Dismissal

Students whose academic performance indicates a limited chance of obtaining the minimum grades required for graduation will be subject to dismissal from the university.  Please read the University policy on Dismissal in the Kent State catalog.

The Provost may dismiss:

  1. Students on probation if the student's cumulative grade point average (GPA) is within the following ranges*:
    1. 16-29 GPA hours: below 1.50 cumulative GPA
    2. 30-59 GPA hours: below 1.70 cumulative GPA
    3. 60-89 GPA hours: below 1.80 cumulative GPA
    4. 90 or more GPA hours: below 1.90 cumulative GPA
  2. A student who fails to make adequate progress toward completion of the program of study (including, but not limited to, excessive complete term withdrawals, course withdrawals or NF/SF grades).

A student who is dismissed should expect to be away from the university for a minimum 12 consecutive months.  A dismissed student may not register for any coursework at any campus of Kent State University.  The notation of academic dismissal will be printed on the student's official transcript.

Given the serious nature of dismissal, students are strongly encouraged to keep their contact information up-to-date in FlashLine and to monitor their Kent State email account, the official University means of communication.  Further information on dismissal is available in the University catalog or by consulting your College/campus advising office.
