What does it mean if I am on probation in L&S?

An L&S undergraduate student is placed on probation if his/her term GPA (or cumulative GPA) is below a 2.0.  The probation system is designed to serve as a warning to students that their academic performance (either in a series of classes or through their GPA) is not strong enough for them to be making acceptable progress toward their undergraduate degree.   The College of Letters & Science strongly encourages students who have been placed on probation to seek advising from their assigned academic advisor for help with schedule planning and to discuss any issues that my have caused poor results in the first place.  
  • A student will clear probation once his/her cumulative and term GPA are at least a 2.0 on any number of credits and the student's academic record contains no grade(s) of Incomplete (I).  

All undergraduate students in L&S are requirement to have at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA (a "C" average) in order to graduate in L&S.  A student must also earn term GPA of 2.0 each semester or term.
