"Academic Warning" is just that, "a warning." Academic Warning does NOT prevent registration nor access to any other student services on campus. Academic Warning is intended to warn you that if you fail to meet any of the Academic Standards in another semester, you will move to Academic Probation. To see the effects of Academic Probation, proceed to the "Probation" tab.
Academic Warning occurs the first time you do not meet one or more of BYU-Idaho’s three Academic Standards .
The " AASW Hold" does NOT prevent registration nor access to any other student service on campus. The "AASW hold" is a reminder to complete the Achieving Academic Success Workshop (AASW) in your I-learn account. You will not be able to return to Good Academic Standing until you have completed this course.
The University understands it may take time to raise a cumulative GPA above a 2.0 especially if you've had a bad early semester. If your cumulative GPA is less tham 2.0 and you meet all of the other academic standards of BYU-Idaho you will not go on Probation. You will stay on Warning until your Cumulative GPA is above 2.0.

FAQs

Your academic standing has changed to Academic Probation because you failed to meet BYU-Idaho’s three Academic Standards for a second time.
A “Probation Hold” does not prevent registration but does restrict your registration to 12 credits or less per semester. It is your responsibility to know if being placed on Academic Probation will impact any of your other various student services, activities, or programs.
We want students to be successful academically. We have found it beneficial for students to take 12 credits or less per semester until they have changed the habits or patterns that led to Academic Probation—particularly because any future failure to meet the Academic Standards may lead to Academic Suspension.
The University understands it may take time to raise a cumulative GPA above a 2.0 especially if you've had a bad early semester. If your cumulative GPA is less tham 2.0 and you meet all of the other academic standards of BYU-Idaho you will not go on Suspension. You will stay on Probation until your Cumulative GPA is above 2.0.

To return to Academic Probation:

  • Sit out for two consecutive semesters following Academic Suspension.
