Academic Ineligibility

Students on academic probation or academic dismissal are ineligible:

  • to participate in intercollegiate athletic practice or competition;
  • to participate on University-sponsored music and ministry groups;
  • to participate in selected activities that officially represent the University to the public, as determined by the Office of Academic Affairs;
  • to hold any appointed or elected office within the Student Government Association or other University clubs or organizations.

Students under certain discipline contracts administered by the Office of Student Life may also be ineligible to participate in the above listed activities.

A list of candidates for leadership positions in all student organizations must be submitted to the University Registrar for an eligibility check one week prior to publishing or printing a ballot. A list of those students under consideration for groups that officially represent the university must be presented to the University Registrar’s office for an eligibility check prior to consideration for selection or payment of required deposits for group participation. Students receiving academic probation or dismissal during a semester of service must relinquish student leadership or church relations ministry group positions immediately upon notification of academic probation or dismissal. The continued involvement of students chosen for activities officially representing the University, who receive notification of academic probation after paying required deposits, but prior to actual participation, will be judged on a case-by-case basis by the Office of Academic Affairs; those receiving academic dismissal will become ineligible for participation.
