Probation and Dismissal at Idaho State University

Probation & Dismissal Policy

To maintain “academic satisfactory progress” and avoid academic probation, an undergraduate student who has completed 25 or fewer credits (including transfer credits) must maintain a minimum Idaho State University GPA of 1.75 and an undergraduate student with 26 or more credits must maintain an Idaho State University GPA of 2.0.

Scholastic Probation Scale

Credits Attempted (Including Transfer Credits) Minimum ISU GPA
1 - 25 1.75
26+ 2.00

At the end of any semester, undergraduate students whose cumulative Idaho State University GPA does not meet the minimum requirements will be placed on Academic Warning, limited to 13 credits for the next semester of attendance, and required to complete the online probation workshop.

Undergraduate students on Academic Warning who do not earn a 2.00 semester GPA (and their cumulative ISU GPA does not meet minimum requirements) will be placed on Probation One, limited to 9 credits for the next semester of attendance, required to complete the online probation workshop, and required to meet with their academic advisor of record prior to registering for classes.

Undergraduate students on Probation One who do not earn a 2.00 semester GPA (and their cumulative ISU GPA does not meet minimum requirements) will be placed on Probation Two, limited to 6 credits for the next semester of attendance, required to complete the online probation workshop, and required to meet with their academic advisor of record prior to registering for classes.

Undergraduate students on Academic Warning, Probation One, or Probation Two who attain a semester GPA of 2.0 or higher, but whose cumulative ISU GPA is still below the minimum required for their class level, will continue on Academic Warning or Probation (One or Two) with the corresponding credit limitation of 13, 9, or 6.

Undergraduate students on Academic Warning, Probation One, or Probation Two who attain a cumulative ISU GPA higher than the minimum required for their class level are automatically removed from warning or probation.

Undergraduate students on Probation Two will be dismissed from the University if they obtain a semester GPA of less than 2.0 (and their cumulative ISU GPA does not meet minimum requirements) unless the undergraduate student is a freshman and has not attempted 12 or more Idaho State University credits (not including withdrawals).

Information on readmission after academic dismissal can be found in the Undergraduate catalog.
