Graduate Student Academic Probation and Suspension

A graduate student enrolled at the university shall be placed on academic probation at the end of a semester or summer session when his or her graduate cumulative UW grade point average in 4000-level or higher courses is below 3.0. Students who fail to bring their graduate GPA to 3.0 and remove themselves from probation after one semester or summer session will be suspended from the university. A suspended student may petition their academic program for reinstatement to the same degree program. A reinstated student will be on probation and may be subject to other performance criteria as specified by the dean of the affected department.

The above GPA requirement is considered to be a minimum requirement. Departments may recommend suspension of students from their degree program based on other performance criteria.

Regulations governing academic probation, suspension, and reinstatement do not apply to students enrolled in the College of Law.
