      • Students with no SHSU GPA (all new freshmen and transfer students).
      • Students who have below a 2.5 overall GPA.
      • Students subject to TSI requirements.
      • Students who have 90+ hours, including the current semester. This is to assure that they are on the right track towards graduation.
