Exception: If a student, who is not already on probation from the Fall, ends the Spring semester with probationary grades, that student will be placed on Academic Probation, not Suspension, for the following Fall semester. Only students who remain on Academic Probation for two consecutive semesters will be placed on Academic Suspension.
