Encouraging Your Excellence – Eagle E.Y.E.

Eagle E.Y.E. – Encouraging Your Excellence is a program designed for students that are on academic probation at the university.

Eagle E.Y.E. Introduction

What does it mean to be on Academic Probation?

Rules and Regulations

Probation and Dismissal (From the Undergraduate Academic Catalog)

  • All students who have been officially admitted to the University must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.0. The Admissions and Academic Progress Committee reviews the academic status of students at the end of the fall and spring semesters.
  • A student who receives two or more grades of “F” or whose cumulative grade point average falls below 2.0 in any semester is placed on academic probation. Probationary students may be required to participate in a university skills program, may be limited in the number of hours in which they may enroll while on probation, and/or given other conditions (e.g., grade requirements to be met, required to meet with an identified person).
  • The Committee on Academic Progress may remove a student from probationary status when the student has completed at least twelve credit hours while on probation, has shown progress toward a degree, and has raised his or her cumulative grade point average to at least 2.0. Failure to meet the conditions may result in dismissal from the University. The probationary period may be extended beyond twelve credit hours with the approval of the committee. Dismissal from the University without a probationary period is possible if the student was admitted on a provisional status, has a cumulative grade point average below 1.6, or is classified as a senior. Students placed on academic dismissal may appeal the dismissal once in writing to the Academic Affairs Office.

Satisfactory Academic Progress (Satisfactory Academic Progress)

  • Federal regulations require institutions to establish minimum standards of satisfactory academic progress for students receiving federal, state, and/or institutional financial aid. All aid applicants are required to maintain a designated grade point average (GPA) and satisfactorily complete a percentage of the number of credit hours they attempt.

  • All students are encouraged to thoroughly read all information sent from Student Financial Services including the terms and conditions for all awards prior to accepting their aid.
