Probation, Dismissal, Reinstatement Before Admission

Probation, Dismissal, and Reinstatement

Before Admission to Teacher Education Program

Candidates may be placed on probation or be dismissed at any point in the program when the academic criteria for education candidates and for continuing in the Teacher Education Program as outlined in the following sections are not met. Candidates may also be dismissed if the required artifacts are not submitted or if the artifacts provide evidence that candidates are not meeting standards nor making progress toward meeting standards.

Probation and Dismissal
Satisfactory Academic Progress

A student whose cumulative grade point average (CGPA) is 2.0 or higher is considered to be making satisfactory academic progress at IU South Bend.


A student who has completed one or more IU South Bend GPA hours and has a CGPA below 2.0 is placed on probation. A probationary student remains on probation until the CGPA reaches 2.0 or higher.

Probation with Impact

A student who is on probation and fails to achieve a semester (fall, spring, or combined summer sessions) GPA of at least 2.0 will be placed on probation with impact. Academic units may impose additional enrollment restrictions on such students (e.g. limited to half-time enrollment).


A student who is on probation with impact and fails to achieve a semester (fall, spring, or combined summer sessions) GPA of at least 2.0 will be dismissed from the university. Students who are dismissed for the first time cannot enroll until one regular (fall or spring) semester has elapsed and must petition by the established deadline to be reinstated. Students who are dismissed multiple times must remain out of the university for at least two regular semesters and must petition by the established deadline to be reinstated.


Reinstatement will be the decision of the academic unit to which the student petitions. A student who is reinstated will be on probation with impact until the CGPA reaches 2.0 or higher.

Appeal and Readmission

A candidate may follow the issues resolution process to be readmitted to the School of Education. Once dismissed, the candidate must wait for at least one fall or one spring semester before applying for readmission. The deadlines for submitting the Issues Resolution form to the Office of Education Student Services are as follows:

Semester | Date
Spring | October 1
Fall | June 1
Summer | March 1

If the candidate is readmitted to the School of Education, an academic contract with the academic advisor must be signed. If the candidate does not meet the terms of the contract, dismissal from the School of Education will result.
