taking a term off

Can you take a term off (summer) if you're on academic probation? 


  • I would double check with an academic advisor but I am pretty sure you can. You can take up to three semesters off in a row and then you would have to reapply to SFU. Even if you are on academic probation, I am pretty sure you can take the semester off. Unless you are required to withdraw / on the back on track program, I think you can. BUT you should still check with an advisor. I would actually just call up student services and ask them on the phone, they can probably tell you. Or, ask an advisor in person at student services.
