Retention Policies

Honors College students are expected to maintain a 3.25 or better GPA. Students are in good standing if either their Texas State or overall GPA is above a 3.25. After each fall and spring semester, the Honors College will conduct a grade audit and enact the following:

 

Probation

Students will be placed on honors (not academic) probation if their Texas State and overall GPA are less than 3.25 but greater than 2.00. This probationary status will go into effect the next semester of enrollment.

 

Dismissal

If a student’s GPA falls below a 2.00 GPA (both Texas State and overall), the student may be dismissed immediately from the Honors College. 
 
If a student’s GPA remains below a 3.25 (both Texas State and overall) after serving on probation for one semester, the student may be dismissed from the Honors College. 
 
All students subject to dismissal will be given an opportunity to provide more information. The decision to dismiss will be based on the student’s participation in Honors courses, entire academic history, and the student’s response.  

Students wishing to provide additional information in response to a dismissal letter may do so here.
