A student is eligible to return unless otherwise notified. Academically dismissed undergraduate students may petition for reinstatement under certain conditions. Graduate students with academic deficiencies may be denied permission to continue enrollment in certain programs. If this happens, a student must apply and be admitted to a different degree or nondegree graduate program before continued graduate enrollment is allowed.
Disciplinary expulsion, which can apply both to graduate and undergraduate students, prohibits the student from ever attending Ohio University and from being present, without permission, on any campus of Ohio University.
Students are informed of academic drop actions by their academic deans and of nonacademic suspensions by the Office of Community Standards and Student Responsibility. These offices place holds on students' academic records. It is not possible for a student to register while such holds exist. Failure to receive notification by mail does not affect a student's status.
At the end of each semester undergraduate students are evaluated based on their semester GPA and hours to determine placement on the President’s List, Dean’s List, or Provost’s List. The lists are available here.
The President’s List, compiled at the end of each semester, includes the names of all undergraduate students whose GPA for the semester is 4.0 for a minimum of 12 hours attempted for letter grades that are used to calculate the GPA; or students who have earned 12 hours with no GPA, (i.e., hours were not taken for letter grades), 4.0 GPA for any courses attempted for letter grades, and were on the President’s list the previous semester of enrollment.
The Dean’s List, compiled at the end of each semester, includes the names of all undergraduate students whose GPA for the semester is 3.5 – 3.999 for a minimum of 12 hours attempted for letter grades that are used to calculate the GPA; or students who have earned 12 hours with no GPA, (i.e., hours were not taken for letter grades), a minimum GPA of 3.5 for any courses attempted for letter grades, and were on the Dean's or President’s List the previous semester of enrollment. NOTE: Prior to Spring Semester 2022-23, the Dean's List, compiled at the end of each semester, includes the names of all undergraduate students whose GPA for the semester is at least 3.5 for a minimum of 15 semester hours of credit earned, including at least 12 hours attempted for letter grades that are used to calculate the GPA.
The Provost’s List, compiled at the end of each semester, includes the names of all undergraduate students whose GPA for the semester is at least 3.5 or greater and has 6 – 11.99 hours attempted for letter grades that are used to calculate the GPA.
Students in a recognized departmental honors program may take a maximum of three (3) graduate courses in their major department during their senior year (i.e., after earning 90 or more semester hours). Semester hours earned in these courses will count toward total semester hours required for graduation and the grades will be calculated into the undergraduate GPA. Registration in graduate courses requires permission from the instructor. Participation in this option is at the discretion of the department or school. Graduate courses taken in this manner will not apply to graduate credit at a future time.
For Athens campus students, permission slips for departmental honors students may be obtained through the academic departments where the courses are taught. Return the signed permission slip for processing to Registrar Services, first floor, Chubb Hall no later than the second Friday of the semester.
