Academic Probation Decreases At USD

Academic Probation Decreases At USD

As we get closer to graduation day, the University of South Dakota saw a decrease in Students on Academic Probation last semester.

Academic Probation at USD is given to a student that finishes a semester with a grade point average under 2.0. Last semester 148 first year-students were placed on probation, which is down 53 students from 2010.

Officials at USD say the Muenster University Center expansion has led to more students being able to get to the library and study.

The decrease of students of probation is even more significant as the enrollment of the university continues to increase. 

“We're seeing lower total numbers of students on probation at the same time that we're seeing higher total numbers of students so the percentage of students on academic probation is really dropping,” Director of Academic and Career Planning Steve Ward said.

There were a total of 272 USD students on academic probation last semester.
