Academic Standing

Academic Standing

We are a university dedicated to educating the whole person—care for the whole person informs all that we do. We know that there are many reasons why a student might find themselves on academic warning or probation. These reasons can include personal, financial, health, family, or other issues. Our goal is to help you to identify the reasons unique to you and to help you address them. You are not alone in experiencing these difficulties. Many students are placed on academic warning or probation at some point during their time as a student and, by accessing campus resources and reaching out to others for support, most return to good academic standing and continue on to have a successful academic career at Seattle University.  

To ensure your success in Academic Pathways Advising at Seattle University, as a student on academic warning or probation you are required to meet the following academic requirements:

  • Be enrolled in a minimum of 12 and a maximum of 15 credits.
  • Earn a “C” or better in all classes.
  • No Incompletes or Withdrawals are allowed without permission of the Senior Director of University Advising.

Additionally, you must complete the following steps:

  • Meet with the Director of Academic Pathways Advising during the first week of the quarter to make any necessary changes to your schedule and create an action plan. 
  • Meet with your assigned advisor at least once during the quarter to discuss your mid-quarter progress and what classes you will take the following term.  

Failure to meet these requirements may result in your dismissal from Seattle University.
