» Academic Probation and Dismissal

ACADEMIC PROBATION - Scheduling begins July 22nd, Appointments begin in August!

What is Academic Probation?

Any student whose term or cumulative GPA at Chapman drops below 2.00 will be placed on academic probation. 

Students on academic probation are required to meet with their academic advisor to review their grades, and develop a probation agreement which may include repeating courses, tutoring, academic mentoring, and regular meetings with an advisor.  Students on academic probation may enroll in no more than 14 or 16 semester credits each term they are on probation (credit totals depend on their cumulative GPA).

For students placed on academic probation following the SPRING 2022 semester, the link to schedule your probation appointment with your assigned academic advisor is available below.  DO NOT schedule a dismissal appointment below. If you are not subject to academic dismissal, your appointment will be cancelled.

What is Academic Dismissal?

A student is subject to academic dismissal from Chapman University if the student’s cumulative GPA at Chapman remains below a 2.000 for two consecutive semesters or the student’s term GPA falls below 2.000 for two consecutive semesters and their cumulative GPA falls below 2.700.

Students up for academic dismissal or students that have been dismissed and are seeking to return to Chapman University should meet with the Academic Advising Center’s dismissal advisor. 

Students subject to academic dismissal following the SPRING 2022 semester will soon be contacted directly by the Registrar's Office. The link to schedule with our Dismissal Advisor is available below.

Please review the info below on how to schedule your Dismissal appointment.

NOTE: Dismissal appointments are for students who are currently subject to academic dismissal. It is not a probation appointment. If you are on probation and schedule a Dismissal appointment your meeting will be canceled.
