Probation and Dismissal

Academic Probation

A student is placed on probation for failing to maintain a 2.0 GPA for all courses undertaken in a term. A student must achieve a GPA of 2.0 or higher, based on a minimum of 12 letter-graded units, during the following term in order to continue in the university. For students in the Weekend/Evening College, the 2.0 GPA for the following term is based on a maximum of 6 letter-graded units.

Academic Dismissal

A student is subject to dismissal for the following reasons:

  • Failure to maintain a minimum GPA of 1.0 during any term,
  • Failure to maintain a minimum GPA of 2.0 during a probationary term, or
  • Failure to maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0.

Students are notified by the appropriate academic dean of their dismissal. When extenuating circumstances, such as prolonged illness, account for the disqualification, the student may be permitted, on petition to the appropriate academic dean, to continue on probation for the next term.

Enrollment in the University implies willingness on the part of the student to comply with the requirements and regulations of the University. If the student fails to comply with these requirements and regulations, or if it is determined by the dean that the student is not able to benefit from the opportunities offered by the University, withdrawal may be requested even though no specific breach of discipline is charged.
