Academic Probation

As a student on academic probation you must return to academic good standing by the end of the semester. If you do not, you will be academically dismissed from the University.

University College offers a variety of programs and services for students who are on academic probation — coordinated through Project Success. Participation in Project Success is required. If you are on Academic Probation, the Reinstatement Committee will evaluate your participation and utilization of the following services if you are dismissed from the University, and at any time, request to be reinstated.

As a student on Academic Probation you are required to:

  • Participate in Project Success. Students participate in Project Success based upon their probation classification. These include New Start Probation, First Time Probation and Continued Probation. 
  • Meet with Your Academic Advisor. Students on Academic Probation must meet with their Academic Advisor. Failure to do so may result in a registration block. If your major has been recently changed to Undeclared Student as a result of dismissal, you need to contact the Academic Advisement Center at (309) 438-7604 to start the process of having an advisor assigned to you. 
  • Evaluate your Course Load. Students on academic probation are strongly encouraged to enroll in a maximum of 12-14 hours. Discuss your course load with your Academic Advisor. Success in your classes can be accomplished by reducing your course load to a manageable number of hours. 
  • Utilize appropriate campus resources that could assist you in achieving academic success.
  • Check your Midterm Grades, which are posted the 8th week of the semester on
