Academic Dismissal

Students on academic probation will be dismissed for any one of the following reasons:

  • They fail to maintain a 2.0 grade point average for courses attempted in any semester or summer term.
  • They fail to remove themselves from academic probation after completing three consecutive terms of attendance.
  • They fail to remove themselves from academic probation after attempting 30 semester hours
  • .
For counting semesters and terms of enrollment, audits, withdrawals and incompletes will be used.

Students who are dismissed are not in good academic standing at KSU and are not eligible for immediate readmission.

After the first dismissal, a student may be considered for readmission after an absence of one semester or summer term. Dismissed students must reapply for admission prior to posted deadlines. After the second dismissal, a student may be considered for readmission after an absence of one calendar year from the end of the semester or summer term in which the second dismissal occurred. After the third dismissal, the student will not be eligible for readmission. Any exceptions to this policy must be appealed and approved by the Academic Standing Committee.
