Students are placed on Scholastic Probation when their cumulative GPA falls below a 2.0. Students receive a letter notifying them of the change to their academic standing immediately following the term in which they are placed on probation.
When CAES students are placed on Scholastic Probation, they are required to meet with our Academic Counselor, Bekah Ingram. In our Academic Counseling program, students have the opportunity to gain some insight into their academic challenges, receive support, and be directed to on-campus as well as off-campus resources that may benefit them.
Students placed on Scholastic Probation should email Bekah within the first 25 days of the start of the next semester to set up an orientation meeting. During this meeting students can talk about their experience at UGA and any difficulties they feel may have contributed to their current academic standing. Our academic counselor will then help guide the student and give them resources that may be of interest. During this time students will also review the terms of probation and will receive a copy of these terms so they may refer back to them throughout the semester.
Any students who have not contacted Bekah within 25 days will have an Academic Counseling hold added to their record. This is a registration hold that prevents students from withdrawing from classes, making changes to an existing schedule, registering for the following semester, or ordering transcripts. PLEASE NOTE: Students who do not follow their probationary terms and fail to contact Bekah in a timely manner will not receive special accommodations. Appointment times are limited, and students will be helped on a first come, first served basis.
