1) How do I check my academic standing?
Please check on iVue for academic standing and click on View Holds. If you are on Academic Probation, your academic standing should say Academic Probation and you have an AP hold on View holds.
2) I don’t understand why I am on Academic Probation.
A student is classified as on Academic Probation when one or more of the following three conditions apply:
• the cumulative AU GPA falls below 2.00,
• the semester GPA is 1.75 or below,
• a combination in a semester of three or more of Withdrawals (W), Incompletes (I), or grades lower than a C.
You should click on View University Academic Records on iVue to check if you have three or more of low grades (C-, D, F, W, I), your semester GPA and AU cumulative GPA.
3) My iVue says that I have Good Academic Standing. Why do I have an AP hold?
There have been some errors on AU system. Though your iVue says Good Academic Standing, you might have three or more low grades (C-, D, F, W, I) or your GPA is lower than what AU policy says. You should check your grades and GPA to make sure that things are correct for you on View University Academic Records on your iVue.
In case of the incomplete courses, academic standing will have to be updated manually by Academic Records Office once the final grades are submitted and posted. The final grades will decide whether the student will be on Good Academic Standing or Academic Probation. Please contact the undergraduate academic probation counselor with the inquiries.
4) I have an AP hold and I can’t register for classes.
Please check View Holds on iVue. If you have an AP hold there, please contact Mrs. Jiyeon Stuart (email@example.com, 269-471-6205) or Student Success Center (firstname.lastname@example.org, 269-471-6096) with your name and AU ID number. You will need to schedule a meeting with the Undergraduate Academic Probation Counselor. Once your meeting is scheduled, you will be able to register. The meeting can be scheduled beginning August for Fall Semester and January after New Year’s Day for Spring Semester. Once the meeting is scheduled, your AP hold will be moved so that you can register for the upcoming semester.
5) I have an AP hold and would like to register for more than 12 credits. How can I do that?
You will need to contact Student Success Center or the Undergraduate Academic Probation Counselor if you know the direct contact information. You may be eligible to register for 13 credits. More than 14 credits will need Dean’s approval.
6) I have an AP hold. How do I remove it?
It takes one semester of a full time student status. This means that students needs to register for at least 12 credits and pass most classes with a Semester GPA of 1.76 or higher and AU cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher. Your academic standing will be changed to Good Academic Standing then.
