Academic Probation and Dismissal
Students are placed on academic probation at the end of any semester in which their cumulative
EMU grade point average in courses taken for graduate credit is below 3.0. Students must
complete six graduate credit hours at EMU before being subject to academic probation. Students
are notified via their NetID (my.emich) email each semester of their status, and enrollment is
permitted only on a semester-by-semester basis until the probation is removed. Students placed
on academic probation are encouraged to contact their program advisor for assistance in
determining how to return to good academic standing.
A probationary student must obtain a semester grade point average of at least 3.0 in the first
semester of probation. Failure to do so will result in academic dismissal. If a probationary student
earns a semester GPA of 3.0 or higher during the first semester of probation, but their overall GPA
is still below a 3.0, the student will be given one additional semester to raise their cumulative GPA
to a 3.0 or higher. Failure to do so will lead to dismissal. Students will be notified via their NetID
Individual departments may specify additional grounds for dismissal from their program.
Students dismissed from an individual program while in good academic standing may still be
eligible for another graduate program at EMU.
