A student may placed on academic probation after a major semester (fall or spring) if his or her cumulative gpa after that semester fails to meet minimum scholastic attainment standards.
Once placed on probation at the end of a fall or spring term, a student must show satisfactory academic improvement by the end of the next major semester, regardless of the number of hours earned or attempted, or the student will be subject to dismissal. Generally, satisfactory academic improvement is defined as continuous, significant improvement in GPA earned at the end of each semester during the probationary period (15 credit hours excluding EDLS 100). The improvement must be great enough so that the student makes progress toward achieving academic good standing. The decision regarding satisfactory academic improvement will be made by the director of the Office of Undergraduate Academic Services.
If a student is retained for a second probation term, he or she must make up the GPA deficiency in the next major semester or be subject to dismissal for academic deficiency.
A student on academic probation is required to enroll in and successfully complete EDLS 100: Learning Strategies, during the next major semester if the student has not already successfully completed the course.
A student on academic probation may receive transfer credit for courses at another institution but is not normally eligible for cross registration or leave privileges.
The conditions of probation including required enrollment in Learning Strategies are intended to give students who are experiencing difficulties further opportunity to demonstrate adequate performance and to provide assistance to students who have had significant problems interfering with their ability to study. Undergraduate Academic Services strongly encourages all students on academic probation to take advantage of available academic and personal support resources.
