IUPUI Policy for Undergraduate Probation, Dismissal and Reinstatement

 

General

  1. This policy affects undergraduate students only.
  2. Academic units may establish policies for probation, dismissal and reinstatement that are more restrictive than provisions outlined by this policy.
  3. Academic units are encouraged to clearly explain their probation, dismissal and reinstatement policies in programmatic materials.
  4. Students may be academically released from a particular program if they do not make consistent and appropriate academic progress relevant to their fields of study. The decision to release is left to the discretion of the appropriate officer in the school.
  5. The academic requirements for probation, dismissal and reinstatement detailed by this policy take precedent over qualification for student financial aid and/or maintaining student visa status.
  6. To ensure equity between inter-campus transfer students and transfer students from outside the IU system, only IUPUI grades will be considered in determining probation and dismissal.
  7. Dismissal is a campus-level action and may be invoked only by the standards noted below. Students not meeting the requirements specified will generally be released by their schools, but not dismissed by the campus.
  8. By signing the reinstatement petition, the student agrees to meet with an academic advisor and meet all requirements stipulated by the school.
  9. Academic units are encouraged to recommend steps to enhance the studentsí chances of readmission, such as attending reinstatement workshops, removing grades of incomplete, undertaking assessment of their academic problems, and providing evidence of their ability to do successful academic work upon their reinstatement to IUPUI.
  10. Readmission after a second dismissal is extremely rare.

 

Probation

  1. Students whose Indiana University cumulative grade point average (GPA) falls below a 2.0 will be placed on probation. Students will be informed of the probationary status by letter.
  2. Students may be continued on probation when the semester GPA is at least a 2.0 but the Indiana University cumulative GPA is below a 2.0.
  3. Students will be removed from probationary status once the Indiana University cumulative GPA is at least 2.0.

Dismissal

  1. Students on probation who have completed a minimum of 12 IUPUI GPA hours are subject to dismissal if they fail to attain a GPA of at least 2.0 in any two consecutive semesters (fall and spring) and the Indiana University cumulative GPA is below 2.0.
  2. Students who are dismissed for the first time cannot enroll until one regular (fall or spring) semester has elapsed since dismissal and must petition by the established deadlines to be reinstated.
  3. Students dismissed two or more times must remain out of school for the next two consecutive regular (fall and spring) semesters and petition by the established deadlines to be reinstated.

 

Reinstatement

  1. Reinstatement will be the decision of the academic unit to which the students are petitioning.
  2. Students who are reinstated will be classified as probationary students until the Indiana University cumulative GPA is at least 2.0. During the first regularly enrolled term on probation, the student must achieve a semester GPA of at least 2.3. In each subsequent semester on probation, the student must achieve a semester GPA of at least 2.0. Failure to meet the semester GPA requirement while on probation will result in dismissal.
