Third Term
Probation

* NOTE: Academic Standing is only calculated for degree-seeking students and only during terms where such students are enrolled in credit courses.

If at any time a degree-seeking student is on probation and enrolls in credit courses and achieves a GPA of 2.0 or greater for both the term and cumulatively, then their status will be reset to "Good Standing".
