Good Academic Standing
The academic standing of all students is reviewed two times each year by the Pack Center, at the end of fall, and spring semester. Students must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.000 or higher to remain in Good Academic Standing.
Students are placed on academic probation at the end of any semester (excluding summer, and excluding first semester freshman year) in which their cumulative grade-point average falls below 2.000.
Academic Probation status is noted on the transcript. In addition, students receive a letter (Notification of Academic Probation Status) from the Pack Center. At this point, students are strongly encouraged to develop an Academic Improvement Plan (AIP) in collaboration with staff from the CSU Pueblo’s Pack Center.
Students on Academic Probation will have two semesters (excluding summer) to raise their cumulative grade-point average to a 2.000.
Students who fail to clear Academic Probation after two regular semesters (excluding summer) will be placed on Academic Suspension.
Students placed on Academic Suspension cannot re-enroll at the University for a period of two consecutive semesters (excluding summer) unless they successfully appeal their suspension by the appeal deadline.
Students placed on Academic Suspension who successfully appeal their suspension can return to the University on a Conditional Reinstatement.
Students on Conditional Reinstatement status will remain under the guidelines of the catalog in effect at the time of their regular admission.
Students on Academic Suspension who stay away from the University two consecutive semesters (excluding summer) following their notice of formal academic suspension must:
- be readmitted to the University, and
- adhere to the requirements of the catalog in effect at the time they are readmitted to the University.
Students who want to appeal their Academic Suspension are responsible for initiating the process by submitting an Appeal Letter to the Pack Center. The Appeal Letter must address two issues:
- Why the Academic Suspension is being appealed, and
- What the student will do to make an improvement in academic performance.
The deadlines for Appeal Letters requesting Conditional Reinstatement are:
- Subsequent Fall semester—the 2nd Monday in June
- Subsequent Spring semester—the 3rd working day of January
Failure to submit Appeal Letters within this prescribed time line will result in Academic Suspension for two consecutive semesters (excluding summer).
