Academic Warning and Academic Probation

Home / Resources / 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

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


Academic Probation

If a student's minimum cumulative GPA first 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 considered in conditional good standing and is permitted to enroll.

All College of Integrative Sciences and Arts students who are not in good standing, are are required to meet with an academic advisor and complete an Academic Success Agreement.  During your appointment, your advisor will go over your your prior semester, discussyour  academic standing status, possibly make adjustments to your course schedule 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 above 2.0 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
