Academic Standing — Probation and Suspension

Good Academic Standing

Undergraduate students who possess a total institutional GPA of 2.0 or above are in good academic standing. Certain programs such as teacher education and others may have more stringent GPA requirements. Please refer to college-specific catalog pages for details.

Academic Probation

An undergraduate student who fails to maintain good academic standing will be placed on academic probation and referred to an academic advisor. Academic probation is a warning and will be reflected on the UNF transcripts. Certain programs may have more stringent probation policies. Please refer to college-specific catalog pages for details.

Academic Suspension and Dismissal

If the total institutional GPA falls below 2.0 at the end of a semester in which a student is on academic probation, then the student will be eligible for academic suspension. Please note: certain College of Education and Human Services majors have different GPA requirements and should refer to the College of Education and Human Services Probation/Suspension section of the catalog.

If suspended, the student will be dropped from any subsequent term coursework for which they are currently registered and denied the opportunity to re-enroll. The duration of suspension varies by college. Email notification is sent by the Office of Records and Registration to students who are placed on academic suspension. Written notification may additionally be sent to students from their respective college or First Year Advising (FYA). UNF transcripts will reflect academic suspension.

A suspended student who desires to be readmitted to the same major field as when last enrolled may do so upon the written recommendation of the advisor, the department chair and/or departmental committee designated by the department and the college in which the student was last enrolled at the time they were academically suspended. The dean may deny a student's continued registration in the department. A student suspended from a degree program at UNF who wishes to be readmitted into another UNF degree program must have the readmission approved by the appropriate advisor, the department chair or the departmental committee of both programs. Readmission procedures vary by college.

Degree-seeking UNF students (except for teacher education majors) who receive credit for upper-level coursework at another institution while suspended from UNF may transfer these credits back to UNF with permission from the appropriate UNF advisor, department chair or departmental committee.

First Time in College students are expected to maintain good academic standing in their initial matriculation term. Students who do not maintain good academic standing will be required to meet with their academic advisor to review their subsequent term schedule prior to the start of the next applicable term.

Students who fall below a 2.0 current term GPA will be tracked by the Office of Records and Registration and reported to the appropriate college advising unit.
