Academic Warning and Probation

Academic Warning

A student whose cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) is 2.00 or greater but whose semester (fall or spring, excluding January term and Summer term) GPA is less than 2.00 is issued an academic warning.

Academic Probation

A student is placed on academic probation when his or her cumulative GPA falls below the 2.00 minimum requirement, or when in two consecutive semesters (excluding the January term and summer term) the student’s GPA falls below 2.00. The cumulative GPA for the three Linfield College programs is based on the following policies:

  1. Portland Campus students. The cumulative GPA is evaluated at the end of fall and spring semesters, and summer term and students are notified of their academic status. Students on academic probation will have one semester in which to bring both the semester and the cumulative GPA to 2.00 or greater.
  2. Adult Degree Program (ADP) students. The cumulative GPA is evaluated at the end of fall and spring semesters, Winter term, and summer term and students are notified of their academic status. Students on academic probation will 12 semester credits (the equivalent of a full load) in which to bring both the semester and the cumulative GPA to 2.00 or greater.
  3. McMinnville Campus students. The cumulative GPA is evaluated after posting the fall and January term grades. The cumulative GPA is also evaluated at the end of the spring semester but not after summer term. Credits earned in the summer are evaluated in the cumulative GPA after fall semester grades are posted. Students are notified of their academic status after the appropriate semester or term. Students on academic probation will have one semester in which to bring both the semester and the cumulative GPA to 2.00 or greater.

A cumulative GPA of 2.00 or greater is also the standard used to determine normal academic progress as defined by the Student Policies Committee. For any further inquiries about the academic probation policy, students should contact the Registrar or Registration Office appropriate to their program.

Applicants unable to meet the minimum admission standards set by the faculty may be provisionally admitted. Students who are provisionally admitted shall have one full year in which to establish good academic standing.
