Academic Warning, Probation, and Suspension
To implement the University requirements for academic warning, probation, and suspension, the School of Engineering has adopted the following provisions to assure engineering students who experience difficulty will receive prompt attention.
1. Warning: A student will be placed on academic warning if his or her term grade point average is below 2.0. A student who is on academic warning may be returned to academic good standing by achieving a term grade average of 2.0 or greater and an accumulative grade point average of 2.0 or greater.
2. Probation: A student will be placed on academic probation if his or her term grade point average is below 1.0 or the cumulative grade point average is below the minimum University requirement. A student who is on academic warning will be placed on academic probation if his or her term grade point average is below 2.0. A student who is on academic probation may have conditions imposed on him or her as a requirement to return to academic good standing. A student who is on academic probation cannot be returned to good standing until a term grade point average and a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or greater are both achieved.
3. Suspension: A student who is on academic probation may be suspended for at least one term if his or her term grade point average is below 2.0. Any full-time student who fails to pass a minimum of three hours in any term will be subject to academic suspension for at least one term. Additionally, students who have demonstrated an inability to complete the special academic requirements of their chosen program of study may be suspended for at least one term. Also, no course may be taken more than twice in the undergraduate program. Finally, a maximum of four courses may be repeated. Violation of these course repeat limits may lead to suspension for at least one term. See “Repeating Courses” in the “Academic Information” section of this catalog for further information on the University repeat policy. Students who have been suspended may be readmitted to the University with permission from an academic dean.
