Due to modified campus operations during the Spring 2020 semester, students falling below the suspension thresholds were not suspended at the conclusion of Spring 2020. Any students who would have been suspended at the end of the Spring 2020 semester were given until the conclusion of the Fall 2020 term to improve their grade point average in order to avoid suspension (see GPA requirements here). However, due to the current modified campus operations, those students will now be given until the conclusion of Spring 2021 to improve their grade point average in order to avoid suspension.
Fall 2020 final grades will be officially posted by Wednesday, November 25, 2020 and all students falling below the suspension threshold will be placed only on Academic Probation. Official notifications regarding academic standing will be sent by campus email.
Suspension Appeals Process
Students may submit an Appeal of Suspension to the Suspension Appeals Committee, which includes representation from academic and student affairs, within 10 business days following notification of suspension. Appeals of suspension are not automatically granted. Generally, suspension appeals are only approved when the student is able to sufficiently demonstrate that his/her academic performance suffered as a result of factors outside the student’s control and/or the student has shown significant academic progress since falling below the suspension threshold.
Students who are suspended at the conclusion of the Spring 2021 semester are eligible to submit a suspension appeal once the official email notification has been delivered. Students who have been suspended are strongly encouraged to contact their Academic Advising Center to discuss all options regarding their academic deficiency prior to submitting an appeal (see Advising Center links below). Advising staff are a valuable resource that can assist with achieving academic success.
