In undergraduate degree programs, a student's academic progress is evaluated at the end of each term. A Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is calculated. Based on the academic standing a student’s status in the program is established.
A probationary student must meet with their Program Advisor to develop a plan of study to continue with their program. This plan will include the minimum Term Grade Point Average (TGPA) to be achieved and optionally:
This plan is formalized into a Probationary Contract that is agreed to by both the student and the Program Advisor.
The Probationary Contract must be entered into the Student Administrative System (SAS). See the How to Enter a Probationary Contract and the How to Maintain a Probationary Contract job aids for details.
At the end of the term when the grades are posted, the Probationary Contract is automatically evaluated to determine if the terms of the contract have been met. The student’s academic standing is calculated and a decision is then made as to whether the student can continue in their program studies.
