College policies require that all students maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 to remain in “good academic standing.”
At the end of each Fall and Spring semester, our College reviews all students’ academic records based on their cumulative GPAs.
If your cumulative GA is below 2.0, you will fall under “academic progress review” and are subject to academic dismissal from the College.
If you are under review, you will be notified by an e-mail to your Plattsburgh webmail account. This e-mail will come from the Provost/Vice-President for Academic Affairs.
If you receive an e-mail regarding academic progress, you should appeal immediately. You must follow the directions provided and adhere to the deadlines in the e-mail.
If your request to continue is approved, you will be allowed to enroll at Plattsburgh for the upcoming semester on academic probation.
If your request is denied, you will not be allowed to enroll at Plattsburgh for the upcoming semester. In order to keep your F-1 or J-1 status, you must have already made plans to transfer to another institution to continue your studies.
Once your dismissal is official and you have not transferred to another institution, your SEVIS record will be terminated. You must make plans to leave the U.S. as soon as possible.
There is a very good chance that a student will at some point need to withdraw or take a personal, non-medical leave of absence from SUNY Plattsburgh. Examples of personal, non-medical withdrawals and leaves of absence might be:
It is not possible to request a personal, non-medical withdrawal during the last ten calendar days of the semester.
Please note that the procedures laid out below are only for personal, non-medical withdrawals/leaves of absence. For medical/psychological withdrawals, contact the Center for Student Health & Psychological Services (518) 564-2187.
If you are transferring to another school, your SEVIS record will be officially transferred on the agreed release date. Please see the School Transfer website pages for the school transfer process.
If you are withdrawing completely from SUNY Plattsburgh and returning to your home country, your SEVIS record will be terminated.
When you are ready to return from a personal, non-medical withdrawal/leave of absence, please contact International Admissions and the International Student Advisor. You will receive advisement on readmission and immigration procedures for your return.
