Academic Suspension

A student will be suspended for at least one semester if any one of the following conditions occurs:

  1. He/she does not meet the conditions under academic probation for the removal or extension of probation.

  2. He/she is administratively withdrawn for non-attendance from three courses while enrolled at Lyon.

  3. He/she fails to earn a grade of ā€œCā€ or better (not counting the second semester of a foreign language) in or drops a Core proficiency course three times.

  4. He/she fails to earn a grade of ā€œCā€ or better in or drops a Core developmental course twice.

A student under academic suspension cannot enroll in courses at Lyon for one semester (fall or spring), and can only return in either a fall or spring semester. Students suspended after the fall semester cannot register until the following fall semester. Students suspended after the spring semester cannot register for classes until the following spring semester. Students suspended after the summer semester cannot register for classes until the following spring semester. After the suspension period, the student must earn at least a 2.00 in the semester that s/he returns, and must achieve the minimum cumulative GPA by the end of the second semester after returning that would put him/her in good academic standing. (freshman, 1.75; sophomore, 1.90; junior, 2.00; and senior, 2.00).

Upon readmission, if the student does not meet the minimum academic standards, the student will be dismissed with no option for readmission.
