GOOD ACADEMIC STANDING
Students who have a cumulative University of Minnesota GPA of 2.0 or higher are in good academic standing in the University.
ACADEMIC INTERVENTION or WARNING
Students in good standing with the University but who are not making satisfactory progress as defined by the specific degree program, or whose academic performance declines significantly, may be identified for academic intervention and be required to meet with an academic advisor before registration. Colleges who use academic intervention with students who are not making satisfactory progress in their program may change a student to an undeclared or pre-major code.
Students with a cumulative University of Minnesota GPA less than 2.0 are placed on academic probation.
Students who fail to achieve a cumulative University of Minnesota GPA of 2.0 during the probationary semester are subject to dismissal from the University. Students with a first-term GPA below 1.0 are subject to dismissal from the University without probation.
READMISSION AFTER DISMISSAL
Students dismissed from the University, who can demonstrate improved academic capability, may petition to be readmitted on a probationary basis after the lapse of at least one semester.
