Policy Procedures

Academic Standing/Academic Probation

Students are allowed to take up to twelve graduate credits on Academic Probation I. Students on Academic Probation I will be eligible to register for classes once a "Return to Good Academic Standing Course Plan" is approved and signed by their graduate advisor or program director as well as by the Graduate Dean (or the Dean's designee).

Students on Academic Probation I who achieve a minimum cumulative Brockport graduate GPA of 3.0 after completing any of the twelve credits will be returned to good academic standing. If a student does not achieve the minimum cumulative Brockport graduate GPA of 3.0 after completing the twelve credits, the respective department Graduate Committee will review the student's academic file and either:

  • Academically dismiss the student from the program immediately; or
  • Place the student on Probation II status. 

Students on Probation II receive written notification of their probationary status from The Graduate School. They are allowed to take up to six graduate credits on Academic Probation II. Students on Academic Probation II will be eligible to register for classes once a "Return to Good Academic Standing Course Plan" is approved and signed by their graduate advisor or program director as well as by the Graduate Dean (or the Dean's designee).

Students on Academic Probation II who achieve a minimum cumulative Brockport graduate GPA of 3.0 after completing any of the six credits will be returned to good academic standing. Students who do not achieve the minimum cumulative Brockport graduate GPA of 3.0 after completing the six credits will be academically dismissed.

Academic Conditions of Admission supersede Academic Standing/Academic Probation Policy.
