Academic Probation and Academic Dismissal for Undergraduate Students

The first time the academic record of an undergraduate or non-degree seeking student falls below a cumulative 2.00 grade point average (GPA), counting only USF grades, he/she will be placed on Academic Probation (AP). If the cumulative GPA is not raised to 2.00 or higher at the end of the next term of enrollment, the student will be placed on Final Academic Probation (FP). A student on Final Academic Probation who fails to raise his/her cumulative USF GPA to 2.00 or higher at the end of the next term of enrollment will be Academically Dismissed (AD) from the university.

A student admitted to the university on probationary status will be placed on Academic Probation (AP) his/her first term with the above rules related to Final Academic Probation and Academic Dismissal applying. Academic advising prior to registration is mandatory until the student is removed from probationary status.

Any student who withdraws after the fifth day of classes while on Academic Probation will be placed on Final Academic Probation. Any student who withdraws after the fifth day of classes while on Final Academic Probation or who has been placed on Conditional Readmission by the Academic Regulations Committee will be Academically Dismissed.

The determination and notification of probationary status or academic dismissal will be made by the Registrarís Office on the studentís semester grade report and academic record.

A student who attends another college or university during academic dismissal will be classified as a transfer student and readmission will be based on the total record accumulated from all colleges and universities attended.

If a student who has accumulated fewer than 60 semester hours is academically dismissed from USF or falls below a 2.0 GPA and subsequently achieves an A.A. degree or an articulated A.S. degree from a Florida public community/junior college (or other SUS institution), that student, when returning to the University, will return with the USF GPA earned prior to dismissal unless he/she exercises the option of Academic Renewal I as provided in this catalog.

If a student who has accumulated 60 or more semester hours is academically dismissed from USF or falls below a 2.0 GPA and subsequently receives an A.A. or an articulated A.S. from a Florida public community/junior college (or other SUS institution), that student, when returning to the University, will begin with the USF GPA earned prior to dismissal unless he/she exercises the option of Academic Renewal II as provided in this catalog:

If a student is academically dismissed or falls below a 2.0 GPA from USF and subsequently receives a BA/BS from another four-year institution, that student, when accepted to the University with the post-baccalaureate status, will have his/her academic record cleared.

The posting of the AA shall not remove the previous GPA generated at USF for a student who has earned credit at USF and is academically eligible to return to the university and who subsequently receives an A.A. from a community college.
