During my freshman year, I was struggling with personal issues and my grades were affected as a result. These problems were mostly about self-image and self-esteem so they don't count as viable excuses for what happened, but I'm extremely worried and depressed because the half scholarship I got from being a National Merit Finalist is the only reason I've been able to afford college. I'm still waiting on my grade report but if my GPA falls below a 3.0, do I have at least another semester to bring up my grades or will I be terminated automatically?
