Academic Probation/Suspension

Academic Probation

A student whose cumulative GPA is less than 2.0 is automatically placed on probation until a 2.0 cumulative GPA is achieved ( See Withdrawal Policy ). While on probation, it is recommended that a student not enroll for more than 12 - 14 credits.


Academic Suspension

Academic suspension means that a student is prohibited from registering at The University of Toledo for a period of at least one semester. A student is subject to academic suspension if that person falls below the minimum GPA listed below or fails to make sufficient progress toward attainment of the degree ( See Withdrawal Policy ). Students may remove Incompletes while under suspension. However, no course work taken at any other educational institution during the student's suspension shall be accepted as transfer credit.

A student is subject to academic suspension if the cumulative GPA is less than:

1.0 for 10 - 19 hours attempted
1.5 for 20 - 29 hours attempted
1.7 for 30 - 39 hours attempted
1.8 for 40 - 49 hours attempted
1.9 for 50 - 59 hours attempted
2.0 for 60 or more hours attempted

After accumulating 60 credit hours without suspension, a student may be suspended if the cumulative GPA falls below 2.0 for two consecutive semesters.


Trial Readmission and Dismissal Policies

After the required suspension period, a student may petition for readmission to the College of Arts and Sciences Committee on Academic Standing. The petition must be received at least one month before the beginning of the semester in which the student wishes to readmit. If the petition is accepted, the college committee will determine the terms of the Conditional Registration Agreement under which the student will be permitted to re-enroll. Suspended students who are granted readmission must maintain the designated GPA for each semester thereafter and meet the conditions of their readmission agreement. Students failing to meet these conditions are subject to a one-year suspension. Students who fail to meet the conditions for readmission after their second suspension are subject to dismissal and are not eligible for readmission to the College of Arts and Sciences for at least three years. Refer to the General Section of this catalog for information on the Academic Forgiveness Policy.


Academic Grievance

Students have the responsibility and right to call to the attention of an instructor any grade that the student believes to be in error or unfair. Students may appeal, in order, to the department chair, the associate dean, then to the College Appeals Committee if the problem is not resolved. If the problem is not resolved at the college level, the student may appeal to the Student Grievance Council (See also The University of Toledo Student Handbook). Students must begin the appeals process no later than the end of the semester following the one in which the grievance arose.
