Students who do not attain good academic standing are placed on academic probation.  All probation students, both on campus and online, must do the following:

  1. Complete the Academic Action Plan PDF File Icon
    • Visit with your advisor and the Academic Success Center during Week 1 of the semester
    • Visit with your advisor again during Weeks 5-6 to check your progress and update your plan if necessary
    • Check your grades at mid-term to be sure you are on track.  You may be contacted by the Academic Success Center if you appear to be having problems with classes.
    • Visit your advisor again during Weeks 11-12 to check your progress and select classes for the next semester.

Students who do not file an Academic Action Plan, or follow the terms of their plan, may lose their right to appeal in the event they are suspended at the end of the probation semester. Students need to attain a term GPA of 2.0 during their probation semester to avoid suspension.
