Probation and Suspension

Requirements for Continued Enrollment

Good Academic Standing
An undergraduate student must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or above at UNC Charlotte to remain in good academic standing.  Academic Standing of each student is calculated at the end of the Fall and Spring semesters.

Semester Warning
An undergraduate student whose cumulative GPA is at or above 2.0 at the end of a Fall or Spring semester but whose GPA for that semester is below 2.0 is placed on semester warning.  This warning status is an indication of potential academic problems and is communicated to the student and the student’s advisor and major department(s).

Academic Probation
An undergraduate student whose cumulative GPA is below 2.0 at the end of the Fall or Spring semester is placed on academic probation, and this is noted on the student's permanent academic record.

Academic Suspension
An undergraduate student who remains on academic probation for two consecutive semesters (excluding summer sessions) is suspended from the University.  However, a student who has a current Fall or Spring semester GPA of 2.3 or higher will not be suspended.

Exception for Summer Enrollment
Students who are on academic suspension are permitted to enroll in summer session classes. They are not eligible to continue enrollment in the Fall and Spring semesters until they have applied and been approved for reinstatement or readmission.
