      Good Academic Standing

      Academic Probation

      A list of students will be provided to a dean or campus president who have completed

      at least 12 credits and have a cumulative GPA that falls below 2.00 (4.00 scale).

      -     The dean or campus president will place such students on academic probation.

      -     Only the dean or campus president may remove a student from academic

            probation.

      Academic Suspension

      A student who has been on academic probation for a period of time designated by

      school/campus policy, is liable to suspension, and restricted from registering in the

      school or regional campus that placed him on academic probation.

      -     The student may be allowed to transfer to another school or campus of the

            University.

       Academic Dismissal

      A student is not allowed to continue attendance in the school or regional campus that

      placed them on academic probation.

      -     The student may be allowed to transfer to another school or campus of the
