Academic Warning Hold

If your cumulative PSU GPA falls below 2.00, you are placed on Academic Warning. A registration hold is applied to your student account until you complete an Academic Success Plan Workshop or have an appointment with an academic adviser in Advising & Career Services (ACS).

Often, students on Academic Warning also are placed into Warning Status for financial aid eligibility. Please note that the processes for these are separate. Check your financial aid status on your Banweb account under the Financial Aid tab. Financial aid counselors are available to meet with you to explain your status. Learn more about the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) policy or schedule an appointment with a financial aid counselor now.

Portland State University is committed to your success and looks forward to working with you to improve your academic standing. For more information, please review PSU's Academic Standing standards.

Two options for removing your hold

Online Academic Success Plan Workshop

The Online Academic Success Plan Workshop will explain the Academic Standing policy.

Please allow yourself 30-45 minutes to complete the workshop. You will need to provide your PSU student ID number in order to have the hold removed from your account.
