What Is Probation?

Students are placed on probation when their cumulative GPA falls below 2.0. Students will be notified by the ASC and have their registration placed on hold to ensure that they meet with an advisor. The hold is removed once the student meets with the advisor. Students are encouraged to meet with an advisor each semester at least once for advising and once to discuss progress and intervention strategies.

What Is College Suspension? *

Students who have been on probation for two consecutive semesters will face college suspension and will not be able to take any UNLV courses for one semester. Students who are college-suspended may request reinstatement through the ASC Academic Standards Committee. Students are encouraged to meet with an advisor to review reinstatement procedures.

What Is University Suspension?

If the UNLV GPB (grade point balance) of a student already warned by college probation falls to a –15 or below, the university will suspend the student for a minimum of one calendar year. A suspended student will not be able to take any UNLV courses. Students will be automatically readmitted to UNLV in the semester immediately following their required one-year suspension period. For example, if a student was dismissed at the end of Spring 2015 semester, they are eligible to return to UNLV Summer 2016. The student is not required to apply for readmission if they return in the immediate semester. Students seeking early reinstatement or reinstatement beyond the one-year time period must go to their advising center to file a university suspension reinstatement form. Students are encouraged to meet with an advisor to review reinstatement procedures.
