What is "Academic Probation?"
If you are visiting this website, you were likely placed on academic probation. What is academic probation? What impact will it have on me? We are here to assist you as you find yourself on academic probation.
A student is placed on academic probation when their UCF cumulative GPA drops below a 2.00. A student must receive at least a 2.00 term GPA the semester after being placed on probation to remain at the University. If a student fails to do so, they will be disqualified from the University. A student who is disqualified may not enroll at UCF for a minimum of two semesters following disqualification. Readmission into the University is never guaranteed.
What exactly does that mean?
You have been placed on academic probation because your UCF cumulative GPA fell below a 2.00.
If you do not receive at least a 2.00 term GPA in the following semester, you will be disqualified from UCF and must sit out for at least two semesters before you can re-apply for admission. Readmission to UCF is never guaranteed.
If you do achieve a 2.00 or higher term GPA in the following semester, you are eligible to continue enrollment at the University. You will be removed from academic probation once your UCF cumulative GPA is back up to a 2.00 or higher. A student can remain on probationary status for multiple semesters as he/she works to improve their UCF cumulative GPA.
However, while a student is on probationary status it is important to understand that as soon as they fail to earn a 2.00 term GPA they will be disqualified from UCF.
How did I end up on academic probation?
You are probably asking yourself this question often (and perhaps your parents have voiced the same concern!). It is important that you acknowledge that you did not meet with great academic success in the past semester, but you are committed to make the necessary changes to make things different as you begin a new semester.
Academic Standing is your status with UCF. This standing is determined by your progress in course completion. It is important that you are aware of your Academic Standing as a UCF student. Find your standing at MyUCF and familiarize yourself with these three standings:
Indicates that the student is meeting the minimum academic standard for retention by UCF (minimum term GPA, 2.00). However, to meet graduation requirements the student must have a minimum UCF cumulative GPA of 2.00 or better.
Indicates that a student's UCF cumulative GPA dropped below 2.00. Academic Probation will continue until the current term and the UCF cumulative GPA reach 2.00 or better.
Indicates that a student on Probationary status failed to achieve a minimum 2.00 GPA. A student who is disqualified may not enroll at UCF for a minimum of two semesters following disqualification. Re-admission after two semesters is not guaranteed.
