A student is on academic probation and not in academic good standing if his/her cumulative UB GPA is 2.000 or greater but his/her most recent two consecutive semester GPAs (fall/spring) are less than 2.000.
A student is on academic probation and not in academic good standing if his/her cumulative UB GPA is less than 2.000 and quality point deficit is less than 20 after two or more semesters (fall/spring) of study at UB.
Students on academic probation are not eligible to participate in university activities. In addition, students on academic probation may be subject to an advisement service indicator — a mandatory discussion with an academic advisor to help build an effective academic strategy before the student may complete any further registration activity.
Academic probation will not be noted on a student’s official transcript, but will be part of the student’s record.
A student enrolled at UB for two or more semesters who has a cumulative UB GPA less than 2.000 and a quality point deficit of 20 or greater points will be dismissed from the university regardless of his/her most recent semester GPA.
Each dismissed student will receive official notification via U.S. mail and his/her UB email account, and all future fall or spring semester registrations will be removed and/or blocked. Dismissed students may register in or will keep their enrollments in the summer or winter session immediately following dismissal (e.g., students dismissed in June 2021 may enroll in summer 2021 courses).
A dismissed student may register as a non-degree student for enrollment in winter or summer sessions after review and approval by the Scholastic Standards Committee. Students can apply to be readmitted one academic year after their dismissal (e.g., a student dismissed after spring 2020 may apply for re-admittance for fall 2022).
A dismissed student may appeal the dismissal in writing to the Dean of Undergraduate Education during a period of time specified in the dismissal letter. Consultation with an academic advisor is required as part of the dismissal appeal process. If the appeal is granted, notice of that will include the terms and conditions of continued study. Students who successfully appeal their academic dismissal will be assigned an academic standing of dismissal deferred.
Academic dismissal and dismissal deferred will be noted on the student’s official transcript and will be part of the student’s record.
