Academic Probation

Academic Probation Status is defined as a period of time during which the student's progress will be closely monitored by the APPC and by the Executive Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. A student will be placed on Academic Probation Status for any of the following reasons:

  • A quarter and/or cumulative grade point average of less than 2.0.
  • When directed to undergo Extension with Delayed Academic Progression.
  • If there are any unresolved grades of “F” on a student’s academic record.

When a student is placed on Academic Probation, it is noted in the student's academic file and transcripts. Subsequently, notation is also made in the student’s academic file and transcripts when the student is returned to “Good Academic Standing."

When a student is placed on Academic Probation, they will be notified in writing by the Executive Associate Dean for Academic Affairs of this change in academic status and the reasons for this action. A copy of this letter will be placed in the student's academic record. The Executive Associate Dean for Academic Affairs will ascertain when the terms of the Academic Probation have been satisfied and inform the student and APPC that Academic Probation Status is rescinded.

A student on Academic Probation may not serve as an officer of any official College or University clubs or organizations, participate in work-study, be a member of the COP Committee, and shall not engage in time-consuming extracurricular activities. Oversight will be provided by the Director of Admissions and Student Services and the Executive Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.

A first-, second-, or third-year student on Academic Probation should meet with her/his faculty advisor at least once a month. A fourth-year student on Academic Probation should contact the Associate Dean of Clinical Affairs.

The student will remain on Academic Probation until the following minimal acceptable standards are met. A first-, second-, or third-year student will be removed from Academic Probation after her/his cumulative grade point average is above 2.0 and all failed courses have been successfully reconciled. A fourth-year student, because of a failing clinical rotation grade, will be removed from Academic Probation after successfully completing remediation of the “F”.
