Probation and Suspension Academic Guidelines 

The following guidelines will be used to determine the continuation of funding under the Oneida Higher Education Grant Program.

Note: grade point averages will be calculated by Higher Education and will be based on the number of credits funded for the semester/term (see Academic/Grading Requirements).

1. Students may be placed on either probation or suspension for failure to earn the required semester/term grade point average (gpa). 

    a. Undergraduate/technical students with a semester/term gpa of 1.0 up to and including 1.9 will be placed on probation. Graduate students with a semester/term gpa of 2.0 up to    and including 2.9 will be placed on probation. 

    b. Undergraduate/technical students with a semester/term gpa that falls below 1.0 will be suspended. Graduate students with a semester/term gpa that falls below 2.0 will be suspended.

2. Students may be placed on either probation or suspension for failure to successfully complete all of the credits for which Oneida Higher Education has provided a grant award. Note: a course is not considered successfully completed unless credits are earned. 

    a. Students who do not complete all of the credits for which they were funded will be placed on probation. 

    b. Students who do not complete at least half of the credits for which they were funded will be suspended.

3. Students may be placed on either probation or suspension for combinations of #1 and #2 above. 

    a. If students complete at least half of the credits for which they were funded with a semester/term gpa of 1.0 or better for undergraduate/technical and 2.0 or better for graduate they will be placed on probation. 

    b. If students complete at least half of the credits for which they were funded but their semester/term gpa is below 1.0 for undergraduate/technical or 2.0 for graduate they will be suspended.

4. Students who do not meet the probation requirements listed on their Oneida Higher Education academic warning letter will be suspended.

5. Students who are on financial aid suspension through their school are not eligible for the Oneida Higher Education Grant.


PROBATION:
Students on probation will continue to receive the Oneida Higher Education Grant for their next semester or term. They are encouraged to meet with their school’s advisors to develop a plan for academic improvement. 

    a. During the students probation period they must complete all the credits for which they received an Oneida grant, with a gpa of a 2.0 or better as an undergraduate/technical school student or a 3.0 or better for a graduate student. 

    b. Students must send verification of their grades at the end of the semester or term to determine if they meet the program requirements. 

    c. Students who do not meet the probation requirements will be suspended.


SUSPENSION:
Students will be denied the Oneida Higher Education Grant while on suspension. To be reinstated, students have the following options: 

    a. Students must complete the same number of credits that were funded during the term of academic suspension. The student must earn a grade point average of 2.0 or better for undergraduate/technical credits and 3.0 or better for graduate credits that will count toward reinstatement. The student must rely on other funding sources during the suspension period. 

    b. Students may repay the entire Oneida Higher Education grant that was awarded to them for the semester/term in which they were placed on suspension status.
