To advance from one term to the next, students are required to show satisfactory academic performance to meet requirements of their program and to fulfill all financial obligations to the University. Policies for progression within programs are available from the program director and may be more stringent than this policy. The more stringent policy applies.

University probation results if the student's cumulative institutional grade point average (GPA) falls below 2.00. Students are informed by the academic dean's office, in writing, of their status. Students must meet with their academic advisor upon receiving notice of probation. Students will be placed on extended probation or suspended from the University if they do not meet the conditions of probation. Students may apply for readmission after one semester's absence.

Students may petition the academic dean for reconsideration of suspension. Petitions must be submitted in writing to the Office of Academic Affairs on the Minneapolis campus.
