Probation and Academic Dismissal

University students are expected to maintain good academic standing. The University considers a cumulative quality point average of “B” (CQPA) of 3.0  (Graduate Only) to be evidence of good academic standing, but specific college/schools or programs may have higher requirements. Please contact school or program administrator for specific program definition of satisfactory progress. Students are generally allowed one semester on probation to improve their academic performance and to raise their CQPA. However, students with serious or continuing deficiencies will be academically dismissed from the University. Please consult individual programs sections of this catalog for additional information.

Students who are academically dismissed from the University are allowed one appeal. Student appeals are made directly to the respective college/school. Please contact school or program administrator for the appropriate reinstatement procedure.
