Assuming that you meet semester continuation requirements, if you earn a single grade of F or a second grade of D, you will be sent a letter of Academic Warning. If you receive such a letter, you are not required to take any formal steps (as you would if you were placed on probation). However, you should seriously consider the circumstances that led to that D or F grade and evaluate what steps you might take to enhance success in the future. You may want to discuss the Warning with your academic dean.
Note: No more than two courses graded D may be counted toward the 34 cc total needed to graduate. A third or subsequent D will not count in this way toward graduation requirements, but it can fulfill other curricular requirements, such as Area of Knowledge and Modes of Inquiry requirements, semester continuation, and requirements of the major.
