What is academic probation and dismissal?

To stay in good academic standing, students must not allow their cumulative GPA to drop below a 2.00. Students should also check the Undergraduate Catalog to ensure they are meeting the requirements for their departments. 

If students are not making satisfactory academic progress toward a degree they will be put on probation at the end of a semester. They will be allowed to stay at OU on probationary status for at least one semester in order to return to good academic standing by raising their cumulative GPA to a 2.00. Students with 24 or more credit hours who do not meet minimum GPA requirements will be in jeopardy of being dismissed from OU
