2.34.11 Probation; Undergraduate Academic
   
2.34.11.010 Undergraduate students whose cumulative honor point average falls below 2.00 will be placed on "Academic Probation." Subject to the approval of the President or his/her designee, individual Colleges and Schools may establish higher minimum honor point averages for academic probation in their programs.
   
2.34.11.020 An "Academic Probation" hold shall be placed on the student's record when the cumulative honor point average (H.P.A.) falls below 2.00. The student shall be permitted to register only after consultation with and approval by a designated university advisor.
   
2.34.11.030 The statement "Academic Probation" shall be printed on the grade report and the student record for the first term in which the cumulative average falls below 2.00. Thereafter, the statement "Probation Continued" shall appear on the record and grade report until the student attains "Regular Status". "Regular Status" is restored when the student achieves a cumulative H.P.A. of 2.00 for one semester. In any subsequent term where both the cumulative H.P.A. average and the term H.P.A. are below 2.00, probation will be reinstated.
   
2.34.11.040 Students shall be given two subsequent terms of enrollment after going on probation to achieve a cumulative 2.00 H.P.A. At the conclusion of the two terms, students who have not achieved a cumulative H.P.A. of at least 2.00 shall be excluded from Registration.
   
2.34.11.050 The President or his/her designee may promulgate guidelines for review of Academic Probation Status, appeals regarding exclusion, program requirements for students on probation status, readmission decisions and record-keeping.

Compiler Notes
(1) The administration recommended the adoption of a statute which establishes University-wide minimum criteria for academic probation. It will ensure greater procedural uniformity and will help in the early identification of students who need academic assistance. (Official Proceedings 32:4352, 10 June 1988)
