Please note: this information applies to students who have been admitted to McCoy College. Non-business majors should refer to the college of their declared major for probation information.
McCoy College students whose Texas State GPA falls below 2.0 are placed on academic probation by Texas State and are also placed on restricted status by McCoy College. Academic probation is an indicator that a student is not meeting the minimum academic standards set by Texas State. McCoy College has a strict probation policy that is designed to address the reasons for poor academic performance directly.
Students on academic probation and restricted status must increase their Texas State GPA to at least 2.0 in the subsequent semester or their McCoy College student classification will be terminated. When a student’s McCoy College classification is terminated, his or her admission to the College is voided. He or she must re-apply for admission to McCoy College and compete with other applicants for openings once his or her Texas State GPA is above 2.0 and minimum application requirements have been met again.
Please take note of the following conditions affecting business students’ course schedules on probation and restricted status:
Students placed on academic probation will have two long semseters (fall and spring) to raise their Texas State GPA to a 2.0 or higher. If the Texas State GPA is still less than 2.00 at the end of the second probationary semester, the student will be placed on first academic suspension. Complete academic probation and suspension policies are available in the Undergraduate Catalog.
A probation hold will prevent you from registering or making any changes to your class schedule. To have your hold cleared and to register or make schedule changes, you must attend a probation advising session with your academic advisor.
