Academic Standing

The College of Southern Idaho’s Academic Standing Policy derives from the success of students in their courses. Pictured below is the process by which academic standing is determined.

Students should strive to remain in Good Academic Standing by keeping a cumulative GPA of a 2.0 or higher. In situations where that minimum is not met, students have the opportunity to review the policy and gain knowledge on identifying reasons for the drop and resources that can assist in raising the GPA back to Good Academic Standing.

The official policy can also be found in the CSI Catalog.

Good Academic Standing

(Maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA  or higher)

  • Status noted on transcript.
  • At any point when the student cumulative GPA rises to a 2.0 or higher, the student achieves Good Academic Standing
  • The 2.0 cumulative GPA is a CSI benchmark for graduation and federal financial aid eligibility 

Academic Warning

(Cumulative GPA falls below 2.0)

  • Status noted on transcript
  • A registration hold is placed on the student's CSI record until the student completes an online activity


Academic Probation

(While on Academic Warning, cumulative GPA remains below 2.0)

  • Status noted on transcript
  • The student is required to complete a Plan for Academic Student Success (PASS) with a Student Success Advisor every semester until they have achieved Good Academic Standing


Academic Suspension

(While on Academic Probation, term GPA falls below 2.0)

  • Status noted on transcript
  • Students must sit out one semester, excluding summer. The assigned Student Success Advisor will conduct an exit interview and inform the student of resources available during their required break and discuss their re-entry plan
  • Students may appeal to be re-instated with provisional status
  • After sitting out one semester, the student may re-enroll under a Plan for Academic Student Success (PASS) with a Student Success Advisor
  • If the term GPA falls below 2.0, the student is required to sit out one semester excluding summer.
