Academic Warning and Probation

Academic Warning

Students are placed on Academic Warning whenever their semester average drops below 2.0 while their cumulative average remains above this minimum. 

The University reserves the right to consider other indicators of satisfactory progress toward degree completion in its determination of Academic Warning. These indicators include an unsatisfactory grade point average in the major (as required by the department) or Boler Core (below a 2.0 GPA), or multiple course Failures and Withdrawals. Students may remain on Academic Warning for two consecutive semesters. Students who do not improve their academic record after two semesters on Warning will be placed on Academic Probation. 

Students may not appeal the sanctions of Academic Warning and Probation.

Academic Probation

Students are placed on Academic Probation when their cumulative grade point average drops below a 2.0, or who have been on Academic warning for two consecutive semesters. Students on probation are subject to the following restrictions:

  1. Course registration is limited to 12-13 semester hours.

  2. Varsity student-athletes may not compete nor travel with teams for competition. They may sit on the bench at home competitions, but not in uniform. In order to practice while on Academic Probation, a student may initiate a "Permission to Practice Procedure," which involves signatures of approval and must be processed in the Office of the Registrar. The student will be charged a season of eligibility for team practice. Summer team travel is permitted with Coach and Athletic Director approvals. 

  3. They may not pledge a fraternity or sorority, or hold any elective or appointive office on campus. Students remain on Academic Probation for at least one semester until the 2.0 cumulative grade point average is earned. Probationary status may extend for up to two, consecutive semesters.

Students may not appeal the sanctions of Academic Probation.
