Ask Libby

If I take a summer course and my GPA raises, am I still on academic probation?

Yes, technically a student would still be considered to be on scholastic probation since scholastic/academic status is not recalculated until the end of a long semester such as fall or spring. For example, if a student is able to reach a 2.0 overall UT GPA by the end of the summer, he/she would still have to maintain or exceed that GPA through the end of fall. We do not dismiss students at the end of summer, but a student would have to make up a larger GPA deficit in the fall if he/she has a bad summer.
