What is Academic Probation?

Academic probation is a warning that a student's performance falls below the requirement for good academic standing. All UD students with an IU CGPA below a 2.0 are placed on some form of academic probation. The type of probation a student is on (probation vs. critical probation) is based on the student's IU CGPA and class standing (in other words, credit hours). When a student is on Critical Probation the student is in danger of dismissal unless the student gets a Cumulative GPA of a 2.0 or a semester GPA of a 2.5 in the next term. In order to get back into good standing a student needs to raise his or her GPA to a 2.0 or above.

UD and theStudent Academic Center coordinate efforts to provide support and services to students on Academic Probation through the Phoenix Program.
