00 or if they were on probation already and their term GPA is between 1.50 and 2.00.

Academic Suspension (Dropped Status)

Students who have had at least two (2) consecutive semesters/terms in which they have earned a GPA of less than 2.00 may be dropped from the University. Students on probation who earn less than a 1.50 and students on strict probation who earn less than a 2.00 will be dropped. These students will not be allowed to continue with their degree until they have spent one full year away.

**One year equates to one full calendar year.  For example, a student who was dropped after the summer 2015 term must take off  fall 2015, spring 2016, and summer 2016.  The earliest this student is eligible to return to continue his/her undergraduate studies would be fall 2016.

Good Academic Standing

Students who are in good academic standing have a cumulative GPA of at least a 2.00 and their most recent term GPA at least a 2.00. Students in good academic standing are not on any form of academic probation and are not at risk of being dropped from the University.
