Academic Dismissal/Probation/Academic Alert (CAA)

Academic Dismissal

The College of Education adheres to the University Academic Censure Policy.

College Probation

Undergraduate students in the College of Education may be placed on academic probation for the following:

  • overall GPA is below 2.500 after the completion of one term of course work
  • overall GPA is below 2.600 after the completion of at least two terms of course work
  • term GPA is below 2.000, regardless of overall GPA or number of terms completed

College Academic Alert (CAA)

Students admitted to the College of Education are expected to meet college academic standards and maintain good academic standing. Academic performance is monitored carefully by the Teacher Education Academic Review Committee, and students either not maintaining steady progress or not demonstrating adequate achievement are barred from future registration by a College Academic Alert (CAA) registration hold.

The bases for committee review are:

  • grade point average (GPA) deficiency
  • inadequate progress
  • grades of C-, D+, D, F, I, U, UNC, ADW, UW, W, WA or WF
  • the number of terms on college probation
  • the violation of special conditions

Special conditions may be prescribed in writing at the time of students' admission, readmission or transfer into the college. Conditions may also be prescribed in writing in the case of students whose course performance or failure to follow academic advice warrants such action. All students to whom conditions have been specified are subject to committee review and possible CAA restriction should they fail to fulfill the specified terms. It is possible that students can be barred from registration for academic reasons even though the cumulative GPA exceeds 2.000. Students concerned about their academic progress should consult the college office.

Students placed on CAA status are notified by letter or email of the committee’s decision and of the appeal process. If the appeal is denied, students may request to enroll in another college via the process outlined in the University Academic Censure Policy, and if accepted, the CAA hold is removed after admission into the new college.

Unless the CAA is removed via the individual colleges' appeal process, students may not register for courses at Marquette and may be dropped from any classes for future terms in which they are registered.
