Probation is assigned to all students in the College whose term grade point average falls below 2.0 but whose deficit is not severe enough to justify suspension. Students are placed on probation whenever the term grade point average falls below a 2.0 during a term or half-term, regardless of the number of courses or credits elected or whether the cumulative grade point average remains above a 2.0.
Probation Continued is assigned when a student on probation has earned a term grade point average above a 2.0 but the cumulative grade point average of 2.0 has not yet been achieved. Probation Continued might also be assigned if a probationary student has a term average of exactly 2.0 or slightly below 2.0, so long as members of the Academic Standards Board feel that the student is making minimum progress toward fulfilling degree and program requirements.
Special Probation is assigned to students whose record leaves some question about whether immediate continuation in the College is advisable. These students are required to meet with an Academic Standards Board member within the deadline specified in the notification letter to plan appropriate course electives. A student who fails to make this appointment will be disenrolled from the term.
The conditions for a student on Probation or Probation Continued are that all courses in the ensuing term will be completed by the end of the term with a term grade point average greater than 2.0. Specific conditions of probation are stated in a letter notifying the student of the action taken by the College.
All students placed on probation are required to discuss their academic situation with an academic advisor or a member of the Academic Standards Board and to take advantage of College and University resources to assist them in improving their level of academic performance.
Raised Probation officially confirms that a student has completed a probationary term with better than a 2.0 grade point average and that a student's cumulative grade point average is at least a 2.0.Pro
