The College of Science and Engineering believes that every student here has the potential to succeed.
If you are struggling academically, your academic advisor will help you identify your challenges and develop a plan for academic success.
The University places a student on academic probation when the term or cumulative grade point average (GPA) is below 2.0.
While you are on academic probation, you may register during your designated queue time if you have completed the following steps:
As a CSE student, you must meet these minimum academic requirements during your probation semester in order to avoid suspension from the University:
Significant changes to your coursework, missing or incomplete grades, and/or failure to complete at least one technical course (3-plus credits) may result in your continuing on probation at the discretion of the CSE Scholastic Committee.
Failure to meet any of the requirements of your academic probation will result in your suspension from the University of Minnesota. At that time, you will be dropped from any courses you have enrolled in for future terms and will not be eligible to register at the University of Minnesota for at least one academic year. You are encouraged to consult your academic advisor for guidance and support during that time. After one year, you will need to submit a Petition for Reinstatement after suspension form to the CSE Scholastic Committee to have your status reconsidered. Reinstatement is not automatic. You will need to demonstrate that you have made changes that will help facilitate a successful return to the University of Minnesota.
