Academic Warning

What Happens When I am on Academic Warning

  1. You will be notified of your warning status in an e-mail from the Office of the Provost in Academic Affairs
  2. A registration hold is placed on your account while on academic warning. This hold is meant to protect you from making an uninformed decision. You will work with a University Advisor to take care of this hold. 
  3. Your Financial Aid is on "WARNING". Please contact Campus Hub, (507) 389-1866, for details on your specific financial aid status.
  4. You will need to work with University Advising to discuss your academic standing and to develop a student success plan.
    • You will receive information via phone and email from University Advising with steps you need to take, and requirements of your academic warning status.

What should I do if I am on Academic Warning? 

  1. University Advising will contact you at the beginning of the semester. 
  2. You will need to attend a student success retreat.
