According to the Undergraduate Student Handbook, any student who fails to maintain a 2.000 cumulative grade point average (C average) in on academic probation. A student is removed from academic probation when the cumulative grade point average reaches the required minimum of 2.000. A student's academic status is reviewed after any Autumn, Winter, Spring, and Summer quarters in which the student was enrolled in at least 1 credit hour. A probationary student may be limited to 12 credit hours per quarter until a cumulative GPA is 2.000 is reached. A student who remains on probation for three sequential quarters of enrollment may be dismissed.
At the end of each quarter, the College of Science and Health works with the Office of the University Registrar to place registration holds on probationary students' accounts. Probation holds are placed on students' records as a way to ensure they meet with their academic advisors to discuss their ongoing academic progress.
The College of Science and Health Probation Registration Hold Removal Agreement (Academic Probation Contract) is an agreement signed by the student and academic advisor during an advising meeting. The agreement states the university's academic probation policy and lists several recommendations for action and resources that can help a student return to good academic standing. The hold is lifted when the student meets with an academic advisor and signs the agreement.
