Students who earn a grade point average (GPA) of:
- 3.0 and above are in good standing and have the option to take 15 credit hours in their second semester.
- 2.0 and above are in good standing and are allowed to take 12 credit hours in their second semester.
- 1.8-1.999 will be on probation and are allowed to enroll part-time and take up to 6 credit hours in their second semester. They must make a plan for success and meet with the GPA Probation and Appeals Team to have their plan approved. Deadline is one week before classes begin the following semester. Petitions will be heard before classes begin.
- Below 1.8 cannot enroll at IU South Bend for the following semester and will need to pause or attend another school (such as Ivy Tech). This category includes students who withdraw from and/or fail all courses in a given semester. These students can return to IU South Bend after providing evidence of their academic success elsewhere or by appealing to the Office of Admissions (we recommend the latter for students who pause for a year or more). Evidence of academic success means earning a 2.0 or above GPA in at least 6 credit hours of college-level work.
