The purpose of this Procedure is to articulate the process and standards for reviewing the academic standing of undergraduate students consistent with the Undergraduate Academic Standing Policy and MnSCU Board Policy 2.9
After the deadline for posting grades at the end of each fall, spring, and summer semester, the University will review the academic standing of each student registered for that semester.
Students who are placed on academic warning, probation or suspension are notified by email from the Academic Support Center. The email is sent to the student’s University-assigned email address. Students are responsible for monitoring their official university email for messages. Claims of lack of notice or knowledge of the policy will not be grounds for exceptions to the academic standing standards and requirements.
Academic warning, probation and suspension holds are placed after the grading period at the end of each semester, including summer. Students are notified by email from the Academic Support Center. The email is sent to the student’s University-assigned email address. Students are responsible for monitoring their official university email for messages.
Completion or lack thereof, to fulfill the above requirements will be considered when reviewing an academic suspension appeal.
Students on academic warning at the beginning of a term who do not meet the minimum cumulative GPA and/or cumulative completion rate at the end of the term will be suspended. For some students on Academic Warning it will not be mathematically possible to raise their GPA or percent completion above the cumulative requirements. Therefore, students who earn a semester GPA of 2.0 or higher AND a semester percent completion rate of 66.667% or higher will be approved to return for the following term.
If a student’s status changes, e.g. through a change in grade or completion of an Incomplete, before the last day to drop/add then their academic status will be removed or end-dated. Changes to an academic standing will not be made after the last day to drop/add, except to correct university error.
Students who think there should be a change in their status should contact the Academic Support Center.
