4. After the Probation Term

Returning to Good Academic Standing
If a student is able to raise their CGPA above a 2.0 after their initial probation term, they are no longer on academic probation and return to good academic standing.

Academic Suspension
If a student is unable to raise their CGPA above a 2.0 during the term they are on initial probation, they may face academic suspension, which will prevent them from being able to take courses at Spring Hill College for one term (fall, spring).

In order to continue their studies at Spring Hill College after the term of their suspension, they must reapply for admission and are placed on extended probation.

Academic Dismissal
After being on Academic Suspension, if a student does not achieve a CGPA of 2.0 or greater during the term that they return to Spring Hill College, they may be academically dismissed and will no longer be able to take courses at Spring Hill College.
