Academic Standing Policy

Below is the Academic Standing Policy for Move On When Ready students. The policy is effective beginning Spring 2016.

MOWR students who earn below a 2.0 Institutional GPA for the first time and whose Academic Standing is “Warning 1must meet with their Georgia Southern advisor prior to the start of classes the following semester of enrollment to discuss their progress and the requirements that must be fulfilled while they are on Warning 1. In addition to the initial meeting with their advisor, students will have to meet with a Specialist in the Academic Success Center at least two times before the end of the semester.

Students that earn below a 2.0 Institutional GPA for the second time while participating in the MOWR program, whose Academic Standing is “Probation 1” or whose Academic Standing is “Warning 1” for the second time, are required to enroll in GSU 1120, Methods of Learning. GSU 1120 is not covered by the Move On When Ready program and, as a result, students who wish to continue in the program will have to pay tuition and fees associated with that course. The maximum number of credit hours that students may take that semester is no more than 14, including the 2 credit hours from Methods of Learning. Therefore, students must meet with their Georgia Southern advisor the week before classes start in their next semester of enrollment to discuss necessary changes to their schedule.

MOWR students that wish to attend Georgia Southern after high school graduation who earned below a 2.0 Institutional GPA in their last semester as a MOWR student are required to enroll in GSU 1120, Methods of Learning, during their first semester as a traditional student, full- or part-time, regardless of Academic Standing. The maximum number of credit hours that students may take that semester is no more than 14, including the 2 credit hours from Methods of Learning. Therefore, students must meet with their Georgia Southern advisor the week before classes start in their next semester of enrollment to discuss necessary changes to their schedule.
