- Academic Grievance Procedures for Students
Students in academic good standing have a Sam Houston State University (SHSU) grade point average of at least 2.0.
An undergraduate student who falls below the minimum 2.0 SHSU overall grade point average at the close of any term will be placed on probation. Students on probation are required to meet with an academic advisor in order to remain registered in the subsequent term.
If an enrolled student on probation achieves a current term GPA of 2.0 or higher but fails to achieve a minimum 2.0 SHSU grade point average at the close of the next semester or summer semester following the start of the probation, the student will be placed on continued probation. If an enrolled student on probation or continued probation fails to achieve a current term GPA of 2.0 or higher at the close of the next semester or summer semester following the start of the probation or continued probation, the student will be suspended. Refer to Academic Policy Statement 910312 for more details.
Students whose SHSU overall grade point average falls below a 2.0 GPA in the term following the probation standing will be suspended academically. Academically suspended students are required to (1) meet with their academic dean who determines approval for continued enrollment and (2) be re-advised for registration. Refer to Academic Policy Statement 910312 for more details.
International students placed on academic suspension should report to the International Student Advisor in the Office of International Programs.
Academic grievances include disputes over academic standards, course grades, unauthorized class absences or tardiness, suspension from the University for Academic Deficiency, and/or alleged unprofessional conduct by a course instructor. A copy of Academic Policy Statement 900823, Academic Grievance Procedures for Students, can be obtained from the office of the student’s academic dean, departmental chair, or the Newton Gresham Library.
