Academic Standing

Critical Probation

Under special circumstances, SPEA students may be placed on critical probation. If the student is given the opportunity to enroll under critical probation, SPEA will establish strict conditions that must be met before that student will be allowed to register for future classes.

Students who fail to return to good standing at the conclusion of critical probation may be dismissed from the school.
