Students will be dismissed from Luther College when their cumulative GPA falls below 1.00. Students on academic probation also risk dismissal from Luther College. Full-time students on probation will be dismissed if:
The college reserves the right at any time to dismiss any student who was not previously on academic probation.
If a student has experienced extenuating circumstances that resulted in academic dismissal, an option to appeal is available. The deadline to appeal a Fall 2018 Dismissal is noon on January 8, 2019. To begin the Academic Appeal process you must complete the Dismissal Appeal Form. Students must be logged in to Norse Apps in order to access the form.
Any request for future readmission to Luther must be presented as a formal application. Typically only applications for re-entry supported by one or more semesters of full-time enrollment in transferable courses (with grades of C- or higher and a GPA of 2.50 or higher) at another accredited institution will be considered.
