Academic performance in college is different than high school. At Cleveland State all undergraduate students must meet two criterion to be in good academic standing:
· Maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0
· Successfully complete 67% of credit hours attempted
If a student fails to meet either of these criterion, there are three tiers of academic standing that will result: Academic Warning, Academic Probation, and Academic Suspension. Students are strongly encouraged to check with their academic advisor at the end of each semester regarding academic standing.
HOW TO CHECK YOUR ACADEMIC STANDING
At the end of each semester, a student’s current academic standing is posted on their undergraduate transcripts in CampusNet. The University also notifies students who are currently on academic warning or probation at the end of each semester.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE ON ACADEMIC WARNING OR PROBATION
If a student is on academic warning or probation, the most important thing is for them to begin to work on addressing the issue as soon as possible. Some strategies to follow include:
· Contact their advisor and/or schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
· Develop a plan with their advisor as soon as possible to get back on track.
· Use available resources to improve academic performance, such as tutoring, success coaching, study groups, Supplemental Instruction, etc.
· Use the Repeat Course policy as appropriate to raise your GPA.
