Some students may be accepted on academic probation. These students need to achieve a semester GPA of 2.0 in order to remove the probationary status.
At the close of each semester, students who have a cumulative GPA below 2.00 are placed on academic probation. A student must achieve a cumulative GPA above 2.0 during the student's next semester at Viterbo or the student may be suspended.
An advisor should carefully plan a course schedule with the student so that a 2.0 or higher cumulative GPA is achieved. Advisors should be aware that repeating a course may be a realistic option so the student is able to remove the probationary status.
