Academic Standing

Your academic standing is determined by the cumulative grade point average. In order to graduate, you must earn a minimum of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale at the University of Northern Colorado.

  • You are placed on academic probation up to the next 24 credit hours at UNC if your cumulative grade point average (GPA) falls below a 2.0. When your cumulative GPA is raised to 2.0 or higher within the 24 probation credit hour window, you will return to good academic standing.
  • Grades that count toward the 24 probation credit hours include all letter grades of A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, D- and F as well as all incompletes that have been finished. Grades not counted towards the 24 probation credit hours are I, NC, NR, NG, S, U, W, UW and CR.
  • If you are on academic probation and do not raise your cumulative grade point average to 2.0 or higher after completing 24 probation credit hours at UNC, you will be suspended.
  • While on probation, if your cumulative GPA falls below a 1.00, you will be automatically suspended.
  • If you are suspended from UNC, you may not apply for readmission until the passage of at least one term, Fall or Spring, unless extenuating circumstances exist and are documented.
  • If you are suspended, you must successfully complete 12 semester hours of a 2.0 cumulative grade point average at another accredited institution, or present evidence of potential future academic success in order to be readmitted.
  • Applications and deadlines for readmission are available through the Office of Academic Support and Advising.
  • All applications are reviewed by the University Academic Review Committee. The University Academic Review Committee’s decisions are final.
  • A second academic suspension is considered a permanent suspension from future enrollment at UNC.
