Academic Dismissal

The academic records of students who have earned a grade point average below 2.0 are reviewed at the end of the fall, spring and summer terms. A determination is made if the student is dismissed or allowed to continue for another semester on strict academic probation. Each dismissed student will receive official notification via U.S. mail and through his/her SXU email account. All future registrations will be removed and/or blocked. Academic dismissal will be noted on the student's official transcript and will be part of the student's record.

A dismissed student may appeal the dismissal to the associate provost during the period of time specified in the dismissal letter. The appeal, stating the reasons for which the student considers the review justified, must be submitted via SXU email to the associate provost. The development of an academic plan in consultation with an academic advisor is required as part of the dismissal appeal process. The appeal will be reviewed by the associate provost in consultation with the dean, associate dean and program director. If the appeal is granted, notice will include the terms and conditions of continued study, and the student's status will be changed to strict academic probation. If the appeal is not granted, notice will include recommendations if the student plans to apply for readmission at a later date.
