Minimum acceptable academic progress, based on grade point average, will be determined after each semester based on cumulative hours attempted. Students failing to meet minimum acceptable academic progress, as outlined above, are subject to the following sanctions.

Warning Semester

Students below the minimum acceptable standards for academic progress for the semester will be placed on warning for the following semester. During the warning term, sanctions may include repeating of courses, limitation of credit hours, structured study times in the Academic Success Center, development of individual learning contracts, adjustment of housing assignments, or limitation of participation in non-class, College-sponsored activities. Student status will be reviewed at the end of the warning semester.

Probation Semester

At the end of the warning semester, students who continue to fall below the minimum acceptable standards for academic progress will be placed on probation. Probation sanctions may include those named in the warning sanctions, as well as financial sanctions. While probation is in effect, a student is subject to suspension from the College at any time when, in the opinion of instructors and the Vice President for Academic Affairs or Associate Dean, the student's academic effort or social conduct fails to evidence a responsible approach to studies. Student status will be reviewed at the end of the probation semester.

Suspension Semester

At the end of the probation semester, students who continue to fall below the minimum acceptable standards for academic progress will be suspended from the College for a semester. However, students have the right of appeal to the Academic Affairs Council. The suspension decision and appeal will be reviewed individually according to the following considerations:

  1. past performance;
  2. mitigating circumstances (e.g., health, family, personal considerations);
  3. the performance trend as reflected in the GPA performance over earlier semesters;
  4. achieving the minimum GPA for the students credit hour standard as defined above;
  5. performance/compliance within the programs assigned as condition of probation; and
  6. other individual circumstances and considerations.

Readmission after Academic Suspension

Students may be readmitted to the College after a semester through application to the Admissions Committee. The readmission decision will be based upon student's compliance with conditions of suspension, evidence suggesting potential for improvement, and/or other individual factors. Readmission to the College is not guaranteed and should not be assumed.

Other Causes for Academic Suspension

Students who demonstrate a callous disregard for learning as stated in the Student Codes section of the current Student Handbook, may be subject to suspension by the Academic Affairs Office, together with either the Vice President for Student Services, or the Dean of Students. In addition, students who commit academic dishonesty may be subject to suspension or expulsion from the College (see Academic Integrity).
