A student is placed on probation after completing a semester at KU without a 2.0 grade-point average. Students placed on probation are informed of their probationary terms and must have a mandatory advising meeting with a departmental advisor. For admissions purposes, students with strong portfolios may be admitted on a probationary basis if their grades or ACT scores are not strong enough.
Continued on Probation
A student on probation may be continued on probation for an additional semester if the student's cumulative grade-point average shows considerable improvement.
A failure to raise the grade-point average above 2.0 in a semester while on probation may be grounds for dismissal. Students may also be dismissed by the Department of Design chair at any time for excessive absences or for failing to make progress toward the degree.
Students with KU semester and cumulative grade-point-averages of 2.0 or above are in good standing.
