Placement on Academic Probation

A student is placed on academic probation if her cumulative average is less than 50 at the end of any regular semester. The semester in which the student is considered to be ‘on probation’ is the semester that immediately follows the semester in which the student has earned the grades leading to that placement.

For implementation purposes, the academic standing of a student is represented by two attributes:

(a) This attribute represents the student’s current academic status as follows:

– 0: clear status

– 1: student is currently on probation but was not on probation in the immediate preceding

regular semester

– 2: student is currently on probation and was on probation in the immediate preceding

regular semester

(b) This attribute represents the probation history of a student, i.e. the number of times that the

student has been placed on probation.

Removal of Probation

Probation is removed when the student attains a cumulative average of 50 or more. A student is off probation during the semester following the one in which such grades are earned. Probation should be removed within two regular semesters, after the student is placed on probation, or when the student completes her graduation requirements (see Graduation Requirements).
