Undergraduate Continuance Regulations


At the end of each term – fall, spring and summer – the academic advisor will review the records of all students who do not maintain a 2.00 grade point average (GPA) and will act according to the following policies, which are summarized below. 


Academic Probation 


An undergraduate student is placed on academic probation when the student’s cumulative GPA falls below 2.0 at the end of a fall or spring semester, excluding summer term. Students on academic probation are expected to improve their cumulative GPAs. A student who achieves a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 is removed from academic probation and placed in good academic standing. 


ADA University is committed to assisting students in achieving their academic goals. Students on academic probation are required to meet regularly with their academic advisor. They are also required to participate in a student success program defined by their academic unit during their semester of attendance. Failure to complete the requirements of the success program will result in cancellation of registration for the next Fall or Spring semester. 


An undergraduate student on academic probation may not enroll in more than 30 credits per semester of attendance (no more than 12 credits in the summer term).


 If a student is assigned an Incomplete grade and the final assigned grade brings that student's cumulative GPA below the required level, the student will be placed on academic probation at the end of the semester. 


Undergraduate students can be placed on academic probation for no more than two consecutive semesters. In other words, failure to achieve a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better at the end of a Fall or Spring semester while on the second probation will result in academic dismissal (see below). 


Academic Dismissal


 Following two semesters of academic probation period, an undergraduate student will be dismissed at the end of the term if the student’s cumulative grade point average remains below 2.0. Students dismissed at the end of the academic probation must separate from the University for one semester. 


A student may apply for readmission to ADA University for the semester following completion of the above period. Readmission applications are evaluated based on the total record of the student and consistent with the admission practices in effect at the time of application. A student who is readmitted is governed by the academic requirements and Catalogue in effect at the time of readmission. 


An undergraduate student who is readmitted after dismissal will be enrolled under academic probation status and will remain subject to the provisions of that status until good academic standing is achieved. The student will have two semesters to attain a 2.0 cumulative GPA and good academic standing. If the readmitted student fails to obtain a semester GPA of 2.0 in any subsequent semester before achieving a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0, the student will be permanently dismissed from the University. 


Academic dismissal is permanently recorded on the transcript. 


The University will immediately dismiss undergraduate students whose cumulative GPA (excluding courses in which the recorded grade is I) falls below 1.0 (D) for two consecutive semesters. Students who are dismissed with a GPA lower than 1.0 will not be considered for readmission. 


EAPP Continuance Regulations 


EAPP students are expected to receive an overall grade of “C” and above for the level. If an EAPP student receives an overall grade below “C”, that student must repeat the entire level. 


Academic Probation 


An EAPP student will be placed on academic probation for one session, if that student must repeat the entire level. 


Academic Dismissal 


Failure to achieve an overall grade of “C“ or above for the level at the end of the academic probation will result in academic dismissal from the University. 


The total study period in EAPP may last for a maximum of two years. If a student fails to achieve the required level in two subsequent academic years, he/she will be dismissed from the University.
