Agenda for the GCSU University Senate (US) Scheduled Meeting
Monday, September 28, 2009
A&S Room 2-72 12:30 pm
Text: We propose the following revision to the undergraduate
Academic Standing Policy: A student will remain on academic probation
for more than one semester if
1) the student is enrolled in eight or fewer hours for the term in which he or she is on academic probation, and
2) the student earns grades of C or higher in all classes in which he or she enrolled, and
3) the student's institutional GPA remains under the required level for good standing.
In this case, the student will remain on academic probation (with restricted enrollment) and not proceed to academic dismissal.
Note: This change would apply only to those students on the new(er) academic standing rules, which went into effect in Fall 2006. Students on academic probation who enroll in eight or fewer hours would still be able to proceed to good standing if their institutional GPA rises to the level required for good standing. This policy would go into effect with the 2010-2011 catalog, and would be first applied at the end of Summer 2010.
Motion Text: A graduate student will be placed on graduate academic probation if the student's institutional graduate grade point average falls below a 3.00 at any point during their graduate studies. Each department that has a graduate program will develop a policy for progression in its graduate program, which it will publish in the Graduate Catalog. Students who fail to meet the requirements for progression in the graduate program will be placed on graduate academic dismissal, and will not be allowed to continue in the graduate program. All department decisions to place a student on graduate academic dismissal must be filed with the Registrar before the end of the add/drop period of the following semester of enrollment. In order to be considered for readmission to the program, the student must successfully petition the graduate program coordinator and the Dean of the College in which his or her program resides.
