Will occur if the student's cumulative grade point average falls below 2.00 at the end of any semester. Students on probation must limit their academic load during the probation period to four courses with a maximum of 13 credit hours per semester.
Students who are placed on probation are given the opportunity to correct the deficiency in the cumulative GPA over two regular semesters. However, they must show satisfactory improvement during the first semester of their probation period (i.e. achieve at least a 2.00 semester GPA).
Will occur if the student's grade point average in the major falls below 2.00 at the end of any semester. Students who are placed on warning for major deficiency are given the chance of two semesters to clear the deficiency in the major GPA. If by the end of the two semesters the deficiency is not corrected, the student will be discontinued unless accepted in another major.
Academic Warning will also occur if a student fails ENGL100. Students on probation/warning for any of the above deficiencies are not allowed to participate actively, or represent the university, in co-curricular activities, such as teams, clubs, plays, and university competitions. They may not be nominated for the Student Union.
Will occur as a result of either of the following:
- Students on probation and did not achieve a semester average of minimum 2.00 at the end of the first semester of the probationary period.
- Students on probation and did not raise the cumulative grade point average to a minimum of 2.00 at the end of the two regular semesters of the probationary period.
- Students who fail ENGL100 in two regular semesters and a third time in a summer session, in one calendar year.
Students who are dismissed for failing ENGL100 twice in two regular semesters, and a third time in a Summer Session, in one calendar year, may apply for readmission after one full semester. Upon readmission, the student must score high enough on the AUC ELPET for direct admission to the Writing Program since s/he will not be allowed to repeat ENGL100 for the third time.
Academic Dismissal Appeals
A student who incurred academic dismissal may appeal in writing to the Office of the University Registrar by the deadline, which is printed in the "Schedule of Classes" in the section of "Petitions". Academic dismissal appeals are considered in cases where extenuating circumstances beyond the student's control have interfered with the student's academic performance.
Information to be included in the appeal:
- Explain the events/circumstances that were detrimental to your academic performance during your previous enrollment at AUC.
- Attach any supporting documentations of events/circumstances that merit your appeal.
- Describe how the events/circumstances in your appeal have been resolved.
- Describe your plans for ensuring satisfactory academic performance in the coming academic term, should your appeal be approved.
- Secure the recommendation of the department chair and school dean of your department of major, or the Freshman adviser if you are an undeclared student.
Appeals for readmission after dismissal will be reviewed by the "Readmission Committee". Students will be notified of the results of their appeals by Email. (Please provide your Email address in your appeal).
