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, the student will return to good academic standing.
- Students on academic probation who do not raise their cumulative grade point average to 2.0 or higher after completing 24 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.
