A student on probation who fails to earn a term grade point average of 2.0 or higher will be suspended.
Students who have received final grades for at least 12 credit hours at the College of Southeastern or Southeastern Seminary and have earned a cumulative GPA of less than 1.0 will be suspended immediately.
Students who have been suspended may be required to move out of campus housing. Please contact the Director of Housing for further details.
Students on Academic Probation Status are considered not in good academic standing and are ineligible for financial aid.
A student who is suspended may not take classes at the College at Southeastern or at SEBTS or any other institution of higher education for which they will receive credit toward a degree. A student's first academic suspension will be for one semester; the second suspension will be for two semesters/terms and thus the student will need to re-apply for admission in order to resume his or her studies in the Southeastern community. A third occasion that would otherwise qualify a student for suspension will result in a dismissal from Southeastern and will make the student ineligible for readmission.
Suspension Period Regulations
Courses completed at any institution during a suspension period will not be accepted for credit toward any degrees offered at the College at Southeastern or SEBTS.
Readmission after Suspension
After each suspension term the student must appeal to the Dean of the Graduate Studies (if a graduate student) or the Dean of the College (if an undergraduate student) to re-enroll or be re-admitted after the given suspension period. This form must be completed and submitted as part of the appeals process. Re-enrollment or re-admission is not automatic and is subject to the approval of the Dean.
Upon reenrollment, the student enters on Academic Probation status and is once again subject to all the regulations related to a student on probationary status. As such, a returning student must earn or maintain a 2.0 average or higher while on probation. A student on probation is limited to 9 semester hours (seminary/graduate school) 12 semester hours (college) and must earn a minimum of a 2.0 average each subsequent term until the cumulative grade point average reaches 2.0. Failure to meet the 2.0 term/semester GPA will result in further suspension.
Academic Suspension will be noted on the student’s transcript for each applicable semester.
Academic dismissal results when a student fails to satisfy the requirements necessary for removal from academic probation once that student has been readmitted following academic suspension. Academic dismissal requires the student to withdraw from classes and move out of campus housing. The student is then ineligible for readmission.
“I understand that upon being readmitted I will remain on Academic Probation in accordance with the Academic Catalog policy described above. I further understand that if, while on Academic Probation, I have a semester GPA below 2.0 the next semester I enroll in classes, then I will again be placed on Academic Suspension.”
