Probation and SuspensionAll undergraduate students at WVU are expected to maintain an overall GPA of 2.0 or higher.
Academic Probation, Suspension and Suspension Appeals
may serve the term of your suspension. The duration of the suspension is based on the number of times you have
been suspended previously from the university.
The first suspension is one regular term.
The second suspension is one year.
The third suspension is five years.
- You may take summer courses to avoid suspension. You may register for courses only at WVU or one its divisional campuses (Potomac State College or WVU Institute of Technology) to help raise your overall GPA. If you raise your overall GPA to the minimum required for reinstatement, then you can return for the fall term. If your overall GPA falls below the minimum required for reinstatement, you will be removed from fall courses and will need to serve the term of your suspension.
- You may appeal your academic suspension. If you plan to appeal your academic suspension, you must write a professional business letter to the Academic Standards Committee within CLASS. We've created a template letter you can use. In addition to the letter, you must provide supporting documentation to substantiate your appeal. One of two decisions will be made by the committee and communicated to you :
- The committee grants the appeal and you will be reinstated for the fall term.
- The committee denies the appeal and you will be suspended for a period of time as determined by the level of the suspension (for example, the first suspension is one regular term; second suspension is one year; and third suspension is five years).
All appeals, including documentation, can be sent to either email@example.com or mailed to:
Academic Standards Committee
Center for Learning, Advising and Student Success
700 College Ave
Morgantown, WV 26506
The deadline to submit an appeal is Friday, June 2nd, 2017. If sent through the mail, it must be post marked by June 2nd.
