Probation & Suspension

What does "on probation" mean?

Effective the 2016-17 Fall-Winter session and onward, the following regulations apply to students who have attempted at least 0.5 credits at the university.

Students who have a Cumulative GPA (CGPA) of less than 1.50 at the end of an academic session will be placed on academic probation. Students returning from suspension will have a status of on probation.

Students who, at the end of a session during which they were placed on probation, have a Cumulative GPA of 1.50 or more shall continue their studies in good standing.

Students who, at the end of a session during which they were placed on probation, have a Cumulative GPA of less than 1.50 but a summer sessional or annual (Fall-Winter Session) GPA of 1.70 or more shall continue on probation.

Students who, at the end of a session during which they are on probation, have a cumulative GPA of less than 1.50, and a sessional (Summer) or annual (Fall-Winter) GPA of less than 1.70, shall be suspended for one calendar year unless they have been suspended previously, in which case they shall be suspended for three calendar years.


I’m on probation — what do I do?

If you find yourself on probation at the end of an academic session, visit an academic advisor in the Office of the Registrar before registering for courses in the next session, to be sure you do not end up being suspended.
