Changes to the Scholastic Discipline Rules

1. Change 1, Reducing the Time Students May Spend on Scholastic Discipline

Effective Spring 2004

Students are placed on warning when their cumulative GSU GPA is below 2.0 and they were not on supervision or probation the previous semester in attendance.
Students are placed on supervision when their cumulative GSU GPA is below 2.0 and they were on warning the previous semester in attendance. However, students on warning who attempt 6 or more semester hours and earn a GSU term GPA of 2.3 or better will remain on warning.
Students are placed on probation when their cumulative GSU GPA is below 2.0 and they were on supervision the previous semester in attendance. However, students on supervision who attempt 6 or more semester hours and earn a GSU term GPA of 2.3 or better will remain on supervision.
Students are placed on exclusion when their cumulative GSU GPA is below 2.0 and they were on probation the previous semester in attendance. However, students on probation who attempt 6 or more semester hours and earn a GSU term GPA of 2.3 or better will remain on probation.

At the end of the Fall 2003, all students who are on supervision will be placed on warning and all students who are on probation will be placed on supervision.

2. Change 2, Reducing the Number of Hours Students on Warning May Take

Effective Fall 2003, students on Warning may take no more than 13 hours per semester.

Rationale:

1. GSU has reached the maximum number of students we can serve. We must decide how to limit the size of the student body. The Enrollment Management Committee has raised admission standards but there is still a sizable group of students admitted under our former, lower, admission standards who have not been successful at GSU. The proposed change requires higher student performance to remain at GSU.

2. Data indicate that many students who get in academic difficulty respond by taking higher courses loads. This is a very ineffective strategy. Students on supervision and probation are already limited to 13 hours per semester. The change applies this limit to those on warning.
