What is Academic Probation? What is Academic Warning? What do I need to know about ESU policies?

Academic Probation: There are three levels of Academic Probation

    • Academic Warning
    • Academic Probation
    • Continued Probation

Academic Warning: A university designation that is used when a student does not achieve the required minimum grade point average (GPA). Failure to meet the required GPA indicates that the student is not making satisfactory academic progress. The required GPA for ESU students is as follows:

  • Freshmen (29 or fewer credits) must maintain a 1.80 ESU cumulative GPA to be in good academic standing.
  • Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors (30 or more credits) must maintain a 2.00 ISU cumulative GPA to be in good academic standing.

Students who fall below the minimum levels as noted above, are placed on Academic Warning. Students have one semester to reach the qualitative and pace (quantitative) standards required for satisfactory academic progress. Students who receive an academic warning are encouraged to enroll in no more than 15 credit hours for the upcoming semester.

Undergraduate students on Academic Warning who do not achieve a 2.0 GPA for the semester (or achieve a cumulative ESU GPA that meets minimum requirements as outlined above) are placed on Academic Probation.

Academic Probation: A university designation that is used when a student on Academic Warning does not achieve a semester GPA of 2.0 (or have a cumulative ESU GPA that meets minimum requirements as outlined above). Students placed on Academic Probation must achieve a semester GPA of 2.0 (or meet minimum cumulative ESU GPA requirements as outlined above) in order to avoid financial aid suspension.

Continued Probation: A university designation that is used when a student on Academic Probation has achieved the required GPA for the semester but has not achieved a 2.0 cumulative GPA (or achieve a cumulative ESU GPA that meets minimum requirements as outlined above). Students placed on Continued Probation must achieve a cumulative GPA of 2.0 (or meet minimum cumulative ESU GPA requirements as outlined above) in order to avoid Required Withdrawal from Emporia State University.

Required Withdrawal occurs when a student fails to achieve a minimum 2.00 GPA the following semester and fails to achieve the required cumulative GPA. If a student is required to withdraw and wishes to seek reinstatement, s/he must petition to return to the University. Students may access the appeal form from the Registration website or the Student Advising Center website.

Take note:

Earn a C average for each semester that you are on probation. Be very cautious and deliberate when choosing your courses. Seek help from an advisor.
