This video will focus on what it means to be on probation and suspension:
RIT has a policy — RIT Policy (D5.1) states that “any degree-seeking undergraduate student whose semester or cumulative grade point average falls below 2.00 (C average) will be placed on probation.” You can see the full policy here:
Why probation? Your GPA was lower than 2.00 in a semester.
How to stay in good academic standing at RIT? You must maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or better.
BUT…. Students who remain on academic probation for more than two semesters can be suspended. Suspension [spell out and sign] means that you must leave RIT for one calendar year.
Now.. what to do?
In order for you to be removed from probation, you need to earn grades in your courses the next semester that bring your semester GPA to 2.00 and above. You also need to maintain your cumulative GPA to stay above 2.00.
Please contact your chairperson or your counselor/academic advisor (CAA) for help on how to improve your academic performance. Please work with your counselor/academic advisor on appropriate courses to take during the next semester. We want to see you succeed!
