Academic Probation

Students will remain on Academic Probation if the term GPA is 2.00 or higher but the overall combined GPA remains below 2.00. Students who are placed on Academic Probation more than one time must complete a Conditional Enrollment Agreement with the Center for Academic Retention and Enrichment Services (CARES) and meet once every two weeks during the semester with a CARES counselor. Students who are on academic probation can go to academic suspension at the end of the semester, talk to your CARES counselor for assistance with this and other questions. 


Students on Academic Probation will be required to have an overall combined GPA of at least 2.00 OR a term GPA of at least 2.00 in order to continue enrollment at the University of Memphis.

NOTE: Even if the student returns to Academic Good Standing after an Academic Warning the student is placed on Academic Probation, if, in any subsequent term, their combined GPA falls below a 2.00 OR the term GPA is below 2.00.
