Academic Review Appeal Hearings
Academic Standing Policy
UNG considers a student to be in good academic standing by having a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 after completing 18 or more academic hours in all courses attempted in which a grade of A, B, C, D, F, or WF is submitted. A student who has 18 hours or less, and a cumulative GPA below 2.0 will be placed on academic warning. Academic warning is considered part of UNG’s early alert program and the student remains in good academic standing. A student who has 19 or more GPA hours and does not have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 will be placed on academic probation. A student on academic probation must earn a minimum semester GPA of 2.0 for each subsequent semester, until good academic standing is achieved to remain on continued probation and avoid suspension. If the student fails to maintain a minimum GPA of 2.0 for each subsequent semester while on probation, he/she will be suspended for two consecutive semesters.
Should there be extenuating circumstances that contributed to the student’s poor academic performance, the student may appeal to the Office of the Provost prior to the next Appeals committee meeting. The committee will meet to consider the appeal and make a recommendation to the Provost, who will notify the student of the disposition of the appeal within a week of the committee meeting.
Students receiving financial aid are still required to meet Satisfactory Academic Progress to maintain aid eligibility.
