The following requirements and procedures for maintaining academic good standing will remain effective for undergraduates admitted to UNCG prior to Fall 1996. To continue in academic good standing at UNCG, undergraduates who have completed all of their work at UNCG must meet the cumulative grade point average presented in the table below. Transfer students must add the semester hours accepted in transfer to the hours attempted at UNCG to determine the cumulative grade point average necessary.
In addition, to meet graduation requirements, a student must present a minimum of 122 semester hours with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.00. No more than 168 hours may be attempted toward an undergraduate degree.
Several departments or schools at UNCG require a cumulative grade point average higher than 2.00 for admission to and continuance in a major program. Please refer to specific programs in the Undergraduate Bulletin for more information.
Academic Probation and Academic Suspension
A student whose cumulative grade point average is below that required is placed on academic probation. Failure to restore the required grade point average in one semester will result in academic suspension.
Students are expected to be aware at all times of their academic status and to be responsible for knowing whether or not they are on academic probation.
Removal of Academic Suspension
After at least one semester of academic suspension for failure to meet the minimum grade point average, a student may apply for reactivation. (Summer School is not considered a semester for removal of academic suspension.)
If reactivated, the student will be placed on academic probation with special terms of probation. Failure to meet the special terms will again result in academic suspension.
UNCG reserves the right to deny enrollment to any student, even though the student has met the minimum grade point average required, if it is apparent from the student's academic record of required courses that the student will not be able to meet the graduation requirements.
The Director of Academic Advising and Support Services and the Academic Appeals Committee, appointed from the faculty, consider special and meritorious requests for waivers of academic regulations as stated in the Undergraduate Bulletin. The student should consult the Office of Academic Advising and Support Services for information concerning the appeal process.
