Academic Standing and Freshman Distinction
Guide for Students on Dismissal 1Academic Standing Categories
Academic Good Standing
Students who have a 2.0 GPA or above at UT Arlington are considered in good standing and can continue to take courses without penalty. However, it is important to keep in mind that individual departments may have higher GPA thresholds to remain in a particular major, to take advanced course work, or even to graduate with a degree in that major. Refer to the appropriate school or college in the Academic Programs and Degree Offerings section of the Undergraduate Catalog for these GPA requirements, or you may speak with your academic advisor.

**Note: While this informational site is supported by the University Advising Center, students should seek advisement for their academic issues through the advising process in their major department. If a student is a freshman or Undeclared, the University Advising Center in Ransom Hall will provide the advising. The information on this web site should not be used as a replacement for the Undergraduate Catalog or proper academic advisement.
All students should thoroughly read the Academic Probation and Dismissal section of the Academic Regulations in the Undergraduate Catalog. Students should also become familiar with the Table of Standards. Students who fall below the UTA Table of Standards will be placed on probation or warning (as appropriate) and may face dismissal from the University if the GPA is not raised to meet the required standards.
