​The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences requires it’s students to maintain a 2.0 GPA, if the GPA falls below the 2.0 GPA; the student will be placed on academic probation. A student who is placed on academic probation will be required to complete the Academic Success Program Packet. The packet is designed to assist the students in study skills, career counseling and the CLAS probation and suspension policies.6

​We can help the student complete the packet and point the student in the right direction to get their academics back on track.
