Academic Probation

A student that has attempted at least 15 credit hours and fails to maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress during any term will be placed on academic probation at the end of that term. (See table below). A student on academic probation is encouraged to contact their advisor during the semester of probation to develop a plan for academic success. A student on academic probation may be required to attend workshops designed to bolster academic performance. A student on academic probation must wait to register for the subsequent semester until the previous semester grades are available. The scale used to determine Academic Probation is provided below:

Academic Standing

Overall Credit Hours Attempted Minimum Overall GPA
15 1.54
16 - 30 1.75
31 - 45 1.95
46 and Above 2.0

Students will remain on academic probation until they raise their overall grade point average to a 2.00 or they will risk academic suspension.
