Academic Probation, Suspension, Dismissal & Withdrawal
Students are placed on academic probation for one semester if, at the end of any given semester, the student’s cumulative grade point average (CGPA) falls below 2.00.
Also, students are placed on academic probation for one semester upon returning from academic suspension. Students on academic probation will be assigned to work closely the Office of the Student Services. Students may be required to take a reduced course load while on academic probation.
A student whose CGPA does not meet or exceed 2.00 at the end of the probationary semester, but whose semester GPA meets or exceeds 2.30, may be allowed to continue on probation for an additional semester.
A student who earns a CGPA of less than 1.00 in his/her first semester at Missional University may be subject to academic suspension at the end of that semester without a period of probation.
Probationary standing may only be cleared with grades earned at Missional University. A probationary student whose CGPA meets or exceeds 2.00 will be removed from probation.
Students are placed on academic suspension if, at the end of the probationary semester, the student’s CGPA does not meet or exceed 2.00. The student may be subject to academic suspension for a period of one semester.
A student on suspension for academic deficiency normally is readmitted to Missional University after one semester has lapsed. A suspended student must submit a letter requesting readmission. The Readmission Committee meets to consider these requests. Once the student is readmitted, the Office of the Registrar will send course and registration information to the student’s College e-mail address unless an alternative e-mail address has been provided.
A student who has been readmitted following a period of academic suspension will remain eligible to continue studies as long as his/her semester GPA for each semester meets or exceeds 2.30, even though his/her CGPA may be below the 2.00 requirement.
A student returning from academic suspension may be placed in non-credit remedial courses, at the discretion of the Department chair of the school of student’s chosen major.
Students may be subject to dismissal if they incur a second academic suspension.
