College Progression - Moving Forward
OSDS Advisors monitor the academic progress of their advisees and check their advisees' academic statuses at the end of each semester. A student's cumulative grade point average AND the number of P, W, and WE grades are considered in determining the student's status. There are four progression levels of academic status:
|Good Standing||Well done! Keep in regular contact with your Academic Advisor to stay on the right track.|
|Academic Warning||Occurs after a semester of not meeting a specific cumulative GPA and/or two or more grades of P, N, W, or WE. Students will need to bring up their cumulative GPA and/or demonstrate they are making satisfactory progress toward completion of their major degree (or freshman-year) courses.|
|Academic Probation||Occurs when a student has not been passing enough courses with at least a C or better and has fallen into academic difficulty. Students will need to improve their grades in order to reach "Good Standing" status to avoid risk of suspension from the University.|
|Academically No Longer Eligible||Occurs when a student has not demonstrated that they are making satisfactory progress toward completion of their major degree. They are in violation of this requirement and will not be allowed to enroll in College of Engineering courses if they have two consecutive semesters of unsatisfactory progress. A student who fails to satisfy one or more of the progression requirements, but who nonetheless meets the conditions for continued enrollment in the University, will be ineligible to re-enroll in the College of Engineering until an appeal is accepted by the College of Engineering. Once an appeal is accepted, requirements for continued enrollment appropriate to the individual situation are specified in a "Continuation Agreement" that is mutually agreed upon and signed by the student and his/her appropriate academic advisor.
A student may submitt an appeal to the OSDS Appeals Committee for reconsideration.
|Academic Suspension||Occurs when a student has been suspended by the University. Students must follow University guidelines for appeal. Readmission to the College of Engineering after a University Suspension is not automatic. An application for readmission must be made by the student and approved by the College/department. Students who are readmitted by the College of Engineering after a University Suspension must meet requirements for continued enrollment appropriate to their individual situation. These requirements are specified in a "Continuation Agreement" that is mutually agreed upon and signed by the student and his/her appropriate academic advisor. The consequences of failure to meet the requirements of the agreement may be articulated in the agreement itself. However, if these consequences are not included in the agreement, failure to meet the requirements will automatically result in the student's not being permitted to continue to enroll in College of Engineering courses.|
