Policies & Procedures

Academic Warning

A student whose semester grade point average (GPA) falls below a 2.0, but whose cumulative GPA is a 2.0 or higher, will be placed on academic warning.  Students on academic warning will be required to meet with their academic advisor before being able to register for classes.  A student will be advised of academic warning status by the Office of the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Undergraduate Programs.

Academic Probation
A student whose cumulative grade point average (GPA) falls below a 2.0 will be placed on probation.  Students on academic probation will be required to meet with their academic advisor before being able to register for classes.  The student may continue studies provided the student achieves a semester GPA of at least 2.0 for each semester while on probation.  Once the cumulative GPA is at least 2.0, the student will be removed from probationary status.  A student will be advised of probationary status and the possibility of dismissal by the Office of the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Undergraduate Programs.

Dismissal
A student on probation who has completed a minimum of 12 IUPUI grade point average (GPA) hours is subject to dismissal from the School if the student fails to attain a GPA of at least 2.0 in any two consecutive IUPUI semester (fall and spring), including the semester that the student was first placed on probation.

A student can also be dismissed from the School when, in the opinion of the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Undergraduate Programs in consultation with the student's major department, the student has ceased making progress in the degree program.  Examples of lack of progress may include, but are not limited to, average GPA in courses in the major below 2.0, multiple semesters with semester GPA below 2.0, and repeated failures in core courses in the curriculum.  Students in danger of dismissal due to failure to make academic progress will be required to meet with their academic advisor.

A student will be notified of dismissal by the Office of the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Undergraduate Programs.

Readmission
A student dismissed for the first time from the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology or another Purdue School must remain out of school at least one regular (fall or spring) semester.  During the semester out of school, the student may petition the School of Engineering and Technology for readmission.  A student dismissed for the second time must remain out of school at least two regular semesters (fall and spring), but may petition for readmission during the second semester out of school.  Readmission after a second dismissal is extremely rare.

A student readmitted will be informed by the Office of the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Undergraduate Programs.  The notification will specify any conditions and restrictions affecting readmission and continuance in the degree program.  Readmitted students will be placed on probation.  Readmitted students must earn a GPA of at least 2.0 each semester while on probation or they will be dismissed again.  Readmitted student will be removed from probation when their cumulative GPA is raised to 2.0.  Students may contact Susie Bradley susjbrad@iupui.edu for a Petition for Readmission.
