Academic Standing

**Note:  While this informational site is supported by University College, 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.  Student 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.

Academic 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.

How to Determine Your Grade Point Average (GPA)

Counseling and Psychological Services Seminars:  Build skills and learn new strategies for academic success by enrolling in a free one-hour seminar from Counseling and Psychological Services.  Spaces for each seminar are limited so students should plan ahead when selecting a date.

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Information:  Students should be advised that an SAP Appeal is a separate appeals process from an appeal seeking to waive academic dismissals from your academic department.  One appeal does not necessarily impact the results of the other appeal (i.e. receiving a waiver of your academic dismissal does not mean that you will receive your SAP appeal, and likewise, receiving a positive result in your SAP appeal will not ensure a waiver of dismissal from your academic department).  Be sure to follow through with all requirements for both appeals.
