A student is placed on academic probation when their cumulative GPA falls below a 2.0/4.0. To avoid academic dismissal from the University, a student on probation must return to good standing by the end of the semester. If their cumulative GPA ever falls below the required 2.0 in the future, the student will be academically dismissed from the University.
