Early Alert & Probation

Early Alert & Probation

ACTION PLAN TEMPLATE

SELF ASSESSMENT FORM


Early Alerts

When faculty have concerns about your attendance, academic performance, or personal well-being, they will submit an Early Alert Form to your Academic Advisor to notify them of the problem. When your Academic Advisor receives an alert, they will reach out to you to ensure steps are taken to resolve the issue.You will be contacted by your student email, Facebook, or phone. These meetings are an opportunity to make sure you have the resources you need to succeed in your class and that you are communicating directly with your professor.

Academic Probation

Undergraduate students are placed on academic probation if the cumulative or semester GPA drops below 2.00. The Probation Review Committee reviews the progress of all students on academic probation. This committee includes, the Provost, the registrar, and academic advisors. The committee sets the stipulations that probationary students must meet to continue enrollment. These stipulations may include, but are not limited to, the number of credit hours for which the student may enroll and participation in extracurricular activities. Students on probation who fail to meet the stipulations of the Probation Review Committee may be suspended. An e-mail informing the student of his or her probationary status is sent to the student’s personal e-mail and school e-mail addresses after the Probation Review Committee meets to evaluate grades.

Academic Suspension

Academic suspension of a student normally follows a period of probation, but a student may be suspended after one term of unsatisfactory academic performance if such action is deemed appropriate by the Probation Review Committee. A student may be suspended if the semester GPA falls below 1.00, regardless of past performance. Continued unsatisfactory academic progress may result in academic dismissal. An e-mail informing the student of his or her suspension status is sent to the student’s personal e-mail and school e-mail addresses after the Probation Review Committee meets to evaluate grades.

Right of Appeal

Any student placed on academic probation may appeal the limitation on the number of credit hours for which the student may enroll in the semester during which he or she is on academic probation by following the process noted below. Any student suspended may appeal the suspension by following the process noted below which includes two
parts:

  • Part one is a written appeal letter. This letter needs to include the factors that the student feels negatively affected his or her academic performance, as well as a detailed action plan that lists how the student intends to improve future academic performance if the appeal is granted.
  • Part two is an appeal review by the Probation/Suspension Review Committee. The decision of the Probation/Suspension Review Committee is final.

Any student suspended for poor academic performance may not apply for readmission until an academic year has lapsed (or longer period as may be stipulated by the Probation/Suspension Review Committee). The application for readmission must be made through the Provost and reviewed by the Probation/Suspension Review Committee.
