Academic probation is an emphatic warning that the quality of your work has not met Texas State's minimum academic standards and that the quality must improve during the probationary semester for you to continue at Texas State University. You will be placed on academic probation at the end of the fall or spring semester in which the Texas State GPA is lower than 2.00. You will be advised to come in to the Advising Center to discuss your academic plan. You will be removed from academic probation at the end of any long term or summer term if your Texas State GPA is 2.00 or higher.
Plan ahead when scheduling an appointment since advisors can get booked several weeks in advance during registration periods. Meeting with an advisor before your access period for registration is ideal.
For summer and fall registration, see an advisor in late February.
For the spring registration, see an advisor in late September.
An advising hold is used by departments to ensure that you receive appropriate assistance - before you register for courses. You must attend an academic advising appointment to have the advising hold removed.
Occasionally, because of unforeseen circumstances, substitutions may be necessary. This may be because the proposed substitution is justifiably similar to the required course or because the proposed substitution is necessary to meet your academic and/or work schedule.
To seek approval, consult your advisor or contact the Advising Center. Approval to substitute a course must be obtained before you register for a possible substitute.
