FAQs

"Academic Warning" is just that, "a warning." Academic Warning does NOT prevent registration nor access to any other student services on campus. Academic Warning is intended to warn you that if you fail to meet any of the Academic Standards in another semester, you will move to Academic Probation. To see the effects of Academic Probation, proceed to the "Probation" tab.
Academic Warning occurs the first time you do not meet one or more of BYU–Idaho’s two Academic Standards.
  • Greater than or equal to a 2.0 semester GPA
  • Greater than or equal to a 2.0 cumulative GPA
The " ASM Hold" does NOT prevent registration nor access to any other student service on campus. The "ASM hold" is a reminder to complete the Academic Success Module (ASM) in your I-learn account before the end of your next semester. You will not be able to return to Good Academic Standing until you have completed this course.
We understand it may take time to raise a cumulative GPA above a 2.0, especially if you have had a bad semester early on in your studies. If your cumulative GPA is less than 2.0, and you meet the 2.0 semester GPA standard you will not go on Probation. You will stay on Warning until your cumulative GPA is above 2.0.

FAQs

Your academic standing has changed to Academic Probation because you failed to meet BYU–Idaho’s two Academic Standards for a second time.
  • 2.0 or higher semester GPA
  • 2.0 or higher cumulative GPA
A “Probation Hold” does not prevent registration but does restrict your registration to 12 credits or less per semester. It is your responsibility to know if being placed on Academic Probation will impact any of your other various student services, activities, or programs.
We want students to be successful academically. We have found it beneficial for students to take 12 credits or less while on probation until they have changed the habits or patterns that led to Academic Probation—particularly because any future failure to meet the Academic Standards may lead to Academic Suspension.
We understand it may take time to raise a cumulative GPA above a 2.0, especially if you've had a bad early semester. If your cumulative GPA is less than 2.0, and you meet the 2.0 semester GPA standard you will not go on Suspension. You will stay on Probation until your Cumulative GPA is above 2.0.

To return to Academic Probation:

  • Sit out for two consecutive semesters following Academic Suspension.

To be better prepared to return to school after Suspension, visit the Returning from Suspension page.

When you return to BYU–Idaho after Suspension you will be on 2nd Probation. You will be dismissed if both the following occur:

  • Less than a 2.0 semester GPA
and
  • Less than a 2.0 cumulative GPA

Note: You will not go onto Dismissal if your cumulative GPA remains above a 2.0. However, you will go on Suspension again if your semester GPA is less than a 2.0.
