Academic warning/probation

Students are placed on academic probation at the end of any quarter—except for the first quarter at the University, when an academic warning is issued instead—in which their cumulative GPA is below 2.0. 

Students should schedule an appointment to see an academic adviser as soon as possible to discuss their academic standing. International students should also contact their ISS adviser to understand how their academic standing could affect their visa status. 

Students must complete the Academic Self-Assessment BEFORE their scheduled advising appointment.

Low Scholarship

You are on low scholarship when your cumulative GPA falls below 2.00. You are also either on academic warning or academic probation.

Academic Warning

The first quarter at a new school - whether your previous school was a high school or another college or university - can be a significant change that can lead to poor academic performance. Very often we see students who do poorly in their first quarter, and then turn things completely around after that. Perhaps they just needed some time to figure out how everything works here. Or maybe they found the problem and addressed it. We recommend you address the issue right away, and we hope to be a great resource for you. 

Our office makes an extra effort to reach out to pre-major students on academic warning. A registration hold is put on so that you can come in and meet with your adviser. 

Academic Probation

When you are on academic probation, you are close to losing your place as a student at the UW. Every quarter you are on probation you have to earn a 2.5 in the quarter or earn high enough quarterly grades to raise your cumulative gpa to 2.0. If you don't, you'll be dropped from the UW for low scholarship.

If you have been dropped from the UW for low scholarship, view the Reinstatement page to learn more about possible next steps.
