Academic Warning
Academic Warning = Semester GPA < 2.0

general advice
to help you reach...
1. Be aware of important dates and deadlines. Such as:
Last day to drop classes
Last day to get a refund
First day you can register
2. Talk to your advisor to:
Know what classes you need to take
Find out how to make yourself competitive for your career
Let them know if you are struggling. Advisors are experts on campus resources
Find your advisor using: http://www.uvu.edu/advising/find/
3. Talk to Your Teachers
While it can be intimidating, talking to your teachers is the first step to being successful.
Ask for clarification on assignments
Let them know when things are going on in your life that are affecting your ability to succeed
Keep them in the loop
College requires a lot of balancing. You have to balance school, work, a social life, and everything else.
Manage your time, don't let it manage you
Don't overload yourself by trying to work full time and attend school full time
Create a routine so you have specific times to do homework
Don't procrastinate doing homework and studying for tests
That was a lot of information. But please, just be aware that resources are available to help you succeed. You can overcome the obstacles you face.
In order to be eligible for financial aid, federal regulations require students to maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) every semester in three areas:
1. Cumulative Grade Point Average: GPA must be 2.0 or above (C average).

2. Completion Rate: Must complete 75% of credits. Letter grades of W, AU, NC, UW, and E are not considered completed grades.

3. Maximum Time Frame: Students may receive aid for a maximum of 150% of the published length of the educational program. For a bachelor’s degree the average length is 120 credits, so the maximum would be 180 attempted credit hours. For an associate’s degree the average length is 60 credits, so the maximum would be 90 attempted credit hours. Financial aid will not pay for any credits that exceed the maximum credits allowed for the degree program (W, AU, NC, UW, and E’s are considered attempted credit hours and will count toward your maximum of 150%).

Remember – Financial aid will pay for only ONE repeat of a previously passed course (passing is considered a D- or above, failed grades are E, UW, and NC).
5. Find a place conducive to studying.
4. Stress Management
Learn ways to cope with stress. Go to
One of the most helpful things for reducing stress is realizing that there are things you CAN change and things you CANNOT change.
5. Laugh: It relieves stress.
Remember, you can do it!
For more information, visit http://www.uvu.edu/cdc
Worrying about things that you cannot affect (like other people's actions or the weather) will just cause frustration. Focus on the things that YOU have power over.
All of these dates can be found at
under "Student Timetables."
Print it out. You won't be sorry.
4. Find a balance
like the library. We have one of those.
You can even reserve study rooms. http://www.uvu.edu/library/

Students with disabilities can receive accommodations to help them succeed
Here are a couple more important resources to be aware of:
How does your GPA affect financial aid?
What happens after probation?
When your cumulative GPA is below 2.0 for a second consecutive semester, you are placed on Continued Probation.

For Continued Probation you might have to do another workshop. You must meet with the Academic Standards Counselor, as well as your major advisor, to create a success plan.
What happens after Continued Probation?
You can remain on Continued Probation as long as you receive a 2.0 or higher for your SEMESTER GPA.

HOWEVER, if your semester GPA goes below a 2.0 while you are on Continued Probation, you will be suspended.

Suspension requires that you be dropped from all your courses and sit out a semester. After that semester you can submit a petition to a committee asking to return to UVU.

Before continuing, please select
Warning and Probation
Continued Probation
6. Retake a Class
Did you know that retaking a class replaces your original grade?
It must be the exact same course number
Both courses must be taken at UVU (you can't replace your English 1010 grade with with a SLCC English 1010 grade)
Your original grade remains on your transcript but is NOT included in your GPA
Right now you are on warning.
However, if your CUMULATIVE (overall) GPA goes below a 2.0, you will be placed on Academic Probation.

For Academic Probation, you would have to do a more extensive workshop and then meet with your major advisor to create an Academic Success Plan.
Find reasons to laugh daily.
