To remain in good academic standing at the University of Colorado Boulder a student must maintain at least a 2.0cumulative grade point average (GPA) and make satisfactory progress toward the degree as defined by the student’s college/school. Academic Alert and Academic Warning are official standings indicating that a student’s cumulative GPAdoes not meet the minimum academic standard of 2.0.
Academic Watch (unofficial standing): A notice from the College of Music indicating a concern with a student’s academic record approaching the threshold for Academic Alert or Warning. A follow-up advising session will be required between the student and academic advisor.
Academic Alert (ALRT): The academic standing of a first semester student (first-year or transfer) whose cumulative CU GPA does not meet the minimum standard of 2.0.
Academic Warning (ACWR): The academic standing of a continuing student (second semester and beyond) whose cumulative CU GPA does not meet the minimum standard of 2.0. Students who earn a term GPA of 2.30 or higher while on Academic Warning can continue on Academic Warning for two terms without being suspended.

Conditionally Enrolled (CENR): The academic standing of a student who wishes to be reinstated after being on Academic Suspension may work to raise their cumulative GPA by: 1) enrolling in Division of Continuing Education classes (evening, online, or applied music). The student must successfully achieve a 2.3 term GPA or above (no courses taken pass/fail) for each fall or spring enrolled term in CE. Incomplete coursework does not prevent or delay dismissal; 2) enrolling in summer session courses at any CU campus. Grades will be calculated into the cumulative GPA; 3) taking one calendar year off with no enrollment at any institution. After returning, the student will have the same cumulative GPA as when they were suspended but will have two terms, in addition to summer, to raise their cumulative CU GPA to a 2.0 and be in good academic standing.
