What is the L&S Academic Probation System?

This sections explains how L&S undergraduate students qualify to be placed on probation.

An undergraduate student in the College of Letters & Science is placed on probation when his/her term [fall/spring term or summer session(s)] GPA falls below a 2.000.   If things are not going well and a student's grades are declining, the probation system allows a student a semester to improve his/her grades.  In short, the probation system gives students time to assess their strategies and to make some improvements so that they may obtain the required 2.000 GPA needed to graduate.  More detailed information can be found at probation.

The L&S Undergraduate Probation System is as follows:

  • If a student is not on probation and earns a term GPA of 1.000 - 1.999, the student is placed on probation.
  • If a student is not on probation and earns a term GPA of less than 1.000, the student is placed on strict probation.
  • If a student is on probation and earns a term GPA of 1.500 - 1.999, the student is placed on strict probation.
  • If a student is on probation and earns a term GPA of less than 1.500, the student is dropped (placed on academic suspension) for one (1) year.
  • If a student is on strict probation and earns a term GPA below 2.000, the student is dropped (placed on academic suspension) for one (1) year.
Students can clear probation when:
  • their cumulative and term GPA are at least a 2.000 on any number of credits, and
  • their academic records contain no grade(s) of Incomplete (I)
