When a student is placed on academic warning (or simply “warning”), he/she/they is given the next regular semester (fall or spring) to raise his/her term (semester) grade-point average (GPA) to 2.2 or higher or to raise his/her cumulative GPA to a level sufficient to be in academic good standing. The student is required to participate in the EXCEL@OU program (see Sec. 10.2.4.).
After a regular semester on warning, the following things may occur:
- The student achieves academic good standing. The student is no longer on warning.
- The student achieves the required term (semester) GPA of 2.2 or higher, but his/her cumulative GPA is still such that he/she/they is not in academic good standing. As long as the student continues to achieve a term (semester) GPA of 2.2 or better, the student stays on warning. Eventually the student should achieve academic good standing, at which time he/she/they is taken off warning.
- The student does not earn the required term (semester) GPA of 2.2 and also does not attain academic good standing. The student is placed on academic probation.
