Probationary status is a warning that improved academic performance is required. If the probation requirements are not met in the following semester, the student is subject to drop rules. The minimum academic goal of any student should be to keep his or her GPA for any semester above 2.00.

NOTE: application of the grade replacement policy in general does not affect probation decisions retroactively. Grade replacement has the purpose to adjust the cumulative GPA but by itself it does not improve an academic weakness. 

A detailed description of the campus probation regulations appears in the Student Code .

The rules are outlined here for your convenience:
