Academic Probation and Suspension

Students earning an overall grade point average (GPA) of less than 2.0 will be placed on academic probation and restricted to (12) credit hours or less. Students will be automatically taken off of academic probation when their overall GPA reaches 2.0 at the end of an academic term.

At the close of the probation semester, students failing to improve their GPA’s to at least a 2.0 will be placed on academic suspension, during which time they will not be allowed to take classes at Butler, and will automatically be dropped from pre-enrolled courses for the subsequent semester, and will not be recommended for admission to any other academic institution.

In order to continue taking classes at Butler, students placed on suspension must meet with with an Academic Advisor face-to-face and complete the suspension appeals process for reinstatement into the college. If reinstated, at the close of the appeal semester, students failing to improve their overall GPAs to at least 2.0 will be suspended from Butler for one term.
