To remain in good academic standing at the university, students must maintain a minimum grade point average of 2.0. If a student's overall GPA goes below a 2.0, the student is placed on scholastic probation. Students on probation must complete at least 12 hours in each long-session semester (fall or spring), and may not receive any incomplete grades at the end of the semester.
Please download the dismissal appeal form to submit your dismissal appeal. The form and additional documents are due Tuesday, May 28th, 2013 at 12PM (noon) in the Undergraduate Program Office (CBA 2.400).
Students on scholastic probation are eligible to participate in the McCombs Comprehensive Advising, Retention and Enrichment (CARE) Program. The student will meet with their academic advisor to discuss resources available on campus, and set goals for the semester. If the student successfully completes the requirements of the CARE contract, the student may continue the next semester. If you are interested in learning more about the CARE program, please schedule an appointment with your advisor by calling 512-471-0690 or stopping by CBA 2.400.
