Probation Q & A

What places a student on probation?

A student who receives a combined Listening/Speaking and Reading/Writing percentage below 70% at the end of a session is placed on academic probation for the following session.

A student currently not on probation who exceeds 16 total unexcused absences at the end of an 8-week session (14 total absences for a seven-week session) is placed on attendance probation for the following session. Total absences include tutoring for sponsored students and CAP students.  Total absences also include listening lab for students in levels one and two.

What are the two types of probation? What are the terms of probation?

Attendance probation

No more than 8 unexcused absences for an 8 week session or 7 for a seven week session.

  • A grade average of 83% (B) or better.
  • An effort grade of 1 or 2.

Academic probation

No more than 8 unexcused absences for an 8 week session or 7 for a seven week session.

  • A grade average of 70% (C-) or better.
  • An effort grade of 1 or 2.

An absence is not excused due to illness, going to the UD Health Center, going to the hospital, or having a doctor’s appointment. An absence is excused only when staying in a hospital overnight.
