Academic Standing

All students are expected to maintain certain standards of academic achievement while enrolled at the University. The University is concerned about students whose academic achievements indicate that they are not meeting the expectations of their instructors, or who are experiencing other problems that may be interfering with their studies.

  • A 3.0 or better end-of-term cumulative GPA results in continuing Good Standing.
  • A 2.0 to 2.999 end-of-term cumulative GPA results in Academic Probation status.
  • A 1.999 or less end-of-term cumulative GPA results in Academic Suspension status. 

Action on part-time students is withheld until at least nine credits are attempted at UW-Green Bay.

Moving from Probation to Good Standing or Suspension

  • A student on Probation who earns a 3.0 or better end-of-term cumulative GPA returns to Good Standing.
  • A student on Probation carrying a 2.999 or less end-of-term cumulative GPA after attempting a cumulative total of 15 or more credits at UW-Green Bay has academic Suspension status.

Suspension Review Process

  • At the time a student earns academic Suspension, a graduate committee identified by each program reviews the student’s record up to that time and recommends for Continued Enrollment or for academic Suspension status to take effect.  For thesis/dissertation-based programs, the review committee must consist of the student’s graduate committee plus the program chair.  In situations in which a student-specific graduate committee does not exist, then the program must form a committee consisting of the program chair, the student’s advisor, and a minimum of one additional member from the programs executive committee.  All committees must contain a minimum of three faculty.
