Probation Information

Ohio University requires that students maintain an accumulative grade point average of 2.0 as a minimum standard of academic performance. If a student drops below this minimum standard then they will be placed on academic probation.

University regulations require students to make satisfactory academic progress each semester. Satisfactory progress means that a student should raise their accumulative grade point average each semester until it reaches a 2.0 level. Per Ohio University guidelines and procedures, if a student remains on probation and their accumulative grade point average falls significantly, or their deficiency points increase significantly in any semester while on probation, then they will be dismissed from Ohio University. Being placed on probation indicates that a student must immediately improve their academic performance. Fortunately improvement can be achieved by utilization of the following academic resources: Tutors, Supplemental Instructors, University College developmental courses, and through accessing resources available in the Student Success Center in Elson Hall room 174. There are many people willing to assist in developing appropriate strategies. If you are placed on probation and searching for help please contact a member of the OU-Zanesville student services staff.
