Proposed Revisions to 301.9 - Academic Suspension

 

Policy:

 

            Students will be suspended academically at the end of any semester if they had been placed on academic probation during their prior semester of attendance and their cumulative GPA remains below 2.00 on a 4.0 scale.  At the option of the individual campus, an exception may be made if the student has earned a semester GPA of 2.00 or better for the semester without raising the cumulative GPA to 2.00, whereupon the student will remain on academic probation.  Students suspended may not re-enroll until they have been reinstated.  Campus administrations are authorized to work with the relevant faculty committees to develop policies and procedures for reinstatement, but reinstatement will require, at a minimum, one full semester of non-enrollment at any unit campus of the Montana University System.

 

 

Definition:

 

            1.  For the purpose of this section, cumulative GPA means the grade-point average which is computed by dividing the summation of grade points earned by the summation of credits carried, except that neither the credits nor the grade points shall be counted for the following:

 

            a.  non-credit, remedial, developmental, or other subcollege-level courses;

 

            b.  courses passed on a grade-basis of pass/fail; and/or,

 

            c.  transferred coursework.
