Good Standing and Probation
Any student whose cumulative grade point average at the end of any semester is 2.0 or better on a 4- point scale shall be in good standing.
Any student whose cumulative grade point average at the end of any semester is less than 2.0 shall be placed on probation for one semester, the “probation semester.” A student on probation is not in good standing.
After all grades are finalized and released, a student facing academic action will receive official notice from the Director of Academic and Bar Success and Associate Dean of Academic Affairs. The notice will be sent through official University email, and will contain the student’s status and a list to these Academic Rules.
Students placed on probation must schedule a time to meet with the Director of Academic and Bar Success prior to resuming law school classes.
During the probation semester, a student:
• Shall register for a full load of classes as defined by the rules of the School of Law.
• May not, ordinarily, enroll in a seminar, independent study, or live client course.
• Is subject to Academic Success and Legal Methods Program conditions listed in Chapter Five: Advising.
• Shall not hold any elected on appointed office in a student organization, including the Student Bar Association and Honor Council. If such a position is already held by a student when the student’s cumulative grade point average drops below a 2.0, the student shall resign such position(s) immediately.
Students on probation may attend summer school, but that summer semester is not the equivalent of the “probation semester.” Grades earned during that summer semester while on probation are part of the student’s cumulative GPA.
