What are the latest rules on academic probation and drop guidelines?
New policy is effective as of fall 2015.
Academic Probation and Deficiency
A. Academic Probation
A student at Purdue University shall be placed on academic probation if his/her fall or spring semester or cumulative GPA at the end of any fall or spring semester is less than a 2.0.
A student on academic probation shall be removed from that standing at the end of the first subsequent fall or spring semester in which he/she achieves semester and cumulative GPAs equal to or greater than 2.0.
Any grade change due to a reporting error will result in a recalculation of the GPA and determination of probation standing.
Academic standing is assessed during fall and spring semesters only.
B. Dropping of Students for Academic Deficiency
A student on academic probation shall be dropped from the University at the close of any fall or spring semester in which his/her semester and cumulative GPA is less than a 2.0.
Any grade change due to a reporting error will result in a recalculation of the index and determination of drop status.
A student who is academically dropped from the University for the first time is not eligible to enroll for at least one fall or spring semester. A student who is academically dropped for the second time is not eligible to enroll for at least one year.
A student dropped by this rule must apply to the appropriate office or readmission committee for the Purdue campus of choice. A fee is assessed for processing the readmission application (Board of Trustees Minutes, June 5-6, 1970). Readmission is not guaranteed, but any student who gains readmission is readmitted on probation and is subject to stipulations in effect as a condition of readmission.
