Academic Probation

1.A student whose cumulative grade point average is less than 2.0 is automatically placed on probation until a 2.0 cumulative grade point average is achieved. In the College of Engineering, a student earning a 1.5 average in any semester regardless of his or her cumulative grade point average will be placed on probation. In the College of Pharmacy, a student earning less than a 2.0 average in any semester regardless of his or her cumulative grade point average will be placed on probation.

2.As long as a student remains on academic probation, enrollment restrictions may be imposed by the student's college.

Academic Suspension

Students may be suspended from the University if they fail to maintain the required cumulative grade point average. A student under academic suspension will be dropped from the University for a period of at least one semester following the semester in which the student qualifies for suspension. Refer to each college's statement for information regarding the specific policies and grade point averages. A cumulative grade point average on attempting specific levels of course work defined in items 1-6 below qualifies the student for suspension.

1. less than 1.0 after attempting 10-19 semester hours
2. less than 1.5 after attempting 20-29 semester hours
3. less than 1.7 after attempting 30-39 semester hours
4. less than 1.8 after attempting 40-49 semester hours
5. less than 1.9 after attempting 50-59 semester hours
6. less than 2.0 after attempting 60 semester hours

Each college will set its own conditions for readmission. After accumulating 60 credit hours without suspension, a student may be suspended if the student falls below a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 for two consecutive semesters.

Consult the Probation and Suspension policies for each College for more specific information. The University Community and Technical College, the Graduate School and the Colleges of Engineering and Pharmacy have separate and distinct policies from the other baccalaureate colleges.
