Review of academic records
Academic records are reviewed after grades become final at the end of the fall, spring, and summer term. Determination of academic status is based upon all credit hours completed (transfer and IU graded hours) and cumulative GPA. A student's cumulative GPA includes courses taken at all IU campuses but does not include other transfer work. Replacing a grade using the Extended X policy may affect academic status, but only if the X petition is filed before grades are final. Students will be notified of their academic status via email.
Academic Good Standing
A cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher in the University Division is considered to be Academic Good Standing.
The University Division routinely acknowledges individuals who demonstrate outstanding academic performance Fall or Spring semesters by placement on the Dean's List. Qualifying honorees earn a minimum semester GPA of 3.7 and complete at least 12 graded credit hours.
All students with an cumulative GPA below a 2.0 are placed on some form of academic probation. The only way to get off of probation is for a student to raise his or her GPA to a 2.0 or above.
The type of probation a student is on (probation vs. critical probation) is based on the student's cumulative GPA and class standing (in other words, credit hours).
|Credit Hours Completed*||Probation if GPA is less than 2.00 and is||Critical Probation if GPA is|
|1-18||1.33 or higher||less than 1.33|
|19-36||1.63 or higher||less than 1.63|
|37-45||1.83 or higher||less than 1.83|
|46+||less than 2.00|
*To calculate credit hours completed, you will need to include your GPA hours (not hours earned) and your transfer hours.
