Academic Probation/Dismissal

The Lake Campus Academic Probation and Dismissal Process is based on Wright State University policy listed in the Undergraduate Catalog. (Select "Dismissal and Readmission" for more information.)

Per this policy, students who remain on probation for two semesters may be dismissed from the university for unsatisfactory academic performance. Dismissal action is taken by the chief academic officer of the college, school, or division to which the students are assigned, in consultation with the head of the respective program unit or the academic advisor. In taking dismissal action, the academic officer will generally consider the student's progress toward meeting degree requirements, as well as overall academic performance. Notice of dismissal from the university will be sent directly to the student by the chief academic officer of the college, school, or division to which that student is assigned.

Specifically, for the Lake Campus, students will be notified, in writing, of their probation status by the Lake Campus Dean. Students who are dismissed from the University may, at the discretion of the Dean, have the opportunity to appeal this decision.

At the beginning of the Fall and Spring terms, the Dean will designate an Appeals Board to review student appeals to dismissal. The Board will include the Dean, Associate Dean and/or One Faculty, and One Academic Advisor. The Appeals Board will meet in a timely manner to review the submitted appeals and make a decision based on the documentation submitted by the student. Students who choose NOT to appeal or who do not win their appeal will be dismissed for one year per the above policy in the Undergraduate Catalog.

Students who are granted an appeal will receive additional information about requirements. After an appeal is granted, failure to meet with Academic Advising Staff and/or inability to raise the cumulative GPA to 2.0 or greater will result in dismissal.

Students who are dismissed will need to petition for readmissions after one year. For more information please view the Petition Information Admissions page. Dismissed students may also choose to consider Fresh Start after a 3-year period.
