Honors College - Change in Probation Policy
Continuation in the Honors College (new policy approved 6/4/15)
UAB Honors College students are required to maintain a 3.0 cumulative UAB GPA to remain in good standing. Each student's academic record is evaluated at the end of fall and spring semesters and any student who falls below the minimum requirement will be placed on immediate probation. A student on probation will be required to meet with an Honors College advisor or the director of their program to discuss the student’s action plan to raise the cumulative UAB GPA to at least 3.0. Students on probation have up to one year to raise their UAB GPA at least 3.0. The probation period ends when a student’s GPA rises to at least 3.0 or after 1 year has elapsed.
Continued failure to meet minimums after the one year probationary period will result in suspension from the Honors College. Suspension includes the loss of all privileges associated with being an honors student, including priority registration and honors graduation designation. In rare circumstances, a student may appeal to the Dean of the Honors College for an extension of the probation period or for reinstatement. Additional requirements may be required by individual honors programs for students to remain in good standing.
