A cumulative GPA of 2.0 is required to remain on satisfactory academic progress at UH Maui College. Students who do not meet this minimum GPA at the end of any semester will receive a warning of unsatisfactory academic progress. If satisfactory progress is not made in ensuing semesters, students will be placed on academic probation and eventually suspended or dismissed from the College.
All students notified of unsatisfactory academic progress are required to meet with an academic counselor prior to registration so that an academic plan can be created.
Students are placed on academic warning at the end of any semester in which their cumulative GPA falls below 2.0. A warning is not notated on the permanent academic record. Warned students may continue to attend UH Maui College but must raise their cumulative GPA to 2.0 or higher in the semester immediately following. Failure to do so will result in academic probation.
If students on warning fail to raise their cumulative GPA to a 2.0 or higher, they will be placed on academic probation. Notation of probation is made on the student’s permanent academic record. Probationary students may continue to attend UH Maui College under the following terms:
- Students will be allowed to enroll only in courses approved by an academic advisor.
- Students will meet regularly, thereafter, with that advisor to review progress.
- Students must earn a semester GPA of 2.0 or higher in each probationary semester.
- Students will remain on probation until their cumulative GPA is raised to 2.0 or higher.
- Students on probation receiving a term GPA below 2.0 for two consecutive semesters will be suspended.
Students will be suspended for failing to meet the terms of probation. Notation of academic suspension is made on the student’s permanent academic record. Suspended students are eligible to apply to UH Maui College after a wait period of at least two full semesters (not including summer session). Students returning after suspension will be placed on probation during the semester of re-entry. Under extenuating circumstances, a waiver of the wait period may be granted, allowing the student to enroll. The student must apply for a waiver from the Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs prior to the official first day of instruction for the following semester. Suspension can occur only once; failure to meet the terms of probation after returning from suspension will result in dismissal.
Students returning after suspension may be dismissed for failing to meet the terms of probation. A dismissed student may be readmitted only after careful review of their academic record and meeting with the Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs.
Removal from Probation
Students will be removed from probation once the cumulative GPA is raised to 2.0 or higher.
Students may appeal a decision regarding academic probation, suspension, or dismissal by filing a formal petition with the Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs. Appeals must be filed as soon as notification of probation or suspension is received, and prior to the first day of instruction of the following semester.
