While on probation, a student is allowed to continue enrollment, but is no longer in good standing and is in jeopardy of being dismissed from the program. Probation serves as a serious warning that the academic performance needs improvement. Students on Academic Probation must submit an action plan addressing concerns impacting the academic performance and outlining a plan for achieving academic success to be  approved by the academic advisor. While on Academic Probation, student will be dismissed from the program at the end of the term if the semester GPA are below a 2.5.
