Academic Probation

Students who have earned less than a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA are placed on academic probation. When a student’s cumulative GPA reaches or exceeds 2.0, he or she will be removed from academic probation and considered to be in good standing. A student who has been on academic probation for two consecutive semesters of attendance may be subject to academic suspension. A student is notified by Rams Mail of his/her status and the steps that must be taken to remove the status of probation.

Students on academic probation must make an appointment to meet with their faculty or academic advisor to register. The advisor may:

  • Limit their enrollment to nine (9) credit hours or less for the semester.
  • Prescribe specific developmental or required courses for enrollment.
  • Specify the mechanism by which courses are delivered, e.g., student may be restricted from taking any online courses.
  • Require the student to meet with the advisor at various times throughout the semester to discuss the student’s academic progress.
  • Require students with a grade of “F” to repeat failed course(s) before registering for new additional courses in the subsequent semester.
