Instructions for Students on Academic Warning

UNDECLARED STUDENTS PLEASE NOTE:

Undeclared students on Academic Warning MUST meet with their advisor and attend a workshop.

Instructions for ALL Students:

NOTE: YOU MUST MEET WITH YOUR ADVISOR WITHIN THE FIRST THREE DAYS OF THE SEMESTER TO DISCUSS YOUR ACADEMIC WARNING STATUS AND CORRECTIVE ACTIONS THAT YOU COULD TAKE.

As a result of your academic performance this past semester, you are on academic warning. There are two standards that set the criteria for academic warning status. One standard is semester grade point average and the other is credit hours completed and passed. A review of your grade report should indicate which one, or possibly both, apply to your circumstance. The following might be helpful:

Academic warning results for full-time students if any of these apply

  • Semester grade point average is below 2.0.
  • Did not complete 12 credits of study in this semester.
  • Did not pass 9 credit hours this semester and total registered credit hours is 60 or less.
  • Did not pass 12 credit hours this semester and total registered credit hours is 60 or more.

To get yourself into good standing and off of academic warning by the end of next semester you may have to take one of the following actions:

  • Complete an "Inc" grade - must be completed by the end of the sixth week of the semester. Consult with the professor who issued the grade.
  • Repeat "E" grade course(s) - drop a currently registered course and add a repeated "E" grade course(s) before the end of the ADD period. Obtain a Program Adjustments form in the office of your major department (Student Advisement Center for undeclared majors). Consult with your advisor.
  • Repeat "D" grade course(s) - drop a currently registered course and add a repeated "D" grade course(s) before the end of the ADD period. Obtain a Program Adjustments form in the office of your major department (Student Advisement Center for undeclared majors). You should consult with an advisor to repeat a "D" grade. This is essential because of academic policy and financial aid implications connected with repeated courses.

It is your responsibility to initiate the appropriate course of action. If you cannot understand the situation, academic standards and action that should be taken can be explained by your advisor. Make an appointment and meet with her/him as soon as possible after returning to campus. This should be taken care of within the first three days of the semester. If you fully understand the situation and have chosen a course of action, you should still meet with your advisor to ensure that the choice and action are appropriate. In any case, the consequences of the choice rest with you.

DECLARED MAJORS: If your advisor is not available, contact the advisement coordinator (name and office number are published in the course listing newspaper).

UNDECLARED STUDENTS: If your advisor is not available, the Student Advisement Center (501 Culkin Hall) will provide you with assistance.
