Academic Dismissal

A degree seeking student who earns a cumulative grade point average (GPA) that is below the required minimum academic GPA at the end of any semester will be dismissed from Mansfield University. The minimum QPA varies depending upon how many credits you have attempted at Mansfield University and how many credits the university has accepted in transfer. (See “Minimum Academic Standards” above.) If you are academically dismissed, you may be reinstated to the university by appealing to and appearing before the Academic Standards Review Board (ASRB) prior to the beginning of the next semester, or you may apply to the Admissions Office for re-admission following an interval of one year. The decision of the A.S.R.B. is final and may be appealed only in instances of alleged discrimination or failure of the board to properly follow university specified procedures and policies. Students who are reinstated by the A.S.R.B. and students who are readmitted on probation have two semesters to acquire the necessary GPA for continued matriculation. This is contingent upon earning a minimum 2.0 semester GPA for the semester immediately following their being reinstated, after the 1st dismissal, or the first semester following their probationary readmission to the university. A student who has attempted 45 or fewer credits and is academically dismissed and is then subsequently reinstated by the Academic Standards Review Board will be required to participate in the University Learning Center’s Student Success Seminars and are also assigned an advisor in the Academic Advising Center. The purpose is to help the student improve his / her overall academic performance. Failure to participate in the Student Success Seminars or to meet with the probationary academic advisor, will be considered at any subsequent dismissal hearing. Academic dismissal may impact your eligibility for financial aid. A second or subsequent dismissal terminates your association with Mansfield University.
