What is academic probation?

Undergraduate Academic Probation and Suspension


Academic probation is a warning that a student's academic performance is below the minimum requirements for good academic standing and for graduation.


A student on probation who fails to earn a term grade point average of 2.0 or higher will be suspended. A student’s first academic suspension will be for one semester/term; the second suspension will be for two semesters/terms; and a third suspension will be for an indefinite period.

Suspension Period Regulations

Courses completed at any institution during a suspension period will not be accepted for credit. Students placed on indefinite suspension may petition for readmission following a period of twelve months.

Readmission after Suspension

A student returning after a suspension will be readmitted on probation. A student must earn or maintain a 2.0 average or higher or be placed on probation. A student on probation is limited to 13 semester hours (seven semester hours for accelerated terms) and must earn a minimum of a 2.0 average each subsequent term until the overall grade point average reaches the 2.0 level. Failure to meet the 2.0 term/semester GPA will result in further suspension. Suspension from all other colleges will be honored, including all Troy University locations.
