Why am I on academic probation?

  • You are on academic probation because your MeredithGPA at the end of the last semester was below the minimum for the total number of hours attempted for all semesters. When a student fails to achieve minimum progress, she will be placed on academic probation for the following semester. When she does not achieve minimum progress the following semester she is placed on Probation II.

  • Minimum Expected

  • Total Hours Attempted Meredith GPA

  • 1-16 Hours GPA 1.5

  • 17-25 Hours GPA 1.7

  • 26-59 Hours GPA 1.8

  • 60-89 Hours GPA 1.9

  • 90+ Hours GPA 2.0

Looking at your transcript, the TOT-DATE row and HRS ATT column gives you your total hours attempted. The TOT-MER GPA is your latest Meredith GPA.

Things I must do while on probation

When a student fails to achieve minimum progress, she will be placed on academic probation for the following semester. A student on probation must conform to the following guidelines the next semester in which she is enrolled:

Failure to satisfy all these requirements will result in a delay of future class registration until the student has presented detailed plans for correcting her academic deficiencies to Academic and Career Planning.

  • 1. Register for no more than 14 hours

  • Enroll in ENG 111 if her general education composition requirement has not been met

  • Repeat courses in which a D or F was earned

  • Complete an academic success workshop (this online workshop counts as your academic success workshop) and Contract for Academic Improvement followed by a meeting with an Advisor in Academic and Career Planning. These meetings must occur within the first month of classes.

Let s begin l.jpg
Let’s begin

Looking at the first section of the form, Contract for Academic

Improvement, think about the goals you set for last semester and

answer the following questions ON YOUR CONTRACT. If you cannot

remember your goals from last semester, list the things that you had

wanted to accomplish last semester.

List below the goals you made last semester following the probation workshop:

1.

2.

3.

Did you meet those goals?

If so, what helped you meet those goals? What worked well for you that you would like to continue to put into practice?

If not, why not? What prevented you or stopped you from meeting them?

How will this semester be different from last semester? Be specific.

There are resources available for students who are having trouble meeting their goals. The next few slides outline some of those resources…

Resources

  • All students encounter challenges during their academic career. The key to success is identifying YOUR roadblocks and taking action towards resolving the problem. Here are some links to resources that can help you:

  • If you are having trouble with…

  • Goal Setting or motivation, visitAcademic and Career Planning.Sometimes students struggle because they do not know what they want to major in or lack focus in their studies.

  • Study skills or time management, visit Academic and Career Planning.We can provide resources to help you or offer regular coaching meetings.

  • Personal issues, like loneliness, roommate problems, family issues, or trouble adjusting to college, visit theCounseling Center.If you are distracted by personal issues, counseling may help you cope better so you may focus on your studies.

  • Financial issues, visitFinancial Assistance.Sometimes students spend more time at work and don’t have enough time to study. Financial Assistance may be able to help you with your financial situation.

  • A disability, visitDisability Services. This office also can assist students who question whether a possible disability may be the cause of academic difficulty.

Nuts & Bolts about GPAs

You will need to learn more GPAs before continuing the contract.

  • What is a GPA?

  • How do I calculate my GPA?

  • What about multiple semesters?

  • How do I read or understand my transcript?

  • Why do I have three GPA totals on my Meredith transcript?

  • How does repeating a course help my GPA?

  • What is the minimum GPA I must earn to get off academic probation?

  • What grades to I need to earn to reach my GPA goal?

Slide13 l.jpg

GPA = Quality Points ÷ Hours Attempted

Your GPAis determined by dividing the total number of quality points that you have earned by the number of hours you have attempted.

For example, if you have earned a total

of 90 quality points and have attempted

50 credit hours, your GPA will be 90 ÷ 50,

or 1.8

exit

.


Slide14 l.jpg

GPA = Quality Points ÷ Hours Attempted

Quality points(QP) are calculated by multiplying the number of credit hours for a course by the numerical equivalent of the grade you earn in the course.

Each letter grade has the following numerical equivalency:

A = 4 B = 3 C = 2 D = 1 F = 0

If you earn an A in a three credit-hour course you will have earned 12 quality points (3 hrs x 4 = 12QP) for the course.

Multiply the grade in each course by the number of credit hours for the course

and then add the totals for each class together for your semester total. Example:

CORE 100 (4 credits) x B (3.0) = 12 QP Mat 130 (3 credits) x C (2.0) = 6 QP

Psy 100 (3 credits) x A (4.0) = 12 QP Art 101 (3 credits) x B (3.0) = 9 QP

Total semester Quality Points = 12 + 12 + 6 + 9 = 39 QP

exit


Slide15 l.jpg

How to Calculate a GPA

  • Calculate the quality points for each subject.

  • Add the quality points from all the subjects.

  • Divide by the total number of hours attempted.

Remember…A = 4 B = 3 C = 2 D = 1 F = 0

ENG 111 3 hours B (3 hrs. x 3 = 9 quality points)

MAT 144 3 hours A (3 hrs. x 4 = 12 quality points)

BIO 101 3 hours C (3 hrs. x 2 = 6 quality points)

BIO 141 1 hour B (1 hr. x 3 = 3 quality points)

CORE 100 4 hours B (4 hrs. x 3 = 12 quality points)

Total quality points = 42 Total hours attempted = 14 GPA = 3.0

GPA = Total Quality Points ÷ Total Hours Attempted

42 QP ÷ 14 hrs. = 3.0 GPA for the semester

Gpa for multiple semesters l.jpg
GPA for Multiple Semesters

To determine your GPA over multiple semesters, add your quality points and hours attempted from ALL semesters and follow the GPA formula:

GPA = Total Quality Points ÷ Total Hours Attempted

  • This student is on probation I status at the end of the semester because her total Meredith GPA (1.429) was below the minimum of 1.8 since her total hours attempted (37 hrs.) fell within the range of 26 - 59 hours attempted.

  • TOT-SEM (semester GPA), TOT-MER (cumulative total GPA at

    Meredith), and TOT-DATE (cumulative total GPA from Meredith plus any other institution’s credits transfer) ** numbers will differ from other rows when credits from another institution transfer to Meredith.

  • TOT-MERGPA and TOT-DATE, HRS ATT determines academic standing. Increasing your hours attempted requires you to increase your quality points which could make it very difficult to get off probation. This is why it is important to repeat courses with Ds and Fs (see next slide).

The recommended way to improve your GPA is to repeat courses because this will increase your quality points while keeping your hours attempted down.

The hours attempted for repeated courses are not counted in the GPA calculations.

This student’s new hours attempted for her Spring semester was only 6 due to the two repeated classes. She was considered a full time student because she carried 12 hrs, but for GPA purposes we only looked at the new hours attempted.

She is now off probation because her TOT-MER GPA (1.9) is over the minimum MER GPA of 1.7 for hours attempted in the range of 17 -25 hrs (20).

Advantages of repeating your courses l.jpg
Advantages of repeating your courses

Repeating your courses this semester will help you raise your GPA.By repeating two of her courses, she was able to get off probation with only C and D grades this semester because her hours attempted were not calculated in the TOT-MER GPA once again. Earning a D to get off probation is not recommended.

When repeating a course with a D grade, the calculations will reflect the difference between the D and your new grade.Since she earned 3.00 QP the first time when she earned a D in HIS 103, the C grade from the repeated course is calculated at 3.00 QP instead of 6.00 QP (6 - 3 = 3 QP). If she had earned a B, then it would have been the difference of the B (9 pts) from the D (3 pts) giving her 6.00 QP (9 - 3= 6 QP) for repeating her course. This applies to other letter grades, i.e., repeat C course to get a B or A.

A minimum TOT-MER GPA of 1.7 is needed for 17 - 25 hours attempted to be considered in good academic standing in our sample.

Our student got a 1.9 GPA because her quality points went up to 38 and her hours attempted were only 20. 38 divided by 20 equals 1.9.

By not repeating her D or F classes, this student increased her total hours attempted to 27 hrs. instead of 20 hrs. from repeating the courses. Now her required minimum GPA has increased to 1.8 due to the increase in her total hours attempted.

She is now on Probation II status because she still has not reached her minimum expected MER GPA.

2. Now subtract any hours from courses you are repeating this semester. 6 for student X

3. This is your new total hours attempting for this semester. 8 for student X. She is considered full time at 14 hrs, but it is the 8 hrs we use in calculating her GPA.

4. Add the total from step 3 to the TOT-DATE, HRS ATT column. 8 + 15 = 23 hrs

5. Go to the CHART and find what your minimum expected Meredith GPA. Student X’s minimum GPA is 1.7 based on her 23 total hrs att (step. 4).

Grades i will need to earn to reach my minimum gpa goal l.jpg

Now, determine the grades you will need for each course you are taking this semester using the chart below. Be prepared to discuss this during your follow-up appointment with Academic and Career Planning. Example:

If you were taking four 3-credit courses and your targeted quality point total was

30, then you could earn 3 Bs and 1 C (27 + 6 = 33) to exceed your target and to

assure you get off probation. Another way would be to earn 1 A and 3 Cs (12 +

18 = 30) but this places you at the borderline.
