Academic Suspension FAQs
What is Suspension?
Students who have less than a 2.0 cumulative grade point average are considered “At Risk of Failing.” There are 3 levels of “At Risk” students at Bucks: Academic Warning, Probation, and Suspension. Suspension is the most severe of the 3 levels. If you were on Probation for 2 consecutive semesters, you are in danger of being suspended. If Suspended, you are not allowed to attend the College for the designated semester.
What does this mean?
- It means that you are prohibited from attending the upcoming semester.
I already registered for the next semester. What will happen?
- Denise May, Chairperson of the Academic Performance Committee will review your transcript. You should contact Ms. May immediately at 2215-968-8252 or at email@example.com
I will not register for the next semester. What should I do?
- During the semester when you are prohibited from registering and attending, meet with an Academic Advisor to gain insight into the areas that are a problem and suggestions on how to improve your academic performance.
Can I ever come back?
- Yes, after you have “sat out” a semester, you may apply for reinstatement.
How do I do this?
- Complete the Application for Reinstatement. You can send to Admissions and we will forward it to the Academic Performance Committee.

What happens then?
