Policies & Procedures


Academic Probation and Dismissal

Students, both those certified into the School of Education (including Direct Admits) and those admitted to a Teacher Education Program (TEP), are on academic probation when their cumulative grade point average is below 2.50. They will be required to meet with a School of Education academic advisor within 30 days of the beginning of the semester after their GPA falls below 2.50 to develop a formal, signed plan for improving their grade point average. These plans may include a timeline of up to one year. Students who are on academic probation may not be admitted to the Teacher Education Program (TEP) or become eligible for student teaching. Students’ academic progress will be monitored each subsequent semester, and once the cumulative grade point average is above 2.50, they will be removed from academic probation. If students are unable to raise their grade point average to 2.50 within twelve months of being placed on academic probation, they will be required to develop a revised plan with the assistance of an academic advisor and approved by the Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Studies. If no such plan can be developed, students will be dismissed from the School of Education. Students may petition the School of Education for readmission after one year, provided that they have raised their cumulative GPA to at least 2.5.
