Probation, Suspension, and Dismissal — SGCS
Learners are placed on probation if the GPA falls below 2.00 for undergraduates, 2.5 for the BBA core, 2.75 for the Nursing degree-completion program or 3.00 for graduates. The learner is given two consecutive courses to satisfactorily raise his or her GPA. If the learner successfully raises the GPA, probationary status is removed. Failure to remove the probationary status results in suspension from the program. The learner is notified of the academic suspension in writing.
A learner with two grades of failure (F) on an academic record is suspended when the grades are recorded by the Associate Registar - SGCS.
Once a learner is suspended, he or she may reapply for admission after six months. A petition for readmission is made in writing to the School of Graduate and Continuing Studies and may require a personal interview. A non-refundable charge of $50 is required for each readmission petition.
Once a learner’s GPA falls below the minimum required and he or she has previously undergone academic suspension, he or she will be dismissed as a learner from Olivet Nazarene University and will not be eligible to reapply.
