Academic Suspension prevents a student from enrolling in any academic courses at BYU—Idaho for two consecutive semesters, including those offered through Continuing Education and Online Learning. The student is expected and required to return to BYU—Idaho on their next on-track semester following their term of suspension. If an off-track semester immediately follows their term of suspension, a student may choose to take Online Learning or Continuing Education courses during that semester.
Students are placed on Academic Suspension based on one or more of the following reasons:
To lift Academic Suspension, the student must sit out for two consecutive semesters from BYU-Idaho following your suspension
Student's who fail to maintain Satisfactory Academic Standing after an Academic Suspension has been lifted will be academically dismissed. Academic Dismissal permanently restricts a student from attending BYU—Idaho. Students who wish to continue a formal education will need to seek opportunities elsewhere.
Students who are placed on Academic Suspension must withdraw from school and arrange for a tuition refund with the Bursar's Office. Academic Suspension DOES NOT relieve you of the housing contract(s) you may have signed for the upcoming semester(s). You will not be eligible to live in approved housing while you are on Academic Suspension. If you have any questions regarding your housing contract, contact the manager of your complex or the Housing & Student Living Office at (208) 496-9220.
While on Academic Suspension, you may be charged for Student Health Insurance. If you have questions concerning your student health insurance, contact Ruth Clark at (208) 496-9331.
Students on Academic Suspension are expected to return to the University after sitting out two consecutive semesters. Students who do not enroll in their next on-track semester following their Academic Suspension will be withdrawn from the University. If the student wishes to return at a future date the student will be required to apply for re-admission.
Students choosing to serve an LDS mission immediately following their Academic Suspension will not need to reapply to the University.
Students who return after their Academic Suspension is lifted will be placed on Academic Probation until they meet the requirements for Satisfactory Academic Standing.
If the student feels there are extenuating circumstances (e.g., health issues, family emergencies, etc.) that affected their ability to do well in school, you may petition your Suspension through the following steps:
Students with questions regarding Academic Dismissal can email email@example.com or call (208) 496-1023.
Students are not required to do anything during their term of suspension. The University views the two term suspension as an opportunity for a student to evaluate their responsibilities, priorities, and personal circumstances.
