When a student’s Total Institution GPA falls below a 2.00 GPA the student is placed on Academic Probation. Probation is a serious matter and if not corrected in the subsequent semester could lead to academic disqualification.
Students on probation have a “probation hold” placed on their VandalWeb account and will be unable to register or change registration status (i.e., adding/dropping classes, etc.) until the hold has been removed.
To have the hold removed complete the Probation Academic Plan form (PDF) and the Self-Assessment Survey (PDF). These two documents must be completed before making an appointment to meet with your academic advisor. Completed forms should be returned to email@example.com.
NOTE: Freshmen students who went on academic probation after fall semester qualify to attend the Student Options Advising Retreat (SOAR) offered in January. Students benefit from this retreat and is strongly encouraged.
If you are a first semester student and you fail to achieve a 1.0 GPA for the semester, you will be placed on first disqualification. This means that you will be unable to attend the university for one semester. Once the required semester away is complete, you will be eligible to return to the university. You will work closely with your advisor and establish a plan to ensure your academic success during your transition back to school.
To be considered for academic reinstatement complete the Disqualification Academic Plan (PDF) form and the Self-Assessment Survey (PDF). These documents must be completed before making an appointment. Completed forms should be returned to Assistant Dean Erick Larson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Second or Third Disqualification
To petition for academic reinstatement for a second or third academic disqualification, follow the same process as a first disqualification. However, reinstatement for a third academic disqualification must be approved by the University of Idaho’s Academic Petition Committee.
It is difficult to get reinstated immediately following a multiple disqualification situation. The university encourages students in multiple disqualification situations to take time away from school to evaluate their educational objectives.
