impact does being on academic probation have for me?
Students can not be dropped by Purdue University for academic
reasons because of one bad semester. They can be dropped if
they are on academic probation and have a second bad semester.
So the biggest impact of being on probation is that a student
is in danger of being dropped by the university. In addition,
most Purdue colleges and schools will not allow students to
CODO in if they are on academic probation. This delay in CODOing
can delay a student’s academic progress and graduation
I be dropped from school if I am on academic probation two
semesters in a row?
No, not necessarily. Students can remain on academic probation
for multiple semesters without getting dropped if their graduation
index (cumulative GPA) doesn’t drop below the minimum
level set by the university. However, this minimum graduation
index gets higher as a student’s classification increases,
so the longer a student remains on academic probation the
greater the likelihood that he/she will get dropped because
of bad grades.
Students are placed on academic probation if their semester
index (GPA) and/or graduation index (cumulative GPA) falls
below the minimum levels set by the university for students
with their classification.
In order to get off of academic probation students need to
raise their semester index (GPA) and/or graduation index (cumulative
GPA) above the minimum level set by the university for students
with their classification. While grades from summer school classes
do affect a student's graduation index, a student can only get off of academic probation at the end of fall or spring semesters.
Students come to USP and Purdue University in order to find
out what major is right for them, earn their degree, and move
on. No one wants to get on academic probation or be dropped.
We in USP want all of our students to be successful, and we
have designed Laying Tracks to help students improve their
academic performance and get off of probation.
Laying Tracks is a relatively new program, and statistics
on its impact are still being gathered and analyzed. However,
there is significant anecdotal evidence that students who
participate in Laying Tracks are more likely to improve their
grades and get off of academic probation than students who
