What are academic warning status and academic probation?
Academic Warning Status
Freshmen who have completed fewer than 14 units at the University with a University of Arizona cumulative grade-point average between 1.750 and 2.000, or who have completed from 14 through 26 units at the University with a University of Arizona cumulative grade-point average of between 1.840 and 2.000 will be on academic warning status. Academic warning status invokes no academic penalties and will not be indicated on the student's permanent record. This status serves as a warning to students beginning their college careers that their performance is below the level required for successful completion of an academic program. Students in this status are strongly urged to seek academic counseling.
Students not meeting the standards of normal progress or academic warning status will be on probation. Students on probation are subject to such restrictions with respect to courses and extracurricular activities as may be imposed by the academic dean of the college in which the student is enrolled. Students are removed from probation upon earning the minimum (UAC)
What should I do if I end up on academic probation?
If you are on academic probation (your cumulative gpa is below a 2.00), you will want to see an academic advisor at the Freshman Year Center to discuss your academic record. Tutoring is available through the Freshman Year Student Study Center and through many academic departments at the UA. The University Learning Center offers workshops fall and spring semester that assist students in improving their study skills. Discussing your progress with your instructor is another important key to improving your class performance. Determining the reasons why you were not successful academically will be important in making the necessary changes to improve your gpa. (FYC)
What does it mean to be disqualified from the university or my college?
Disqualification is of two types: from a particular college in the University or from the University. A student may be academically disqualified only after two consecutive regular semesters of not meeting the standards of normal progress (cumulative grade-point average of 2.0) or academic warning status; or under conditions described below under "Probation or Disqualification by Special Action".
The student recommended for disqualification from a particular college may seek immediate admission to another college in the University. Permission for admission to another college must be obtained in writing from the dean of the college into which the student plans to transfer. The letter of permission should be presented to the Office of the Registrar. Ordinarily permission will be granted only if the student plans to pursue a modified program in a curriculum of the new college and has demonstrated ability warranting such action. Those who have been given college disqualification are strongly urged to seek thorough academic and vocational counseling and guidance. Failure to secure approval to transfer to another college in the University is tantamount to university disqualification and the rules governing this type of disqualification then will apply. A disqualified student may not attend the University as a non-degree student.
A student disqualified from a particular college who may have secured subsequent permission to register in another college is automatically on scholastic probation in the new college. A student may be granted college disqualification only once in his or her academic career. Any later disqualification will be considered a university disqualification.
A student who receives university disqualification is restricted from registering at The University of Arizona and may return to the University only on the basis of evidence that underlying conditions have materially improved and that he or she is now capable of academic success. Students seeking readmission who left the University on academic probation or under disqualification must receive approval from the dean of the college they wish to enter prior to readmission.
