2019-2020 Undergraduate Academic Catalog

Academic Probation

If a student fails to meet academic standing in the second consecutive semester after being placed on Academic Alert, will then be place on Academic Probation if the if the student's cumulative GPA falls below 2.0 (CLAS) or 2.3 (LA+D) and 2.0 for freshman (LA+D). If, while on Academic Probation, a student earns a semester GPA of 2.0 or greater but has a cumulative GPA below a 2.0 will remain on Academic Probation.

The Academic Review Committee may place a student on academic probation if the student has not completed 75% of courses attempted, has not met the internships/student teaching requirement of the major, or has been placed under Divisional Review.

The Associate Dean of the college will notify the student by email of the Academic Review Committee's decision to place the student on academic probation. The student may appeal this decision by providing potentially significant information or evidence that was not available to, or considered by, the Academic Review committee. The student has five (5) business days from the date of the email notification to file an appeal with the Dean's office. The Dean of the college will review the decision of the Academic Review committee and all documentation both considered by the committee and provided by the student. The Dean will make the final decision on academic probation and will notify the student and the Academic Review committee of the decision.

Academic Support While on Alert or Probation

CLAS students on Academic Probation must adjust their course loads to have no more than 12 credits, and may be required to reduce their involvement in co-curricular activities until they have achieved satisfactory academic standards. Students should make appropriate use of the University's academic and personal support services, including the Academic Advising Center and the University's Center for Academic Achievement.

The Director of Academic Advising will assign CLAS students (non-LCAL) who are on academic probation with a Probation Advisor to serve in addition to the student's regular academic advisor. LCAL students (on campus, off campus and online adult learners) will obtain this additional support from their academic advisor.
