Academic Standing & Probation

What is Academic Probation at UCF?

A student is placed on academic probation when their UCF cumulative GPA drops below a 2.0. A student must receive at least a 2.0 term GPA the each semester after being placed on probation to remain at the University. Students on academic probation have mandatory programming and requirements to retain their UCF student status. Find out more about academic probation.

What is the 'Online Academic Planning Workshop'?

Students within the College of Sciences that are currently on Academic Probation are required to receive advising and take a short quiz each semester during their probationary period. If the “Online Academic Planning Workshop” has appeared in your webcourses, that means that you are on probation and must complete the requirements of that course until your probation status is lifted. Click here to find out more about academic probation.

I have the College of Sciences hold but the Academic Planning Workshop course is not appearing.

Please email the details of your problem to COSAS@ucf.edu and copy Summer.Bernini@ucf.edu through your UCF email only. Include your name, UCF ID, and all relevant information, so we can make the appropriate updates.

I completed the Academic Planning Workshop course but still have the College of Sciences Hold.

Please allow at least 5 business days for the COSAS team to review your documents and quiz results. After that time, please email COSAS@ucf.edu through your UCF email only. Include your name, UCF ID, and all relevant information, so we can make the appropriate updates.

I have changed my major; I'm no longer in the College of Sciences, but still have a College of Sciences hold.

If you have a COS hold and switched to a non-COS major, email your new College advising office for assistance in having your COS hold lifted. Your new college may also require regular advising appointments while on probationary status.

I’ve been Disqualified (lost student standing due to low academic performance), what can I do now?

If you have been disqualified, your first step should be to print and follow the Academic Success Checklist. This checklist lists best practices, suggestions, and ideas for self assessment and identifying what priorities are most important in a student’s studies. The most important thing disqualified students should keep in mind is that you still have options, and that there are many paths to completion of undergraduate studies. You should also review our Readmission website for additional instructions on what is required to return to UCF.
