Academic Warning, Suspension, and Dismissal
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, a hold will be placed on the registration of subsequent semesters and the student must meet with their Academic Adviser 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 the student's campus email address.
Procedure for Academic Warning students
Complete the Academic Action Plan.
Submit your responses to the Academic Action Plan electronically (the form is emailed to the Advising Office) or complete the printable form and send it the Advising Office ([email protected]).
Discuss your situation/Academic Action Plan answers with the Advising Office.
LionPATH hold will be released.
Maintain contact with your assigned adviser regarding your academic progress.
Earn a 2.0 or higher semester GPA to continue to take classes while raising your cumulative GPA to a 2.0 or better to be removed from Academic Warning status.
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.
Procedure for Academic Suspension Students
While in academic suspension, students wait two semesters before returning to take classes (summer is classified as a semester).
Complete the Academic Action Plan while in academic suspension status or when ready to re-enroll to resume taking classes.

Complete re-enrollment form.
Register for classes after the re-enrollment process has been completed.
Maintain contact with your assigned adviser regarding your academic progress. Note: you are returning in academic warning status.
Earn a 2.0 or higher semester GPA to continue to take classes while raising your cumulative GPA to a 2.0 or better to be removed from academic warning status. Note: If your semester GPA is below a 2.0, you will move to academic dismissal and must wait four years and then may seek re-enrollment to the University by requesting an academic renewal.
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.
