Students must maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or better to remain in good academic standing and to graduate from the UO. However, many academic departments have a higher minimum GPA requirement. If you receive notification of academic warning, probation, or disqualification, immediately review the situation with your advisor.
If you have a cumulative UO GPA of 2.00 or better and your last term’s GPA was a 2.00 or better, you are in good academic standing. Some academic departments, however, have a higher minimum GPA requirement.
If your term GPA is below 2.00 but your cumulative UO GPA is 2.00 or higher, you will be given an academic warning. This status is not recorded on your academic transcript.
Academic probation is earned and the notation "academic probation" is recorded on the student's academic transcript whenever the following conditions exist:
- When the UO cumulative GPA is lower than 2.00. Students who have earned 44 or fewer credits are allowed two terms of probation before they are subject to disqualification. Students with more than 44 credits are only allowed one term of probation before they are subject to disqualification. Students on academic probation whose UO cumulative GPA is lower than 2.00 and whose UO term GPA is 2.00 or higher remain on academic probation.
- When the student's three most recent UO term GPAs are lower than 2.00, even if the UO cumulative GPA is above a 2.00.
Students on academic probation are limited to a study load of no more than 15 credits. Incoming students may be admitted on academic probation and are notified when such action has been taken; these students may be subject to disqualification after a single term of probation.
Academic disqualification is earned and the notation "disqualification" is recorded on the student's academic transcript whenever the following conditions exist:
- Students on academic probation for having a UO cumulative GPA lower than 2.00 who earn a UO term GPA lower than 2.00 in their next term.
- Students on academic probation for having their three most recent terms of UO term GPAs lower than 2.00 and who earn less than a 2.00 term GPA for the fourth consecutive term.
Students may apply for reinstatement after disqualification by petition through the Scholastic Review Committee. Disqualified students may enroll for summer classes without being reinstated, although they are not eligible for financial aid.
