ACADEMIC SUSPENSION

One Semester Suspension

A student on academic probation is placed on academic suspension for one semester at the end of any semester or term in which the student fails to maintain a 2.0 (C) GPA on the work attempted during that period. After one fall or spring semester on suspension, a suspended student will be automatically eligible for reenrollment but will be required to file readmission forms (available in the Office of Admissions). A summer term will not fulfill a suspension period.

One Calendar Year Suspension

Upon readmission following a period of academic suspension, a student who again fails to meet minimum probationary standards (a 2.0 GPA on the work attempted during the period) will be suspended for one calendar year (12 months). After fulfilling the requirement of a year’s suspension period, a student may enroll without appearing before the Readmissions Committee, but will be required to file readmission forms (available in the Office of Admissions). Re-enrollment during this suspension period will require an appeal to the Readmissions Committee and is subject to special conditions that may be imposed by the Readmissions Committee.

Three Calendar Years Suspension

Subsequent academic suspension of a student will result in a student’s ineligibility to enroll for a period of three calendar years. No appeals will be considered during the first year of the three-year suspension period. Reenrollment following the first year of the three-year suspension period will require an appeal to the Readmissions Committee and is subject to special conditions that may be imposed by the Readmissions Committee. After fulfilling the requirement of the three-year academic suspension period, the student may enroll without appearing before the Readmissions Committee, but will be required to file readmission forms in the Office of Admissions.

Any student re-enrolling after academic suspension, whether by the completion of the suspension period or a successful appeal to the Readmissions Committee, will remain on academic probation until that status is removed by earning at least the minimum cumulative GPA for removal of probationary status.
