Academic Warning/Probation/Suspension

 

Warning: Any student who earns a grade of C in any course will receive notice of academic warning.

 

 

 

Probation: A student whose cumulative grade point average falls below 3.00 will be placed on academic probation.

 

 

 

Suspension: Students whose performance fails to meet program or University academic standards may be suspended for specified periods of time, after which an Application for Readmission must be submitted to the Vice President of Academic Affairs and Dean of the Graduate College.

 

 

 

Should the student receive a second suspension, the student will be dismissed.

 

 

 

Appeal Process: Probation/Suspension: Students may appeal academic probation or suspension if unusual and/or mitigating circumstances have affected academic progress. Examples of such circumstances are severe illness, an injury that has affected student performance, an illness or injury of a student’s immediate family member, death of a relative, student deployment or activation into military service, or other circumstances that have caused a student not to meet academic progress requirements. All appeals must be in writing and sent to the Vice President of Academic Affairs and Dean of the Graduate College. The appeal should clearly address the circumstances that led to the action. Students must appeal within one (1) month of notification of academic probation or suspension.
