Academic Suspension

A student who fails to maintain the required 2.00 cumulative institutional Grade Point Average after having been placed on Academic Probation, and does not achieve an institutional GPA of 2.00 or higher for that semester (Term GPA), will be suspended from the University. The first suspension is for one term; the subsequent suspension is for one year. Students will receive notification of their suspension through their Middle Georgia State University e-mail account, their academic record available on SWORDS, and by letter from the Office of the Registrar.

When placed on academic suspension for the period of one semester, the student will be eligible to re-apply to the University through the Office of Admissions by the end of the next academic term. For example: should a student be placed on a one term academic suspension at the end of a spring semester, the one term suspension would be the summer term and the student could then re-apply for a fall admission. However, after a third suspension, students are not eligible for readmission to the university until they are able to meet an overall cumulative 2.00 grade point average (transfer + institutional GPA).

Students may not petition academic suspensions.
