Notification (Academic Standing)
Written notification that a student is on probation, provisional registration, or suspension is sent to the student, to the student's academic adviser, and to other relevant university offices and individuals as soon as possible after the close of the quarter. Students also receive written notification of the outcome of their Petition to Appeal Academic Suspension or request to return after suspension. Current student status, such as whether a student is enrolled or not, is considered Directory Information for FERPA purposes at Stanford, and Stanford may provide either parent(s) or guardian(s) written notification of a change in student status. Provided that a student consents, or the student is a dependent for income tax purposes, Stanford may also provide either parent(s) or guardian(s) written notification that the student is on probation, provisional registration, suspension, or leave of absence (either voluntary or involuntary). Other FERPA exceptions may also apply.
