Academic Probation

Probationary status is a warning that improved academic performance is required. If the probation GPA level assigned is not met in the following semester, the student is subject to drop rules. The minimum academic goal of any student should be to keep his or her GPA for any semester above 2.00.

A detailed description of the campus probation regulations appears in part 1, article 3-110 of the Student Code.

The rules are outlined here for convenience:

GPA Situation Probation Rule
Semester GPA < 2.0 for continuing students with cumulative GPA > 2.0
Incoming first-year students with a semester or summer GPA 2.0
2.00 probation
Cumulative GPA between 1.75 - 1.99 inclusive 2.25 probation
Cumulative GPA < 1.75 2.33 probation
Combined Transfer and U of I GPA < 2.0 2.00 probation

In addition, students may be placed on probation if they do not meet Technical GPA Requirements.
