Academic Warning, Probation, and Dismissal


Academic Warning

Academic warning is a provision given to help a first year student obtain the minimum pass grade to progress to the next semester. It may also avert any premature dismissal because of two consecutive probations.

  1. A first year first semester student will be given a warning if his/her semester G.P.A. is 1.75 to 1.99, inclusive.
  2. A first year second semester student who has been put on warning in the first semester will be put on probation if his/her C.G.P.A. is between 1.75 to 1.99, inclusive.

Academic Probation

Academic Probation is a discretionary decision to allow students failing to meet the required academic standards to continue their studies. Since the purpose of probation is to permit the academic rehabilitation of the student, probation can only be granted by considering the circumstances of each student individually.

To benefit from probation there should be reason to believe that the student can raise his/her grade to the required level of achievement.

  1. Academic probation is not a right but a privilege given by the Senate of UUC.
  2. A first year first semester student whose semester GPA falls between and including 1.50 and 1.74 will be put on probation.
  3. A student in the first year second semester and above shall be put on probation if he/she fails to achieve a semester GPA of 1.50.
  4. In anticipation of possible improvement in his/her CGPA in the following semester, a student in the second year and above may be put on probation if his/her CGPA falls between 1.75 and 1.99.
  5. A student cannot be put on probation twice. Instead of a second probation, he/she will be dismissed.

Academic Dismissal

Academic dismissal is a decision to disallow academic pursuit in an institution of higher education.

  1. A first year student who fails to achieve a minimum semester GPA of 1.50 in the first semester/term shall be dismissed.
  2. A first year, second semester student who is on warning but who fails to achieve a minimum CGPA of 1.75 shall be dismissed.
  3. A student in the second year and above who has been on warning or probation shall be dismissed if he/she fails to achieve a minimum CGPA of 2.00 and a minimum semester GPA of 1.50.
  4. A student who fails to achieve a minimum semester GPA of 1.50 for three consecutive semesters shall be dismissed, irrespective of his CGPA.
  5. An advanced standing student will be dismissed if he/she fails to achieve a GPA of 1.75 in the semester in which he/she is enrolled.
  6. A readmitted student who fails to achieve a CGPA of 2.00 at the end of the second semester after readmission will be dismissed.
  7. Violation of other regulations of the University College may also result in dismissal.
