From the Arkansas State University Undergraduate Bulletin:
ACADEMIC PROBATION AND SUSPENSION
Students who are admitted and currently enrolled through Transition Studies may be dismissed from the Transition Studies
program and therefore suspended from the University. Please see Transition Studies under Undergraduate Studies in the bulletin. Students under regular
admission standards suspended for the first time are under the retention policy listed below:
Students will receive academic probation at the close of any enrollment period (fall, spring or summer term) when their current semester
ASU cumulative grade point average (GPA) is below 2.00. Academic probation status will be removed at the end of any enrollment period when both the
current semester and ASU cumulative GPA are 2.00 or above.
Students receiving academic probation are strongly encouraged to counsel with an
academic advisor or call the Wilson Advising Center at (870) 972-3001.
will be suspended from the university for poor scholarship when their current semester
fall, spring, or
summer term ASU cumulative GPA are
below the required 2.00. Students suspended from the university for poor scholarship may apply for
readmission to Arkansas State University under
SCHEDULE OF READMISSION FOLLOWING ACADEMIC SUSPENSION.
READMISSION FOLLOWING ACADEMIC SUSPENSION
Upon academic suspension from A-State, students should contact the Wilson Advising Center to review the terms for admission following an
academic suspension from the university. (870) 972- 3001.
Students admitted to the university through Transition Studies, must successfully complete all program requirements. Failure to do so may
result in suspension from the program. Students who are suspended from the Transition Studies Program must contact Transition Studies at 870-972-
2080 to discuss readmission.
: Students on a first academic suspension with the university, who have not participated in Restart@state and wish to
return to A-State, must seek enrollment into Restart if they are returning to A-State within two calendar years. Students must first seek approval from the
Wilson Advising Center in order to participate in Restart, then complete the application process and attend a Restart workshop before classes begin for
the semester. Restart@state is a fall, spring and summer program option. Program fees do apply. The Restart Program fee is used for university retention
During the Restart semester, students will be allowed to enroll in up to 12 hours plus the one-hour Restart Seminar. Students who withdraw
from the university, are administratively withdrawn or fail the Restart Seminar will serve a mandatory separation period from the university and all other
institutions of higher education the following semester. Successful completion of the Restart@state program requirements, however, will allow
enrollment during the subsequent enrollment period, provided the student meets the necessary GPA and other requirements stated in the Restart
Students who are suspended from the university for the first time must enroll in the Restart@state program. (See
procedures for enrollment under the Restart@state Program.) All students considering taking coursework at another institution while on first suspension
from A-State are strongly advised to meet with their A-State academic advisors for guidance on appropriate coursework selection. (See section on
Transferring Work from Other Institutions while on First Suspension.)
Second and Third Suspension
: Students who earn a second and third suspension from the university are not permitted to enroll at A-State for
one calendar year. The suspended period is intentional to provide time for students to gain an appreciation for the opportunity to attend college. After
serving the suspension period, the student must visit the Wilson Advising Center for academic standing clearance prior to registration.
Students who earn a fourth or subsequent suspension from the university are dismissed from the university.
Permission to return must be granted by appeal to the University Graduation and Academic Credit Appeals Committee.
Transferring Work from Other Institutions while on Suspension:
Students serving a first, second, or third suspension who complete
coursework at a different institution during their suspended period, may have their coursework reviewed for acceptance at A-State, upon return.
