Select the academic standing action you want to learn more about:
A student is placed on academic probation when their cumulative grade point average drops below 2.000 at the conclusion of a fall or spring semester. Probation is not intended to be punitive, but instead serves as a warning that a student’s approach to their academic education may need to change in order to be successful. Once placed on academic probation, students are presented several options for returning to academic good standing.
If placed on academic probation, it is recommended students make an appointment with their academic advisor. Academic advisors are trained professionals who are able to develop an individualized plan to help students achieve academic good standing.
If a student is unable to achieve a 2.000 or higher cumulative grade point average at the conclusion of a final probation semester, they will be placed on scholastic suspension. While on scholastic suspension, students will be unable to register for or continue in any main campus courses on any of the campuses of the University of Colorado during any fall or spring semester. Students placed on scholastic suspension have several options available to earn reinstatement to the College of Arts & Sciences.
It is the student’s responsibility to notify the Office of the Assistant Dean when they qualify for reinstatement. No reinstatement action is taken automatically. Please contact the Office of the Assistant Dean at 303-492-7885 to inquire about reinstatement.
