Probation and Suspension FAQs

How many hours can I take if I’m placed on academic probation?

While on academic probation you are allowed to enroll in a maximum of 13 hours if placed on probation during a fall or spring semester and 7 hours during a summer session. 

What’s the quickest way to get off of academic probation?

Once you have been placed on academic probation, you must raise your cumulative GPA to at least a 2.0 in order to revert back to good academic standing. The quickest way to accomplish this is by repeating courses that you’ve made a “D” grade or repeating courses that you’ve failed. 

Will being placed on academic suspension affect my financial aid?

Unfortunately, it can affect your financial aid.  Federal funding for school requires you to make Satidfactory Academic Progress (SAP) towards your degree.  Find out more about Delgado's SAP Policy   

Is there someone I can talk to specifically about academic suspension?

Yes! Talk to your Academic Advisor, they can help you understand your academic standing, explain your options, and point you in the right direction.
