Academic Probation

A department chair may request that the dean of the Graduate School and Continuing Studies place a student on academic probation. A student may be placed on academic probation for unsatisfactory performance in any area of required academic activity, such as coursework, comprehensive or qualifying examinations, field work, clinical, practicum, internship, or any applied area of professional study or failure to maintain minimum standards of scholarship.

A request for academic probation may only follow discussion of unsatisfactory performance with the student and must be accompanied a written letter to the student from the department, clearly specifying the conditions to be met and the time in which they are to be met.

A student is not officially on probation until the dean of the Graduate School and Continuing Studies approves the department's request.

When probationary requirements are met, the department chair should inform the dean of the Graduate School and Continuing Studies, who will inform the student. Not meeting the requirements for removal of academic probation within the specified time may be grounds for dismissal from the program.
