Students Talking in the library

What is academic probation?

A student whose UHD GPA drops below 2.0 is placed on academic probation. If the student's UHD GPA does not improve in the semester thereafter, he/she will be placed on continued probation. After 3 consecutive semesters of a GPA below 2.0, the student will be placed on academic suspension.

What is academic suspension?

Students on academic suspension are ineligible to register or remain registered in classes for the next term/semester because the semester/term grade point average fails to meet the conditions of your academic probation (maintain a semester/term GPA of a 2.0 or greater). 

What if I am already registered for courses?

If you are currently registered for courses for the next academic term/semester, you will be automatically removed from all classes if placed on academic suspension. Students placed on academic suspension status are not permitted to enroll for the semester the suspension is in effect.

What happens after I have been placed on academic suspension?

If you wish to enroll in courses during the next term/semester, you must complete an appeal request to seek reinstatement and approval.  Check ​for more information on academic suspension.  ​

Who do I speak with about my academic status?​

It is recommended that you come in to speak with your academic advisor several times throughout the semester to prevent being placed on probation or suspension. However, if at the end of a semester you are not in good academic standing you may speak with your advisor about the necessary steps to take thereafter.
