Good Standing: Students who maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 and earn a grade of “C” (2.0) or better in all required general education and didactic courses and a grade of “S” in all required practicum/clinical courses will be considered in good standing.
Academic Probation: Occurs when the GPA falls below 2.0 (C)
Academic Suspension: Student on academic probation who fails to make a C average or better during an academic term
See Academically At-Risk Students (below) for more information.
Students who are having academic difficulty are encouraged to talk with their course instructor and/or academic advisor as soon as possible. The instructor and/or advisor can often provide helpful information and suggestions that prevent the student from experiencing academic probation or suspension from the University.
A student whose cumulative program GPA falls below 2.0 (C), and who has attempted at least six (6) credits of IU coursework, will be placed on academic probation.
When a student is placed on academic probation, a letter to this effect shall be sent to the student and an electronic copy will be kept in the Registrar’s office and sent to your school/division. When a student on academic probation raises his or her cumulative GPA to at least 2.0, the student is released from probation.
A student who is on academic probation and who fails to make a C average or better during an academic term shall be suspended.
A letter to that effect shall be mailed to the student’s residence and an electronic copy will be kept in the Registrar’s office and sent to the student’s school/ division. The first such occurrence of a suspension shall be for a term of one semester (summer/fall or spring). After the suspension period has lapsed, the student is eligible to enroll at IU Southeast after meeting with an academic advisor.
A student who has been readmitted after an initial suspension and who is suspended for the second time, shall be suspended for a term of one semester ( summer/fall or spring) and must appeal for reinstatement to the dean of the school in which the student’s major resides. Reinstatement is not guaranteed after a second suspension.
Students on academic probation will have a “hold” placed on their account and will be required to discuss their progress with the pre-Nursing advisor prior to registration for the next semester.
Objective: To identify practices in the B.S.N. and RN-B.S.N. programs for admission and readmission of pre-nursing and nursing students.
- Students admitted to the B.S.N. and RN-B.S.N. nursing major must formally accept or decline admission in writing prior to beginning of the semester to which the student has been admitted.
- Students who have been accepted to the B.S.N. program but decline acceptance for any reason must reapply to the program and compete with the applicant pool for the semester in which they request admission for the second time.
- B.S.N. students have only two opportunities to decline admission in writing prior to losing their eligibility to apply.
- Students who have been accepted to the RN-B.S.N. program but decline acceptance for any reason must declare a new admission target date.
Students may progress toward the B.S.N. degree by applying undistributed course work toward general education or Nursing course credit. The Admission, Progression, Graduation (APG) committee reviews the student request to approve or deny credit as appropriate.
The student submits Course Approval Form to the academic advisor for the APG committee that includes:
- A written request to the APG committee to approve the undistributed course, specifically noting the general education or nursing requirement the course is to meet.
- The course syllabus with goals and objectives or the course description from an official website or college bulletin from the transferring academic institution.
- The APG committee responds to the student in writing. If approved, the academic advisor applies the course to the student’s degree plan.
* Undistributed courses are courses transferred from another academic institution that are not IU Southeast-equivalent courses, however, the student is granted credit for the course on the credit transfer report.
Knowledge and competencies developed in courses that fulfill the requirements for anatomy, physiology, microbiology, statistics, and life span development are considered to be time-limited for individuals pursuing an undergraduate Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree.
If any of these courses were taken more than seven (7) years prior to admission to the nursing undergraduate degree, the program applicant must validate the related knowledge and competencies through testing, portfolio, or repeating the course to be eligible for admission and/or progression.
