Academic Probation

Exploratory Students on
Academic Probation or Semester Warning
Summer and Fall 2014 Registration Restrictions

In order to be eligible to register for summer and/or fall 2014 classes, students on Academic Probation or Semester Warning must complete the following 3 requirements.  Failure to do so can result in a delay to timely future course registration.

  1. Recalculating Your Route/Save My Semester

    The initial workshop requirement was to attend a “Recalculating Your Route” workshop, however those workshops are no longer available.  If you did not attend a "Recalculating Your Route" workshop, then you will need to register for a "Save My Semester" workshop available March 6-14.  Please register TODAY to ensure that you can select a session that works with your schedule.  Complete and retain the worksheet provided during the session.

  2. Academic Advising Appointment

    Schedule and attend an appointment with your assigned academic advisor between February 4 and 21 to discuss success strategies for the term.  Bring your completed worksheet from “Recalculating Your Route” or "Save My Semester" to review at this time.  Please do not wait until the deadline to schedule your appointment.  Appointments can take up to two weeks in advance to be scheduled.  This appointment is NOT for fall 2014 course planning, although summer 2014 courses may be discussed at this time.

  3. Summer/Fall 2014 Registration Advising Appointment

    Schedule and attend a second appointment with your assigned academic advisor to plan your fall 2014 courses prior to your registration date.  Summer registration begins February 24.  Fall registration information is based on your credit hours.  The "My Time to Register" schedule can be found here.

What is Academic Probation?

Students who fail to maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.000 will be placed on academic probation. This probation signifies that the cumulative performance is below the minimum university requirement for graduation. Probation is an emphatic warning to the students that the quality of their academic performance must improve if they are to obtain the minimum grades required for graduation. Students on probation must show considerable improvement in their academic work or they will be dismissed from the university. Students on probation must reduce their course load to 15 hours and may receive a prescription from the dean of their college or campus that they further reduce their hours carried until removed from probation. The students also should reduce participation in social and extracurricular activities. Students are removed from probation only when they have achieved a minimum 2.000 cumulative GPA. Students on probation will be notified by their dean’s office. In addition, the following students will be placed on probation: 

  1. Students reinstated to the university after being dismissed because of poor scholarship.

  2. Transfer students whose cumulative records at all previous institutions do not meet the minimum grade point average requirements of Kent State University.

What is Semester Warning?

Students with a minimum 2.000 cumulative GPA who earn a semester GPA of less the 2.000 in any given semester will be placed on Semester Warning.
