To be in good standing, undergraduate students must have earned a GPA of 2.0 or higher; students who fall below this GPA threshold will be placed on academic probation. Students with 6 or more attempted semester hours who have not completed 67% of their attempted credit hours must meet with their academic advisor to register for classes.
Scholastic action is determined on the basis of cumulative GPA. When a student's cumulative GPA drops below 2.0, the registrar takes scholastic action by placing the student on probation. Whenever students subsequently attain a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0, they are removed from probation. Students who are on probation must have their advisor's approval of their course selection before they register for classes. The student's course load may be limited if the advisor feels such a restriction is necessary. The advisor may also require the student to complete counseling, remedial work, and course repeats; restrict enrollment; and complete other steps. Download Probation Contract (PDF).
Students who remain on probation for two terms may be dismissed from the university for unsatisfactory academic performance. Community college partnerships are available to provide pathways for students who wish to begin their studies at community college and complete their bachelor’s degree at Wright State.
