Probation and Suspension

In order to be considered in good academic standing, students are required to meet the following minimum cumulative and/or semester Grade Point Average:

Hours Attempted Minimum Cumulative GPA
  0-15.5 credit hours 1.5
16-29.5 credit hours 1.6
30-59.5 credit hours 1.7
60-89.5 credit hours 1.8
90+ credit hours 1.9

Probation

Students will be placed or continued on academic probation if their cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) falls below the minimum specified for the number of hours they've attempted. Students who earn a semester GPA below 1.5, regardless of their cumulative average, will also be placed or continued on probation.

Suspension

Students who have been on probation for two consecutive semesters and fail to achieve the necessary minimum Grade Point Average will be suspended for one semester.

Students who have been accepted into the Transitions Program will be suspended if they do not bring their cumulative Grade Point Average to the minimum specified for the number of hours they've attempted by the end of their second semester.

Students who have been academically suspended must apply for readmission if they desire to return.

Appeal Process

If a student wishes this suspension to be reconsidered, he or she has the option for an appeal to the faculty Academic Affairs Appeals Committee. If the Committee upholds the suspension and the student is not satisfied, the student has the option for a further appeal to the Vice President of Academic Affairs.

Dismissal

Students placed on suspension for a third time will be dismissed from the University for a period of five years. Students who are dismissed for academic reasons must apply for readmission if they desire to return.
