Probation, Suspension, Dismissal Policies
Probation: Students who do not maintain minimum academic requirements will, at the end of the fall, spring, or summer term in which they fail to meet minimum standards (2.0 or higher GPA on both UND and cumulative hours), be placed on Academic Probation. An advisor hold is placed on the student’s record (file) and will be removed when the student visits with their academic advisor.
Suspension: A student on Academic Probation who earns less than a 2.00 term GPA at the end of the semester of probation is considered not to be making academic progress and will be suspended. Suspended students may apply to return to the University after one semester’s absence. All suspended students must seek reinstatement through the Office of Academic Advisement. The Associate Dean may specify enrollment stipulations at the time of reinstatement. Under extenuating circumstances suspended students may seek immediate reinstatement without leaving the University for one academic semester.
Dismissal: After the second suspension, failure to achieve minimum academic standards will result in the student being dismissed from the University with no further opportunity to enroll at the undergraduate level. Students may appeal dismissal to the University Senate Student Academic Standards Committee.
Suspension and dismissal are permanently recorded on the student’s transcript.
