Academic Standing

A student’s academic standing is determined by the cumulative grade point average. In order to graduate, the student must earn a minimum of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale at the University of Northern Colorado.

  • Students are placed on academic probation up to the next 24 credit hours at UNC if the cumulative grade point average (GPA) falls below a 2.0. When the cumulative GPA is raised to 2.0 or higher within the 24 probation credit window, the student will return to good academic standing.
  • Grades that count toward the 24 probation credit hours include all letter grades of A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, D-, F, as well as all Incompletes that have been finished. Grades not counted towards the 24 probation credit hours are I, NC, NR, NG, SU, U, W, UW, and CR.
  • Students on academic probation who do not raise their cumulative grade point average to 2.0 or higher after at the conclusion of the 24 probation credit hours at UNC will be suspended.
  • While on probation, if the student’s cumulative GPA falls below a 1.00, the student will be automatically suspended.
  • Students suspended from UNC may not apply for readmission until the passage of at least one term, Fall or Spring, unless extenuating circumstances exist and are documented.
  • Suspended students must successfully complete 12 semester hours of a 2.0 cumulative grade point average at another accredited institution, or present evidence of potential future academic success in order to be readmitted.
  • Applications and deadlines for readmission are available through the Office of Academic Support and Advising.
  • All applications are reviewed by the University Academic Review Committee. The University Academic Review Committee’s decisions are final.
  • A second academic suspension is considered a permanent suspension from future enrollment at UNC.
