Academic Warning and Suspension - Graduate
Any graduate student, including any student enrolled in the graduate certificate program, who has attempted 9.0 quarter credits and whose overall cumulative GPA falls below 2.5, will be placed on warning for the following quarter. The University will notify the student in writing of his/her academic standing within two weeks after the quarter ends. A student placed on warning status should meet with an academic counselor upon notification in order to review his/her academic plan.
If by the end of the warning quarter the student’s overall cumulative GPA remains below 2.5, the student will be academically suspended. He/she will be notified in writing of his/her suspension within two weeks after the quarter ends. A suspended student is disqualified from enrolling at the University and must wait one calendar year after the end of the quarter in which the student became suspended to apply for readmission.
A suspended student may enroll before the one-year waiting period expires, if an academic advisor or designee recommends an academic recovery plan. Once an academic recovery plan is established a student's academic status changes from suspension to probation. A student remains in probation status for two quarters.
If the student’s cumulative GPA is at least 2.5 at the end of the probation period, then the student returns to satisfactory academic standing. If the student’s cumulative GPA remains below 2.5 at the end of the probation period, then the student returns to suspension academic standing.
VA education benefits will be terminated for any VA student placed under academic suspension for one calendar year. Benefits may resume when the student returns to satisfactory academic standing.
