3.2 - Academic Probation, Suspension, and Dismissal

Continued enrollment at OUHSC requires maintaining satisfactory academic performance levels.  Students who do not maintain satisfactory progress towards their academic objective as indicated below will be placed on probation, suspended, or dismissed.   Refer to each college dean's office for the policies regarding standards of scholarship.

PROBATION

Students not maintaining satisfactory progress will be placed on academic probation for the upcoming semester at the end of which time they must have met the minimum standard required to continue as a student in good standing. Undergraduate students enrolled on probation may be continued on probation provided they earn a 2.0 grade point average on that semester's work. An undergraduate student enrolled on probation who fails to raise his/her cumulative grade point average to a minimum requirement or earn a 2.0 grade point average on work taken while enrolled on probation may be suspended or dismissed for poor scholarship.  Graduate College students must maintain a 3.0 grade point average to remain in good standing.   Students enrolled in professional programs should check with their respective colleges for the minimum academic standards required to maintain good academic standing.

SUSPENSION

Students suspended for academic or disciplinary reasons are ineligible to continue in their program until they have met the terms outlined in their suspension letter. After a student has returned to the program following suspension, he/she must meet any specific conditions established by the dean of his/her college for retention.  Any student who has been suspended should contact the Office of Admissions and Records for instruction.

DISMISSAL

Students dismissed from their program for academic or disciplinary reasons may apply for readmission to the University.  Readmission is decided on an individual basis and is not automatic.  If a student is readmitted to the university following dismissal, he/she must meet any specific conditions established by the dean of his/her college for retention.
