A student in good academic standing whose current semester GPA falls below 2.0 for any fall or spring semester will receive an academic warning notice. Academic warning is not recorded on the student’s official record.
UMBC Academic Probation Policy
A student whose cumulative GPA falls below 2.0 at the end of a fall or spring semester will be placed on academic probation. A student may be enrolled in classes during a probationary semester. Academic probation is recorded on the student’s record.
Students can experience academic difficulty at any point in their university experience, and we recognize that external factors often influence academic performance. As a result, we’re providing the following recommendations for students who need guidance on their next steps:
1. Contact your assigned advisor or advising coordinator
2. Enroll in EDUC 113
3. Seek appropriate resources
UMBC offers several resources to support students in overcoming barriers impacting their academic performance. A list of such resources is located on the Academic Success Center’s website.
For additional support, students with an F-1 visa status are encouraged to contact International Student and Scholar Services for questions on how academic challenges impacts visa status.
The Macklin Center for Academic Success offers support resources for students enrolled at UMBC at the Universities at Shady Grove.
