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 2023 semester, the link to schedule your probation appointment with your assigned academic advisor will be available as of July 21st. Appointment availability begins Tuesday, August 1st through Friday, September 8th. 

If you are subject to academic dismissal, please see the ACADEMIC DISMISSAL section below to schedule your appointment. If you are a dismissal student and schedule a probation appointment, 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 2023 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.
