SAP Probation

If you have appealed your suspension successfully, you will be placed on probation and may continue to take classes and possibly receive financial aid.
How do I remain on Probation?
 

In order to remain on probation and not be re-suspended, for each term you attend you must earn a minimum GPA of 2.5 or higher until you bring your cumulative GPA to 2.0 and complete 100%  of your classes until you bring your cumulative completion rate to 67%. You can't withdraw from classes or get a majority of C's during probation.

To recap - You can't withdraw or fail classes while on probation.  It is important to be doing A or B work in your courses in order to reach the minimum requirements the soonest.

   
How can I be removed from probation?
 

In order to be removed from probation and returned to good standing, your cumulative GPA must be 2.0 or higher and your cumulative credit completion rate must be 67% or higher. This may take one semester on probation or several depending on how far away from the minimums you are when you started your probationary term.

   
What happens if I do not meet the terms of my probation?
 

You will be re-suspended.

   
Is it harder to appeal when re-suspended?
 

Yes!  The appeal is an agreement between the student and Normandale to improve and be accountable.

If you don’t meet the terms of your agreement/appeal, it is unlikely that you will be approved again without new extenuating circumstances. 

Follow through on your appeal and the academic plan that you committed to in your appeal! It is important to take it seriously. 

The appeal is not just a formality, it is your responsibility.
