1.1 http://www.winthrop.edu/policy-definitions-glossary

The first semester a student’s cumulative grade-point average falls below a 2.00, he or she is placed on academic probation.

Students on academic probation may not enroll in more than 15 semester hours. A student on academic probation whose semester grade-point average is 2.00 or higher is not suspended at the close of that semester even though the cumulative grade-point average remains below 2.00. The student may continue enrollment on academic probation.

The student is removed from academic probation at the close of a semester in which the cumulative grade-point

average meets or exceeds 2.00.

Undergraduate special students are not subject to academic eligibility while in this classification.

A student's eligibility in a given semester cannot be influenced by the change of a grade awarded in any semester prior to the previous semester, except in the removal of an incomplete grade.

Records and Registration monitors student GPA at the end of each semester.
