Provisional Status may be granted to an on-campus applicant who provides complete documentation but not all of the records are official. The Office of Enrollment Services accepts unofficial transcripts during the admission process and will use them in part to consider granting Provisional Status. Unofficial transcripts will be accepted from the student or by fax from the institution but must be as similar to an official transcript as possible. Key elements must include courses taken, grades earned, credit hours, quality points, term GPA, and overall GPA. Degree audits and class schedules will not be accepted as unofficial transcripts. Courses will not be transferred at any time based on unofficial transcripts. Please refer to the Transfer of Credit section in the Academic Bulletin.
A student may enroll in general education courses under Provisional Status for only one trimester and must provide official copies of the unofficial documents prior to the end of that trimester. Once all official documents are received, the Provisional Status will be changed.
While on Provisional Status, a student is expected to meet the academic standards for Regular Admission Status as outlined in this Bulletin. A student not meeting academic requirements will be subject to the Probation or Dismissal policies as stated in the Admission Information section.
Provisional students will not be eligible for Federal Stafford or PLUS (Parent) Loans and will not be considered for admission to a degree program.
