Promoting the Academic Success of Students (PASS)

What is PASS?

Promoting the Academic Success of Students (PASS) is a program designed to help students on academic probation reach good standing.

Students who are on academic probation must participate and complete PASS in order to be eligible to register for the following semester.

What is academic probation?

Chaminade University expects all students to maintain at least a 2.0 grade point average (GPA) in all courses taken here. Students whose cumulative GPA falls below 2.0 will be placed on academic probation the subsequent semester. Students who fail to meet the requirements to be removed from probation are subject to suspension the following semester. Students on academic probation must:

  • Take only 12-13 credits
  • Repeat basic and pre-requisite courses and get a “C” or better
  • Participate and complete PASS
  • Meet with an academic advisor

What are the requirements for PASS?

All students on academic probation MUST complete the following:

  1. Contact your advisor to set up an initial meeting (see below to find out who your advisor is). This meeting must be completed by the second week of the semester. You can contact your advisor by either email or phone.
    1. Complete the Self-evaluation Pre-test and bring it to your initial meeting
    2. Using the GPA calculator, figure out your goal GPA to bring your cumulative GPA to at least a 2.0.
  2. Attend at least two designated AAP Workshops. Spaces in these workshops are limited and must be reserved through your advisor by email in advance. Please check with your advisor for an updated list of qualifying workshops.
  3. Complete a Mid-term Report for each course you are enrolled in and have your instructor fill it out and sign it. Bring these reports to your mid-semester meeting with your academic advisor to discuss. This must be completed by the end of the 8th week.
  4. Once the above requirements are completed, you are eligible to register. Contact your advisor to confirm that you have met the requirements to register. Upon confirmation, your advising hold will be taken off and you will be able to register. Please note that if you do not get off probation at the end of the semester, your schedule may change depending on your academic status.
  5. Final meeting with your academic advisor is MANDATORY. Complete the Self-evaluation Post-Test and bring this to your meeting. You must meet with your advisor before the beginning of finals week.
