Students with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or greater in their Auburn coursework at the end of any term will be placed in (or remain in) Good Standing status.
Academic Warning status is imposed at the end of any term for which the student’s cumulative GPA on Auburn course work is below 2.0.
Any student who is on Academic Warning status will be placed on Academic Suspension if both of the following conditions apply: (1) the term GPA is below 2.2 and (2) the cumulative GPA on Auburn course work is below that required for the designated number of hours earned as follows:
|Hours Earned||Required Minimum Auburn Cumulative GPA|
|91 or more||1.97|
All students, whether beginning freshmen or transfers, are not subject to suspension until they have received one semester warning (i.e. students cannot go directly from Good Standing status to an academic suspension in a single semester).
Terms of Suspension
A student who incurs a First Academic Suspension may not enroll in the university for a minimum of one semester. Summer term does not count as a semester for terms of suspension. A student may not take coursework at Auburn University or at another institution of higher education during the period of suspension and apply the credit to an Auburn University degree. A student returning from academic suspension will be on Academic Warning status. A student who incurs a Second Academic Suspension may not enroll in the university for a minimum of two semesters. A student who has incurred two academic suspensions will be placed on Last Warning. A student on Last Warning who does not achieve at least a 2.2 in the current academic term or reach the overall GPA target listed above will be dismissed from the university. A student on suspension may not take coursework at Auburn University or any other institution of higher education, either during summer term or during the other semesters of suspension, and apply the credit to an Auburn University degree. Under some extraordinary circumstances, a student who has been dismissed from Auburn University may be readmitted at a future date. In these cases, no coursework taken elsewhere during the period of dismissal can be applied toward an Auburn University degree.
James Harrison College of Pharmacy
A student enrolled in the James Harrison College of Pharmacy who is placed on academic suspension and who wishes to re-enter the college must, in addition to complying with other university readmission requirements, be approved for readmission by the Pharmacy Admissions Committee and, when applicable, by the university’s Admissions Committee.
College of Veterinary Medicine
Any student who earns less than a 2.25 GPA for any term will be placed on academic probation. A student who fails to earn a 2.25 GPA for any two terms in the same academic or calendar year may be dropped from the College of Veterinary Medicine for scholastic deficiency. In addition, a student who does not have an overall average of 2.25 for an academic year or who does not have a veterinary overall average of 2.25 for an academic year or who does not have a veterinary college cumulative average of 2.25 at the end of any academic year may be required to withdraw from the College of Veterinary Medicine.
A student who makes a grade of F in any course may be dropped from the College of Veterinary Medicine until such time as the course is offered again. Such students may be required to repeat certain other courses in the curriculum for the term in which a grade of F was earned.
Students who are dropped under the above provisions are eligible for admission to other curricula provided they meet the general scholastic requirements for continuance in the university. Scholastic penalties incurred during enrollment in the College of Veterinary Medicine will become part of the student’s record.
