Students are placed on scholastic probation at the end of the term in which their UGA cumulative GPA drops below 2.00. Students who fail to clear scholastic probation by raising their UGA cumulative GPA above 2.00 after one semester will be placed on continued probation.
Students are placed on continued probation if their UGA cumulative GPA remains below 2.00 for two or more consecutive semesters.
Students may stay on continued probation provided they are enrolled for a minimum of 6 semester hours (3 semester hours during the summer semester) and earn a term average of 2.30 or higher. The following policies apply in the computation of the minimum enrollment requirement and average:
Students may remove themselves from academic probation by achieving a 2.00 UGA cumulative GPA.
If a student on continued probation fails to meet the above criteria, the student will be placed on first dismissal.
Upon a first academic dismissal, a student may not re-enroll in the University until a full fall or spring semester has elapsed. Any FACS student wishing to return after a first dismissal may submit a letter of reinstatement to the Director of the Student Success and Advising Center, Cara Winston Simmons, at firstname.lastname@example.org. This request should be submitted by the midpoint of the semester following the first academic dismissal and include the following information:
After a second academic dismissal, students will be suspended from the University for a minimum of one calendar year. At the end of the suspension, permission to return to the University can be granted only by appealing to the University Educational Affairs Committee.
