SUSPENSION

Your academic standing is SUSPENSION if your cumulative GPA drops below a 2.0 under the following circumstances:

  1. Students placed on First Semester Warning who have less than a 2.0 cumulative GPA at the end of their second semester AND have less than a 2.0 second semester GPA are Suspended.
  2. Continuing students on Probation who earn less than a 2.0 cumulative GPA are Suspended.

If either of these situations applies to you, a Suspension hold has been placed on your record, and you will receive a SOLAR Message/email from the Division of Undergraduate Education.
