Academic Standing


Freshmen and sophomores on warning or probation are required to meet with us each semester until they are back in good academic standing.

As academic coaches, we understand there are many reasons why a GPA may be lower than anticipated, such as time management challenges, work obligations, family concerns, course overload, and so on. Working together, we can address any obstacles and help you achieve your goals.

At the beginning of each semester, academic coaches will contact freshmen and sophomores who are on warning or probation through their UAHuntsville email.

Academic Standing

In order to be in good academic standing, students must maintain a grade point average above the Academic Action Threshold (AAT), which varies according to classification. For students with 1-31 credit hours, the AAT is 1.9; for students with 32 or more credit hours, the AAT is 2.0. A student whose semester GPA at UAHuntsville falls below the applicable AAT will be placed on academic warning, probation, or dismissal.

Academic Warning

Students are subject to academic warning if they are in good standing and earn less than the applicable AAT for the semester; or if they earn the applicable AAT or greater for the semester but the UAHuntsville cumulative is less than the applicable AAT.

Probation

Students are subject to academic probation if they are on academic warning and the current semester GPA is less than the applicable AAT and the UAHuntsville cumulative is less than the applicable AAT.

Dismissal

Students are subject to academic dismissal if they are on academic probation and the current semester GPA is less than the applicable AAT and the UAHuntsville cumulative is less than the applicable AAT.

A regularly admitted student dismissed for the first time is automatically eligible to re-enter after being out of school one term. A student admitted in any special category and dismissed for the first time must petition the Admissions Committee for permission to re-enter after an absence of at least one term. A student dismissed for the second time is disqualified for readmission until a period of one year, such student may petition for re-admission. Individual colleges may have additional requirements specific to their programs. Refer to college sections. Readmission forms can be found at Charger Central.
