Academic Warning, Probation, and Suspension Policy

UW-Parkside expects every student to maintain a good academic standing (2.00 GPA or higher). Every student is required to maintain a minimum GPA of 2.0 for all course work taken at UW-Parkside. Every student is also expected to maintain a minimum GPA of 2.00 on all UW-Parkside coursework carried in each term, including summer sessions and winterim. Students who fail to maintain this minimum GPA will face academic probation or suspension. Every student can determine his/her academic status at the end of each term using the criteria below. Students who fail to meet the minimum requirements for good academic standing will be notified of their academic standing and status by the Provost or College Dean. 

 
  • If a student is not on probation and earns a Parkside term GPA lower than 2.00, the student is placed on WARNING. 
  • If a student is already on WARNING and earns a Parkside term GPA lower than 2.00, and has a Parkside cumulative GPA of 2.00 or higher, the student remains on WARNING. 
  • If a student is already on WARNING and earns a Parkside term GPA lower than 2.00, and has a Parkside cumulative GPA lower than 2.00, the student is placed on PROBATION.
  • If a student is already on PROBATION and earns a Parkside term GPA higher than 2.25, but has a Parkside cumulative GPA lower than 2.00, the student remains on PROBATION. 
  • If a student is already on PROBATION and earns a Parkside term GPA lower than 2.25, the student is placed on ACADEMIC SUSPENSION.  The student is suspended for at least one year. 
Any student on PROBATION will automatically be cleared of the probation at the end of any term when his/her: 
  1. Parkside term GPA is 2.25 or higher; AND
  2. Parkside cumulative GPA is 2.00 or higher; AND 
  3. Academic record contains no grades of incomplete (I).
Please note that while a student's degree GPA (cumulative GPA for all Parkside and transfer coursework) is NOT included as part of the determination of probation and suspension status, students must have a degree GPA of 2.00 or higher in order to graduate with an undergraduate degree from Parkside.
