Academic Probation and Ineligibility
Undergraduate degree-seeking students' academic status is assessed at the end of every term, whether the student is full-time or part-time for that term. A summer session is considered the same as a semester for the purpose of the following regulations:
- In general, students will be placed on academic probation whenever their official UM grade-point average falls below 2.0 (C average). Some academic units may have a higher grade-point average requirement. First time college freshman admitted to UMKC on the basis of high school records, who have grade-point averages between 1.50 and 1.99 at the end of the first semester of either full- or part-time study will be placed on academic warning. Students on academic warning must achieve an overall 2.0 average by the end of their second semester or be placed on regular probation. After that, they would be subject to the regular probation requirements.
- Students placed on academic probation (UM CUM GPA below 2.0) who have earned 60 or fewer college credits will be required to enroll in University College 100 – Academic Development (UNIV 100) in their next term of enrollment (fall and spring).
- Students on academic probation will be restored to good standing whenever the UM grade-point average reaches 2.0 or the GPA level established by their academic units.
- Students on academic probation must maintain the grade-point average required by their academic units during each subsequent semester or summer session while they are on probation. Otherwise they are ineligible to re-enroll without the approval of the academic units.
- Students on academic probation must remove themselves from probation within three successive semesters (including the semester in which they originally were placed on probation). Otherwise they are ineligible to re-enroll without the approval of the academic units.
- Students are responsible for knowing their academic status by referring to Pathway and their permanent transcript.
