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 (at the end of the Fall 2012 term or later) 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 block has been placed on your record, and you will receive a SOLAR Message/email from the Office of Undergraduate Academic Affairs.

If your Suspension reflects an error in grade reporting or unreported grades, you must arrange to have your instructor(s) submit written evidence on department letterhead that these problems will be corrected. This information may be submitted to the Committee on Academic Standing and Appeals (CASA), Undergraduate Academic Affairs, E-3310 Melville Library, Stony Brook, NY 11794-3351, no later than 5:00 p.m., Thursday, June 12, 2014.
