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: A university designation that is used when a student does not achieve the required minimum grade point average (GPA). Failure to meet the required GPA indicates that the student is not making satisfactory academic progress. The required GPA for ISU students is as follows:

Students who fall below the minimum levels as noted above, are placed on Academic Warning and limited to 13 credits for the next semester in attendance.

Undergraduate students on Academic Warning who do not achieve a 2.0 GPA for the semester (or achieve a cumulative ISU GPA that meets minimum requirements as outlined above) are placed on Probation One.

Probation One: 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 that meets minimum requirements as outlined above). 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 meet minimum cumulative ISU GPA requirements as outlined above) in order to avoid being place on Probation Two.

Probation Two: A university designation that is used when a student on Probation One does not achieve a 2.0 GPA for the semester (or achieve a cumulative ISU GPA that meets minimum requirements as outlined above). 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 meet minimum cumulative ISU GPA requirements as outlined above) in order to avoid being dismissed from Idaho State University.

Academic Dismissal occurs when undergraduate students on Probation Two obtain a semester GPA of less than 2.0 (and their cumulative ISU GPA does not meet minimum requirements as outlined above) unless the undergraduate student is a freshman and has not attempted 12 or more Idaho State University credits (not including withdrawals).

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.
