Satisfactory Academic Progress

The Math Department Warning serves as a reminder that the Department of Mathematics sets high standards for Math and Actuarial Science majors. If students do not meet satisfactory academic progress, they may be unable from continuing 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 University Faculty Rules.

Actions to Take While on Departmental Warning


Students that are placed on Departmental Warning will need to meet with an academic advisor to discuss their academic progress. Before meeting with their advisor, students should complete an Academic Recovery Worksheetwhich will be discuss with the academic advisor during the meeting. The Academic Recovery Worksheet is an online form that is sent in the Departmental Warning notification email. After completing their meeting with their advisor, students will be required to meet with their advisor again during the semester to discuss their progress and next semester course schedule. After this second meeting, the registration hold will be removed for the student's account allowing them to register for their next semester courses.
