Academic Improvement Plan

The Academic Improvement Program (AIP) exists to assist students with improving their academic performance. It includes meeting with an advisor, possible enrollment in study skills courses and limiting the number of hours a student enrolls in.

  • Students placed on an AIP are required to meet with an academic advisor prior to registering for classes each semester.
  • Students should also speak with an advisor prior to withdrawing from any classes to avoid potential policy violations that may result in partial or total withdrawal for the semester.
  • Students on Supervision or Probation are required to meet with an advisor to have their registration schedules approved and registration holds removed.

The information below describes the criteria by which a person is assigned an academic standing within the AIP and what the consequences of each standing are:

Scholastic Discipline Policy

There are four levels of scholastic discipline for students: Warning, Supervision, Probation, and Exclusion. A student who is eligible to enroll in courses at GSU is in Good Standing.

If grades begin to falter, students are placed on:

  • Warning when their cumulative Georgia State University GPA is below 2.0 and they were not on supervision or probation the previous semester in attendance.
  • Supervision when their cumulative Georgia State GPA is below 2.0 and they were on warning the previous semester in attendance. However, students on warning who attempt 6 or more semester hours and earn a Georgia State term GPA of 2.3 or better will remain on warning.
  • Probation when their cumulative Georgia State GPA is below 2.0 and they were on supervision the previous semester in attendance. However, students on supervision who attempt 6 or more semester hours and earn a Georgia State term GPA of 2.3 or better will remain on supervision.
  • Exclusion when their cumulative Georgia State GPA is below 2.0 and they were on probation the previous semester in attendance. However, students on probation who attempt 6 or more semester hours and earn a Georgia State term GPA of 2.3 or better will remain on probation.

NOTE:  Students on exclusion are not eligible to enroll in any undergraduate program or any status at Georgia State.  No transfer credit will be accepted for courses taken at other institutions while a student is excluded from the university.
