Academic Probation and Suspension
A matriculated student is required to maintain a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.00 to be in good academic standing.
Any matriculated student who has a cumulative GPA greater than or equal to 1.00 but less than 2.00 will be placed on academic probation for the ensuing semester.
- A student who fails to improve his or her GPA to a minimum of 2.00 at the conclusion of the first semester of probation will be continued one additional semester of probation.
- A student who fails to achieve the required cumulative GPA of 2.00 at the conclusion of the second successive semester on probation will be suspended.
- A student may not appeal for reinstatement; the only exception would be an error by the College in assessing or recording academic performance.
Students placed on academic suspension automatically lose their matriculation status and must achieve an acceptable academic level prior to applying for re-admission to the College through the Admissions Office. Course work through the Continuing Education program is one of several options available.
Note: A minimum Grade Point Average of 1.00 is required of first-year students and transfer students following their first semester. Failure to meet this requirement results in automatic suspension. See your catalog, for more information.
Academic Support for Probation
Academic Support for Suspension
Students are notified of their probation or suspension status by a letter from the Registrar, following the close of each semester. Students are encouraged to review the academic probation policies and upon doing so, to make an appointment with an academic advisor in the Elliot Center (603-358-2500). The purpose of this appointment is a comprehensive review of campus support services, and an opportunity to revise their schedule to include forgiveness course(s).
Students who are academically suspended also have the opportunity to meet with an academic advisor in the Elliot Center (603-358-2500). The intent of such a meeting is to review readmission requirement, and to discuss either registering for a maximum of 7 continuing education credits at Keene State, or enrolling in a college/university closer to home in order to support their request for readmission.
