Academic Warning, Probation & Dismissal
An undergraduate student whose UH Hilo semester GPA is less than 2.0 will be notified and will be encouraged to seek academic advising.
An undergraduate student whose UH Hilo cumulative GPA is less than 2.0 will be placed on academic probation. A graduate student whose UH Hilo cumulative graduate GPA is less than 3.0 will be placed on academic probation.
Continued Academic Probation
Following a semester on academic probation, an undergraduate student will be placed on continued academic probation if the UH Hilo GPA for the semester just completed was 2.0 or higher, but the UH Hilo cumulative GPA remains less than 2.0.
An undergraduate student whose UH Hilo semester GPA and UH Hilo cumulative GPA are both below 2.0 at the end of a semester of academic probation or continued academic probation will be dismissed from the University. He or she may appeal the academic dismissal in writing to the appropriate college dean at least two weeks prior to the first day of the semester or session. Readmission is not automatic and will be granted only where there is evidence the student will perform satisfactorily.
A graduate student whose UH Hilo semester and cumulative GPA is still below a 3.0 at the end of 2 semesters of academic probation will be dismissed from the University. Individual graduate programs may have stricter requirements.
College of Pharmacy students should refer to the College of Pharmacy Handbook for specific information pertaining to academic status and dismissal.
