Academic Advising

Academic Probation Advising

Academic advisors should review the academic status of their assigned academic advisees as part of each interaction. Students are automatically placed on academic probation when their cumulative GPA falls below 2.0. Academic probation is meant to be an early warning system that a student is not making satisfactory progress toward graduation and may be subject to suspension, dismissal and/or permanent dismissal in a future term if academic eligibility criteria are not met.

Academic advisors should ensure students on academic probation are aware of what they need to do to remain eligible to enroll at Clemson in the next semester. Review academic eligibility criteria and let students know whether they are subject to suspension, dismissal or permanent dismissal at the end of the current term.

Communication with Students

Students with less than a 2.0 cumulative GPA are invited via email to participate in Success Matters | Reboot as coordinated by the Academic Success Center. Designated success matters advisors conduct outreach to these students at the beginning of each semester. Their primary goal is to assist students in identifying resources that will set them up for success in the upcoming semester.

Students may review this messaging by logging into CU Navigate. Some communications are uploaded as “Notes,” while others are found under “Conversations.”

More robust training and resources are provided to academic advisors supporting the Success Matters program each semester.
