Academic action can be both favorable and disciplinary. When a student is performing well, all action on him/her in the academic area is said to be favorable to the student. For example, when a student obtains a high GPA he/she is put on the academic List of Honors; when he/she consistently achieves very high marks, he/she is given higher honors. However, if his/her achievement is below standard, disciplinary action may be taken against him/her.
