Academic Eligibility

Academic Eligibility


If you are on academic suspension you may choose one of the options below:

  • You may enroll at ASU only during the summer terms in an attempt to reach a cumulative grade-point average that places you back in good academic standing (2.0 or above). Once your cumulative grade-point average reaches 2.0 or above, you will then be permitted to continue enrolling in future terms at ASU.
  • Any former Appalachian student that has not attempted any courses at Appalachian for a minimum of one (1) calendar year (including summer terms) and has earned at least thirty (30) new semester hours of transferable credit from other collegiate institutions since last attending Appalachian may apply for readmission under the One Year Forgiveness Policy. Eligibility for readmission under the One Year Forgiveness Policy is determined by averaging all grades earned in transferable coursework at another accredited institution with all grades earned previously at Appalachian State. This combined average, as determined by Appalachian State, must be at least a 2.00 on a 4.00 scale.
  • Any former Appalachian student that has not attempted any courses at Appalachian for a minimum of two (2) calendar years (including summer terms) may apply for readmission under the Two Year Forgiveness Policy. Eligibility for readmission under the Two Year Forgiveness Policy is determined by averaging all grades earned in transferable coursework since leaving Appalachian State. This combined average, as determined by Appalachian State, must be at least a 2.00 on a 4.00 scale. Please review our website for additional details on Forgiveness Policies.
