Conditional or Probational Admission

Applicants who do not meet the established admissions criteria may be considered for conditional or probationary admission by the Admissions Committee. Students admitted conditionally or on probation may be required to take remedial courses that do not count toward degree completion and/or attend counseling and tutoring in the Center for Academic Excellence and may also only be allowed to enroll in a limited number of regular degree-related courses. Grades for students admitted conditionally are reviewed at the end of the semester. Students who make acceptable progress and fulfill the conditions of their admission are allowed to continue their studies as regular students.
