OSU MATH DEPARTMENT ACADEMIC WARNING

Body

The Math Department Warning serves as a reminder that the Department of Mathematics sets high standards for IMME, Math and Actuarial Science majors. If students do not meet satisfactory academic progress, they may be unable to continue their studies at The Ohio State University. Academic sanctions by the Department of Mathematics and/or the College of Arts and Sciences will be imposed if a student is not meeting satisfactory academic progress.

Students in the Department of Mathematics will be placed on Departmental Warning if they have a semester or cumulative GPA less than 2.0.  Students with cumulative GPA that drops below a 2.0 will face academic sanctions by the College of Arts and Sciences, up to and including dismissal from the university, per ASC Policy Rules.
