Academic Probation and Deficiency – 2.0 Good to Go
A student at Purdue University shall be placed on academic probation if his/ her fall or spring semester or cumulative GPA at the end of any fall or spring semester is less than a 2.0.
A student on academic probation shall be removed from that standing at the end of the first subsequent fall or spring semester in which he/she achieves semester and cumulative GPAs equal to or greater than 2.0. Any grade change due to a reporting error will result in a recalculation of the GPA and determination of probation standing. Academic standing will not be assessed in summer sessions.
A student on academic probation shall be dropped from the University at the close of any fall or spring semester in which his/her semester and cumulative GPA is less than a 2.0. Any grade change due to a reporting error will result in a recalculation of the index and determination of drop status.
When academically dropped a student is required to sit out one regular semester. If dropped more than once, a student is required to sit out at least one calendar year.
After completing the required sit out period, a student may petition for readmission to the Purdue campus he or she wishes to attend. A fee is assessed for processing the readmission application. Readmission is not guaranteed, but any student who gains readmission is readmitted on probation and is subject to stipulations in effect as a condition of readmission.
Purdue students requesting readmission must complete an online readmission application through the Undergraduate Admissions website.
