I'm working on a project for a college that involves students who have done poor academic work, and I'm looking for a way to succinctly describe the various academic status codes that these students belong to (both in meetings and internally to the project, as I'm also the programmer).
In the past, the college referred to these students as "probationary" or "on suspension", but the new academic standards policy expanded its definition of these students from two groups to four (or six, or eight, depending on how rigorously you interpret the policy).
Currently, I'm just using "academic status" as a placeholder, but it's become awkward. I've considered using terms like demerit and disposition. However, demerit is a discrete noun, and while disposition more accurately describes the process-oriented nature of the new policy, it's a little too generic for my taste.
Can anyone suggest a more specific term that could describe a student's academic status, or am I close enough with demerit or disposition?
To be clear, I'm looking for a word that would describe the student's overall, college-level academic status (as in, your cumulative GPA qualifies you for [insert poor academic status descriptor here]).
