Academic Suspension

Student grades are reviewed at the end of each semester. Once a student is put on probation, if he or she falls below the standard for good academic standing (as defined above) in the next semester, the student will be placed on academic suspension for one full semester (i.e., a fall or spring term). If extenuating circumstances exist, a student may appeal the suspension through the Academic Review Board process prior to being away from the University. If no extenuating circumstances exist or the Academic Review Board determines that a suspension stands, a student may petition for reinstatement after a semester of academic suspension and go through the Academic Review Board process.

Academic Review Board Process

Specific deadlines and instructions for Academic Review Board appeals are outlined in the letter that the student receives upon suspension. Please note that students are not automatically granted a hearing before the Academic Review Board. If a student is not granted a hearing, the suspension stands.

Students for whom an appeal is granted will come before the Academic Review Board to discuss their academic status. The Board will make one of the following decisions:

  1. The student is reinstated on continued probation and must follow specific requirements outlined in the reinstatement letter provided by the Academic Review Board after the hearing. See reinstatement information below.
  2. The suspension stands.
