Engineering Student Services Team
Many students face academic difficulty at some point in their college careers—you are not alone! There are many people across campus that are here to support you in your academic journey.
Students whose term, CPSLO, or Higher Ed GPAs fall below 2.0 will be placed on academic probation (AP). Being on academic probation causes many students (and supporters) to feel confused, overwhelmed, and stressed. If that's you, take a deep breath-we're here to help!
First, it helps to understand your status. The academic probation policy breaks down varying levels of severity into two statuses: Academic Probation Status and Disqualification Status. Be sure to read the difference between these statuses and learn more about which applies to you. Note that disqualification status does not automatically equate to dismissal from the university.
Students in the College of Engineering will be required to participate in a tailored intervention as a means of providing support and to promote student success. All students will receive an email stating exactly what they are required to do and the deadline for completing it.
Must meet with an advisor.
