Academic Standings

Academic Probation is taken very seriously by the College of Health and Public Affairs. Students are expected to maintain good academic standing. Academic probation is used to inform students of their need to alter study habits and to seek additional academic advising in order to remain at UCF.

Academic probation is action taken when a student's UCF cumulative GPA drops below 2.0.

Students on Academic Probation

  • Must earn a 2.0 semester GPA in the next enrolled term in order to remain at UCF and avoid disqualification
  • Are expected to contact the College of Health and Public Affairs Undergraduate Student Services for mandatory probation initiatives
  • Will be placed on academic hold and must complete Student Success modules in Webcourses and attend a GPA Workshop in which they will be made aware of the university's probation policies and have the registration hold removed
  • Are not eligible to graduate from UCF until they raise their UCF cumulative GPA above a 2.0 and are removed from probation

Continued on Probation

  • Students placed on academic probation who earn a 2.0 semester GPA in the following semester, but who still do not raise their UCF grade point average (UCF Cumulative GPA) above a 2.0, will be continued on probation.
  • Each term while listed as continued on probation, the student must receive a 2.0 semester GPA or face disqualification.
  • Advisors in Undergraduate Student Services are available to meet with students continuing on probation to review their progress.
  • Students are not eligible to graduate from UCF until they raise their UCF cumulative GPA above a 2.0 and are removed from probation

Disqualification

  • Students on academic probation must earn above a 2.0 semester GPA in the subsequent term, or they will be academically disqualified from UCF.
  • Disqualification means that the student is no longer a UCF student and will be unable to enroll in courses at UCF.
  • Disqualified students seeking to return to a major in COHPA will need to apply for readmission to UCF after a minimum of two consecutive semesters absence from UCF.
  • Students applying for readmission must contact the Registrar's Office for application and must also contact Undergraduate Student Services at 407-823-0010 to discuss the petition process.
  • Readmission to UCF and a major in COHPA is not automatic or guaranteed.
