Academic Probation

Academic Support

We offer academic support services for students who are on academic probation, or at-risk of academic probation.  These services include online workshops, accessed via Blackboard: the Academic Student Success Course for students on academic probation, and UNIV 101 for students at-risk of academic probation.

Academic Probation

You are placed on probation and are so notified by the university whenever your fall or spring semester GPA or your cumulative GPA at the end of any fall or spring semester is less than a 2.0. 

  • If you are on academic probation and your cumulative GPA is less than 2.0 but your semester GPA is greater than or equal to 2.0, you will remain on probation.
  • If you are on academic probation and your semester GPA is less than 2.0 but your cumulative GPA is greater than or equal to 2.0, you will remain on probation.

An appropriate notation will be made on your academic record. Any grade change will require recalculation of your probation status.

Academic standing will not be assessed in summer sessions.

You are removed from probation at the end of the first subsequent fall or spring semester in which your semester and cumulative GPA are greater than or equal to 2.0.

A student who wishes to appeal an academic probation standing should contact the academic department of their major for guidance in the appeal process.

Students who are on academic probation because of their cumulative GPA may be at risk for academic dismissal.
