Kettering University has four levels of academic standing: good standing, academic warning, academic probation, and academic review. The four levels are discussed in detail below.
 

Good Standing

To be in good academic standing, a student must maintain a term and cumulative GPA of at least 2.0.
 

Academic Warning

A student who fails to meet the criterion for good standing is placed on academic warning.
  • If at the end of the warning term both GPAs (term and cumulative) are at least 2.0, the student returns to good standing.
  • If at the end of the warning term either the term or the cumulative GPA falls below 2.0, the student may be held on academic warning for one more term.
  • If at the end of the warning term both GPAs (term and cumulative) are below 2.0, the student is placed on academic probation. A student who has been on warning for two terms and has not returned to good standing will also be placed on academic probation.
 

Academic Probation

A student is placed on academic probation after two consecutive terms in which he or she fails to earn both a term and cumulative GPA of at least 2.0.
  • If at the end of the probation term both GPAs (term and cumulative) are at least 2.0, the student returns to good standing. 
  • If at the end of the probation term, either the term or the cumulative GPA falls below 2.0, the student may be held on academic probation for one more term.
  • If at the end of the probation term both GPAs (term and cumulative) are below 2.0, the student’s case is reviewed by the Academic Review Committee (ARC) for potential dismissal.  A student who has been on probation for two terms and has not returned to good standing will also be reviewed by ARC.
A student on academic probation is required to develop and implement strategies for academic success with the assistance of a success coach from the Academic Success Center. Students on probation cannot register for consecutive academic terms.
 

Academic Review

Students on probation that fail to show significant academic improvement are reviewed for dismissal by the Academic Review Committee (ARC), a subcommittee of the Kettering University’s Faculty Senate. Students are typically reviewed for dismissal during their co-op rotation. The decision of the committee becomes effective as of the beginning of the following term.
Students referred for academic review have two options:
 All documentation related to the ARC review should be submitted by email or US mail to the attention of the Academic Success Center.
 

Readmission

If students are dismissed from Kettering, they may be readmitted if they meet specific requirements. In general, student are eligible for readmission after nine (9) months. Upper-class students may apply for conditional readmission directly through their degree department after six (6) months. See provisional agreement for conditional readmission.
