Academic Standing

It is important that you review your academic history carefully at the end of each term to help you assess how you are progressing, and where you may need to revise your course options. If you have attempted at least 0.5 credit, the university will assess your academic standing to be one of the following four statuses: In Good Standing; On Probation; On Suspension; Refused Further Registration.

In Good Standing

  • You have achieve a cumulative GPA of at least 1.50

On Academic Probation

  • You have a cumulative GPA of less than 1.50, or
  • You are returning from a suspension, or
  • You have been admitted on academic probation

At the end the session, students who are on probation will have their academic progress reassessed as follows:

  • you will be placed in good standing if you achieve a cumulative GPA of 1.50 or more
  • you will continue on probation if you have a cumulative GPA of less than 1.50, but a sessional (Summer) or annual (Fall/Winter) GPA of 1.70 or more
  • on academic suspension for one year, or three years (see below for more information)

Academic Suspension

  • Students who are on academic probation and have a cumulative GPA of less than 1.50, and a sessional (Summer) or annual (Fall/Winter) GPA of less than 1.70, will be suspended for one calendar year
  • Students who are returning from a one year suspension will return on academic probation. If they do not meet the satisfactory GPA requirements above, they will be suspended for three calendar years.

Refused further registration

  • After serving a three-year suspension, and having an unsuccessful academic term, students are refused further registration to the University of Toronto.

Students whose academic performance has resulted in probation, suspension or refusal of further registration will be notified by email. If students who are suspended or refused further registration have already enrolled in the next session before their status was known, the Office of the Registrar will cancel the students' registration in that session and refund their tuition fees.
