Maintaining adequate progress for a degree is defined by meeting a 2.00 cumulative GPA (CGPA). Students who do not maintain a 2.00 CGPA move into a status of Academic Warning. While on Academic Warning you will have a hold placed on the registration of subsequent semesters and must meet with the Student Advocacy Manager to remove this Academic Warning Hold. Students in Academic Warning are not eligible for late registration. All notifications concerning the hold will be sent to your campus email address.
Meeting with the Student Advocacy Manager to Release Your Academic Warning Hold
Academic Warning is not a punishment or the end of your academic career. The hold is a notification that it is time to seek help in taking an active approach to improve your academics. During the required meeting, you may be asked to:
- Reflect on challenges that led to the warning
- Discuss campus resources
- Understand GPA, grades, and policies
- Develop a plan for success
- Schedule follow-up meeting(s)
Academic Suspension and Dismissal
You will be academically suspended from the University if you earn less than a 2.00 semester grade-point average while on Academic Warning. Academic Suspension prevents enrollment at PSU for a minimum of two semesters.
If you have been placed on academic suspension one time and fail to achieve at least a 2.00 semester GPA you will be academically dismissed. After a period of four calendar years, academically dismissed students may seek re-enrollment to the University by requesting academic renewal.
Re-enrollment after Academic Warning, Suspension, or Dismissal
Students seeking re-enrollment will need to contact Sophia McCleaf, Academic Advising Manager, by the following deadlines. For fall semester between January and March, spring semester between May and July, and summer semester between September - November.
