What is academic probation?
A. If a student’s academic level of achievement falls below a 2.0 cumulative GPA, but within a range dependent on credits earned, the student is placed on academic probation. Details of academic probation, including this GPA range, can be found in the University Catalog. A student is removed from probationary status at the end of the fall or spring semester in which the cumulative GPA is at least a 2.0
What is academic suspension?
Students are suspended from Coastal Carolina University at the end of the fall or spring semesters if (1) the student’s cumulative GPA falls below the suspension level as indicated in the University Catalog, or (2) while on probation, the student fails to earn a minimum 2.0 semester GPA in any semester. The first academic suspension means a required separation from CCU for the semester (fall or spring) immediately following the semester in which the suspension occurs. A second, or indefinite, suspension means a required separation from CCU for a minimum of one calendar year. More information on academic suspension can be found in the University Catalog.
