Academic Probation

As a student at IUPUC, you may be placed on probation any time your cumulative grade point average (GPA) falls below the standards that your division or program has established for good academic standing.

Probation Policy for Continuing Students

If you are a continuing student, you will be placed on probation if your cumulative GPA falls below your division or program GPA of good standing. Individual divisions and programs vary in their policies. Contact the division offering your program for additional information on probation.

  • At IUPUC, a 2.0 cumulative GPA is the minimum necessary to be considered in good academic standing. If you are below this GPA, you are not making progress toward degree completion and are subject to dismissal from the university.
  • If your cumulative GPA falls below a 2.0, you will be placed on probation. You will be informed by letter of your probationary status. You may continue on probation when your semester GPA is above a 2.0 but your cumulative GPA is below a 2.0.
  • You will be removed from their probationary status once your cumulative GPA is above 2.0.

Probation/Dismissal Policy for Beginning Students

  • If you are a beginning student who attempted 12 or more credit hours your first semester (including Ws), you must obtain at least a 1.0 GPA at the end of your first semester or you will be dismissed. This applies even if your first semester is summer.
  • If you withdraw from all courses, you are exempt from this policy.
