Academic Suspension Process
Students who have an EOU term and cumulative GPA below 2.000 while on Academic Probation will be placed on Academic Suspension. Suspended (and, hence, “former”) students are denied all student privileges including, but not limited to, registration, class attendance, financial aid and residence in EOU housing. Students who petition for reinstatement should meet with an adviser and attend classes until their case is resolved with the Academic Standards Committee. There are exceptions for Summer Session registration, see Summer Session, Academic Standards Procedures.
Petition for reinstatement from Academic Suspension
Once grades are posted at the end of each term students that are placed on Academic Suspension will receive an email (to your EOU email account), which includes the online appeal form. Suspended students should contact their advisor to discuss their appeal and for assistance in preparing an academic plan. Then complete the online appeal form (link below) and submit your plan and any additional supporting materials by email to the Academic Standards Committee -firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note this process is for academic reinstatement not financial aid, see the Financial Aid forms page for appeal-reinstatement of financial aid

Student academic standing at the end of summer session can result in the following actions:
- Students entering a summer session on Suspension will NOT be given a chance to appeal to the Academic Standards Committee (ASC) for Fall reinstatement if their overall Summer GPA is below a 2.000.
- Students entering a summer session on Probation MUST petition the ASC for Fall reinstatement if their academic standing moves to Suspension as a result of summer coursework.
- Students who improve their academic standing to Good Standing during a summer session will NOT be required to appeal to the ASC for Fall reinstatement.
Grievance Procedures can be found in the Student Handbook, or online on the Student Success and Engagement homepage.
