Probation Status

Attendance Probation

The Reformed University recognizes that there are times when a student is unable to attend class, arrives late or leaves early. The attendance policy allows for these circumstances, while ensuring that each student attends class a sufficient amount of time to master their subject material. A student will be placed on attendance probation if he or she is below 85% attendance in any given subject/class. Frequent tardiness and/ or unexcused absences will result in placing the student on probationary status.


Academic Probation

  • A student with a GPA of 1.75 or lower, after competition in his or her first semester with less than 24 hours completed, will be on academic probation.
  • A student whose cumulative GPA is between 1.76 and 1.80 after the completion of 24 credit hours will be on academic probation.
  • A student on academic probation will be required to meet with the Register before the beginning of the following semester or withdrawal will result.
