What is Academic Probation? What is Academic Warning? What do I need to know about ISU policies?

Academic Probation: There are three levels of Academic Probation

Academic Warning is a university designation that is used when a student in Good Standing does not achieve a semester GPA of 2.0 (or have a cumulative ISU GPA of 2.0). Undergraduate students on Academic Warming who do not achieve a 2.0 GPA for the semester (or have a cumulative ISU GPA of 2.0) are placed on Probation One.

Probation One Is a university designation that is used when a student on Academic Warning does not achieve a semester GPA of 2.0 (or have a cumulative ISU GPA of 2.0). Students placed on Probation One are limited to 9 credits for the next semester in attendance and must achieve a semester GPA of 2.0 (or have a cumulative ISU GPA of 2.0) in order to avoid being place on Probation Two.

Probation Two is a university designation that is used when a student on Probation One does not achieve a 2.0 GPA for the semester (or have a cumulative ISU GPA of 2.0). Students placed on Probation Two are limited to 6 credits for the next semester in attendance and must achieve a semester GPA of 2.0 (or have a cumulative ISU GPA of 2.0) in order to avoid being dismissed from Idaho State University.

Academic Dismissal occurs when undergraduate students on Probation Two does not achieve a 2.0 GPA for the semester (or have a cumulative GPA of 2.0). Dismissed students are not allowed re-entry unless they successfully petition for readmission. Readmission requires a detailed and documented explanation of circumstances and evidence of completed corrective measures.

Take note:

Earn a C average for each semester that you are on probation. Be very cautious and deliberate when choosing your courses. Seek help from an advisor.
