Walsh University Undergraduate Catalog 2012-2013
Up one level
A minimum overall grade point average of 2.0 is considered good academic standing for students with sophomore, junior, or senior status. Freshmen are considered to be in good academic standing with a 1.75 overall grade point average.
Any student who is under the grade point average required for good academic standing for his/her class will be placed on academic probation at the end of the current semester. Probationary students are required to attend a minimum of five counseling sessions coordinated through the Counseling Services office. Failure to initiate counseling sessions will result in a registration hold.
Probationary students also are required to take the study skills course (GE 110) unless they have successfully completed it while at Walsh University. In this case they must complete the tutoring part of this course. Freshman and Sophomore probation students are supervised by the Director of Academic Assistance. Junior and Seniors on probation are supervised by the Director of Advising.
A student placed on academic probation who shows lack of progress at the end of the next completed semester will be placed on continued probation, EXCEPT in cases where the semester grade point average was 1.00 or below. In this case, the student will be subject to academic suspension or dismissal. Students who are on continuing probation for 2 semesters can be subject to suspension.
Under academic suspension, the student is ineligible to return until at least one semester (excluding summer) has passed and a minimum of six semester hours have been completed at another institution with a grade of "C" or higher. The Walsh University School for Professional Studies Program does not count as another institution.
Under academic dismissal, the student is ineligible to return until three years have passed. Students receiving academic suspension or dismissal and experiencing extenuating circumstances may appeal this decision by following the instructions stated in their academic standing letter.
Registrations for subsequent semesters will be cancelled for all students who have been suspended or dismissed.
