Academic Probation

There are two types of academic probation: university-level probation and college-level probation. Review the UF Probation Policies on their Academic Progress Policies page.

Regarding college-level probation, if you earn less than a 2.0 core, major, area of specialization, or UF GPA, you will be placed on academic probation for a maximum of two semesters. The Heavener School of Business will place a registration hold on your record and require you to meet with an advisor to discuss the terms of your probation contract, as well as strategies for improving academic performance. As a rule, you will be asked to earn specific grades in the following semester to eliminate at least half of your grade point deficits. If you accomplish this, you will be allowed to continue on probation for one more semester. At the end of the second semester of probation, you must either earn the grades you need to remove all deficit points or change your major to a non-business major. Students who do not meet the terms of their probation will be prohibited from continuing in a business major.
