Probation is intended as a warning. If you
If you are placed on probation, you will receive a letter from Academic Advising regarding your status. A copy of the letter will also be sent to your academic adviser or major department.
Your probation status will be notated on your unofficial transcript. However, probation status is not noted on your official University transcript.
You will remain on probation for your next three consecutive quarters of enrollment. If you are away from Stanford on an official leave of absence or another reason for any one of those quarters, your three consecutive quarters of probation will begin again upon your return to Stanford.
In each quarter that you are on probation, you are required to:
successfully complete at least 12 units of new course work (incomplete courses are not considered successfully completed) by the end of the examination period; and
successfully complete at least 36 units of new course work in your most recent three quarters of enrollment; and
maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of at least 2.0.
In addition, during your first quarter on probation you are required to meet with a professional adviser at Academic Advising to review your academic experiences and map out your academic plans. You may schedule an appointment with a Academic Adviser online, or by visiting their office in Sweet Hall, first floor, or by calling (650) 723-2426.
If you complete these requirements, at the end of the three quarters you will be removed from probation.
If you are unable to meet the minimum progress requirements for students on probation, you may be placed on provisional registration or suspended.
