Large Number of Students on Academic Probation at North Carolina A&T

Statistics show about one in four undergraduate students who enrolled in the fall is under academic probation or suspension.

That total, 2562 students out of an undergraduate enrollment of 9687, was significantly higher than other similar public universities in the region.

That compares to about 8% on probation at UNC Greensboro, and about 7% at Winston-Salem State University, a historically black university like A&T.

Officials at A&T say its probation rate is up because of a renewed and strict compliance of university policies.
