Students Returning Who Are Not in Good Academic Standing

Students on Suspension

During the one-year academic suspension period, students who wish to return to the university should consider one (or both) of the following actions:

  • Attend another regionally accredited college/university.
    • Students who choose to attend another institution while on academic suspension can take as many or as few credits as they choose, but must earn a 2.750 cumulative GPA in all transferable course work.
    • Students should consult their academic advisor to discuss appropriate course work.
  • Students should use the time off to directly address and resolve the factors that contributed to the academic difficulty.

After the one-year suspension period has elapsed, students must petition the appellate committee (of the school or college they wish to enter) for readmission and meet and document at least one of the following criteria:

  • Attendance at another regionally accredited college/university where they earned a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.750 in transferable credit.
  • Explanation of their previous academic difficulty, demonstration of what has changed and how this will allow them to now achieve and maintain good academic standing (including a semester GPA of at least 2.300 and a cumulative GPA of at least a 2.000).

Students who choose to petition their college’s appellate committee for re-admission must submit their petitions by the following deadlines:

  • For fall admission: June 1
  • For spring admission: December 1
  • For Maymester/summer admission: April 1

If a student is granted readmission and their CU GPA is below a 2.0, they will be re-admitted on restricted academic probation. These students must meet the condition of restricted academic probation every semester until their cumulative CU GPA is at least a 2.000.
