What is academic probation?

Answer
To maintain satisfactory academic progress, you are required to earn a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 in all Binghamton University courses taken for credit. If you fail to meet this requirement, you will be placed on probation and expected to raise your cumulative average to a 2.0 level or better within a reasonable period of time.

Please note the following points regarding probation:

-You may not elect to use the Pass/Fail grading option while on probation.

-Academic probation does not imply dismissal and does not deny registration.

-For information about financial eligibility while on academic probation, see the Financial Aid Website.

Academic probation acts in part as a warning that you are not making satisfactory academic progress. Probation also serves as an opportunity to take corrective action. If you are placed on probation, you have fallen below the minimum standard for academic progress (minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA).

While on academic probation, you are expected to take appropriate steps to ensure your future success. This should include consulting with faculty and/or a Harpur Advisor. The corrective action you take may range from changing academic direction, to making lifestyle and study habit changes. You are encouraged to use the entire range of campus resources to help you formulate your plan.
