Declared theatre majors must maintain a 2.5 cumulative GPA in all Theatre courses. University GPAs will be reviewed from current SIS postings for the previous semester.
  • Students who typically fall below a 2.0 cumulative GPA are placed on academic notice or academic probation by the University. Students on academic notice or probation will not be allowed to participate in any theatre production sanctioned by the Department of Theatre.
  • Theater majors who fall below a 2.5 GPA in their Theatre courses or who are on academic notice or probation will receive an email from the Department Head to their okstate.edu email address stating that they have been suspended from the production season until their GPA reaches the minimum required to participate. During the semesters of suspension, the student will not be allowed to participate in any theatre production sanctioned by the Department of Theatre.
  • Theatre majors employed by the Department of Theatre who are placed on academic notice or academic probation by the university, or whose GPA in Theatre courses falls below 2.5, will be ineligible to participate in the Theatre production season according to the policy above. Student employees will be released from employment and will be reemployed only at the discretion of the Theatre faculty.
  • Elements of this Policy may be suspended only upon successful written appeal to the entire Theatre faculty by a student.
