Academic Standards

Critical Probation

The first time a student’s IU CGPA falls into the critical probation range, the student is placed on critical probation, which then places the student in danger of dismissal. If the student’s IU CGPA falls into the critical probation range a second time, the student is dismissed. However, students who have a semester IU GPA of 2.5 or higher are not dismissed, regardless of their cumulative grade point average.

Students taking coursework at another IU campus will be held to the same standards

Dismissal

The second time a student’s IU CGPA falls into the critical probation range (and the semester IUGPA is not 2.5 or above) the student is dismissed and may not enroll at IU Bloomington for at least one fall or spring semester. The student is also unable to take summer session courses at IU Bloomington.

The only time a dismissed student can enroll at IU Bloomington through UD again is if the student has been reinstated or has earned good academic standing (through another IU campus). After an absence from IU Bloomington for a fall or spring semester or longer, the student may petition to be considered for reinstatement.

Second Dismissal

The third time a student’s IU CGPA falls into the critical probation range (and the semester GPA is not 2.5 or above) the student is dismissed a second time and cannot petition for reinstatement until a full calendar year has passed.

If a student is able to get back into good standing through coursework taken another IU campus, the student may return without filing for reinstatement.

Termination

The fourth time a student’s IU CGPA falls into the critical probation range (and the semester GPA is not 2.5 or above) the student is terminated and cannot return to IU Bloomington through University Division.

Special High School Academic Probation

Students that enter IUB with an IU Cumulative Grade Point Average below 2.00 due to IU college coursework completed while in high school (most commonly dual credit coursework taken while in high school) are placed on Special High School Academic Probation. Students with this status will not be charged the probation fee, will not be required to take EDUC-X158 The Culture of College, and will not be required to sign a Phoenix Program Agreement. At the end of the matriculation term, students with a status of Special High School Academic Probation will go through the regular records review process and be assigned an academic status according to total credit hours and CGPA. Students with this status will not be dismissed after the first term enrolled through UD.
