Academic Warning and Academic Probation

Sometimes students can struggle academically as they seek to find balance between work, home, and school committments.  In the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts, your advisor will help you develop a plan to return to academic good standing. We are committed to doing everything we can to help you reach your full potential and achieve your academic goals.

University Academic Good Standing

Students in university academic good standing have a GPA of 2.0 or higher.  When a student falls below a cumulative GPA of 2.0, they are placed on academic warning or academic probation.    Academic standing is determined twice annually—in December after fall semester grades have posted, and in May after spring grades have posted. Grades earned during summer will affect GPA, but are not considered for academic standing purposes until the next review period. 


Academic Warning

College of Integrative Sciences and Arts students who does not achieve a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0  after completion of their first term of study are placed on academic warning. If a student does not achieve the minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 after one semester on academic warning, the student will be placed on probation for at least one additional term.


Academic Probation

If a student's minimum cumulative GPA falls below 2.0 in a term that is not the student's first term at ASU, the student will be placed on probation. Failure to return to good academic standing after being placed on probation may result in disqualification. 


What happens when you are on academic warning or academic probation?

A student on academic warning or academic probation is  permitted to enroll in classes.

All College of Integrative Sciences and Arts students who are not in good standing, are are required to complete the CISA Rising Scholars Online Workshop.  This workshop will provide additional information on academic standing status and help you explore strategies to return to good standing. 

Improved performance will help you earn either Good Standing or Continued Probation status. Students who achieve a cumulative GPA above 2.0 are considered in Good Standing. Students who achieve a semester GPA above a 2.0, but retain a cumulative ASU GPA below 2.0 are placed on Continued Probation.  Students who fail to achieve a semester or cumulative GPA  of 2.0 or higher are subject to disqualification from the university.

All students who are placed on Academic Warning or Academic Probation for at least one semester, must successfully complete UNI 220 Mindset Connections as a requirement of graduation.


What happens when you are disqualified?
If you have been disqualified from ASU, you may enroll in summer classes at ASU to improve your GPA and bring your cumulative ASU GPA back into good academic standing (2.0).   If you have had a fall or spring semester lapse in enrollment while on disqualification status, you will need to submit an application for readmission to ASU to enroll in summer classes or be considered for a future fall or spring enrollment.  For additional details on disqualification, visit
