Academic Standing

Academic Probation

Students who fail to earn a 2.00 cumulative Grade Point Average at completion of an academic semester or summer session are placed on academic probation. While on academic probation, a student may schedule no more than 13 credits per fall or spring term and no more than 7 credit hours per summer term unless otherwise recommended by the administrator of a Division or a faculty advisor. Students are removed from academic probation only when the cumulative Grade Point Average reaches 2.00 or above. Students on Academic Probation are required to receive an advisor's approval to register for classes. For online registration the Alternate PIN obtained from the advisor meets this requirement. It is the student's responsibility to consult with a counselor to devise a plan for removing academic deficiencies.

Academic Suspension

"Academic Suspension" may occur when students fail to maintain a Grade Point Average consistent with the following table. Students failing to maintain appropriate Grade Point Averages at the completion of a full or summer term, and students who receive a W grade in more than 50 percent or more credits after 30 credits attempted will be suspended for a period of no less than one fall or spring term, after which an Academic Suspension Reinstatement Application (pdf) may be submitted. Students who believe extenuating circumstances affected their academic performance and wish to appeal the minimum fall or spring term suspension period must complete the Academic Suspension Reinstatement Application (pdf) and attach supporting documentation.

Full-time students will not be suspended at the end of the first semester of attendance, and part-time students will not be suspended before the completion of 12 credit hours. A student may be placed on academic suspension without first having been on academic probation.
