Probation and Suspension

Students enrolled in University College are placed on probation at the end of any semester in which the cumulative grade point average on the University of New Mexico work falls below 2.00.

Students on probation are liable for suspension at the end of any semester in which the cumulative grade point average does not rise to 2.00 or better.

Students placed on probation may be continued on probation, if they substantially raise the cumulative grade point average and are making reasonable progress in meeting degree requirements. “Substantially raise the cumulative grade point avera” is defined as earning a semester grade point average of at least 2.5. “Reasonable progress” is defined as at least one-half of the student’s course load being courses (exclusive of Introductory Studies courses) which apply towards the student’s major, minor or group requirements. If these conditions are not met, the student is suspended from the University of New Mexico.

The first suspension is for one semester. The second suspension is for one year. The third suspension is for five years.

At the end of the suspension period, a student must apply for readmission to University College with a written petition addressed to the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies. All petitions for readmission or revocation of suspension must be received by the University College Advisement Center no later than one week prior to the start of the semester in which the student wishes to return.
