Academic Probation and Suspension

All students attending Arkansas State University-Beebe are expected to make satisfactory progress in all attempted courses. Grades are calculated and evaluated at the end of the Fall and Spring semesters for probation and suspension status. Grades are not evaluated for probation or suspension status following a summer term. To be in good academic standing, all students must carry the required minimum cumulative grade point average as listed below. Students who fail to meet these standards will be placed on academic probation or suspension. They will also be contacted individually by an academic advisor for guidance.

Credit Hours Attempted

Minimum GPA



   30 and above


Students on academic probation will be limited to enroll in 12 credit hours until they achieve good academic standing. Students not achieving the minimum cumulative GPA as stated above shall be suspended until the end of the next Fall or Spring semester (Summer is not included).

Exceptions to the above suspension policy are as follows:

  1. Students attempting 1-11 hours and earning a 1.75 GPA will be given an Academic Warning only. No other action will be taken.

  2. Students on academic probation achieving at least a 2.00 GPA for each semester enrolled will be eligible to enroll in classes but will continue on academic probation until the minimum cumulative GPA is achieved.

  3. A student who has been suspended for poor scholarship may petition for immediate readmission by:

    1. Obtaining a petition form and a current ASU-Beebe transcript from the Registrar’s Office.

    2. Submitting the completed petition and transcript to the Admissions and Credits Committee.

Students may be required to be present when the committee convenes to consider the petition. Readmission is not automatic; each case will be judged on merit.

Transfer students who are on academic suspension at another college or university are not eligible to enroll at ASU-Beebe until the suspension is completed. Transfer students must be eligible to return to the last institution attended.
