Academic Probation

See the 2018-2019 Catalog

A student is placed on probation at the end of any semester when the Shepherd and/or overall average falls below 2.0.

The student on academic probation is no longer in good academic standing, but is allowed to continue coursework while improving the GPA.

The student who begins a semester on probation and withdraws from the university after the first five weeks of the semester will be suspended through the end of the next regular semester and may apply for readmission by completing an application for admission.

To be removed from probation and return to good academic standing, a student must attain BOTH a 2.0 Shepherd University GPA and a cumulative GPA (including coursework attempted at other institutions).
