Academic probation is a warning that a student is having difficulty in meeting academic requirements. A student is placed on academic probation when the cumulative grade point average is deficient based on his/her cumulative credit hours attempted (see below).
The student may continue to enroll at FHSU while on probation, but is being alerted to the danger of being suspended if academic performance does not improve.
Tips for Academic Success at FHSU
For each course that you are enrolled in you should:
A student is placed on academic suspension after more than one university enrollment if the cumulative grade point average does not meet the minimum standard based on his/her cumulative credit hours (see below).
Because academic suspension is based on cumulative grade point average, it is possible to be placed on academic suspension without ever having been on probation.
Students who have been academically reinstated to the university on a dismissal agreement that do not meet the requirements of their agreement are dismissed from the university. Dismissed students cannot enroll at FHSU unless they take courses from a regionally accredited institution and transfer back to FHSU with a cumulative gpa of 2.00 or higher.
Students suspended from the university for poor scholarship will be provided the right to appeal following their first academic suspension. Students will not be allowed an immediate appeal who have been suspended before. They will be required to lay out for a period of at least one semester during which they should reconsider and re-evaluate their plans. Students enrolling at another school during their period of suspension from the university will be expected to meet university admission requirements in order to return to FHSU. An official transcript from other institutions must be sent to the Office of the Registrar.
Each application will be considered on its own merits by the Academic Reinstatement Board. Reinstatement is not automatic.
If a student wishes to apply for reinstatement, an Application for Academic Reinstatement must be completed (form can be found below).
