Academic Probation 

What is Academic Probation?

An undergraduate is automatically placed on academic probation when the cumulative GPA drops below 2.0.

  • Students who fall within the academic probation category at the end of any semester will be limited to enrolling in no more than 14 hours in the following semester.
  • When a student is placed on academic probation, it is the responsibility of the student to arrange regular meetings with his or her academic advisor or department chair/director to consider specific academic intervention strategies.
