A Caution About Academic Probation
Academic probation is a warning for when a student’s performance and grades fall below the institution’s requirements.
Once you are in Academic Probation there are many consequences that come of it. You become ineligible to participate in sports and hold any office or representative position. This can also affect you by possible reduction of financial aid. If you continue to be academically inadequate then you will be dismissed from the college or university.
In order to avoid Academic Probation, you must receive no grade lower than a C, attend class, communicate with your teachers and academic advisor, and maintain an overall GPA of at least 2.0.
To get out of Academic Probation the first thing you have to do is go talk to your advisor or counselor in order You will need to improve your GPA to at least a 2.0. To do this you will likely retake a course you received a letter grade of D or F and attend tutoring or office hours. You will also need to make sure that you receive a letter grade of C or higher for all your classes.
