If you are on academic probation (GPA <2.0) for the first time after fall grades have posted, you will not be disqualified from the University. The College of Science will send you an email with instructions for attending the Making the Grade workshop for Academic Recovery. Watch UA email for this notification.  

  • If you wish to alter your spring class schedule in the meantime (to repeat a course, or reduce your work load, etc.), please go ahead and do this via UAccess.
  • Plan to discuss these modifications with your advisor when s/he returns, if you have any questions about your plans.
  • Please know, there will still be enough time before the spring term begins to make additional schedule changes if needed and to discuss them with your academic advisor.

If you were on academic probation going into the fall term, and are concerned about disqualification or university dismissal:

  • Email Robin Rarick rrarick@email.arizona.edu and copy your academic advisor on the email. Briefly convey the nature of your challenges, and indicate your plans/ideas for getting back on track during the spring semester. Any communication from you will be taken into consideration before disqualification decisions are finalized during the first week of January.
  • If you would like to speak to your advisor about it in person, please schedule an appointment with them now through their online appointment if available. Otherwise, please email him/her to get in the queue for an appointment when s/he returns.  For students whose primary/only major is math or SDS, appointments may be requested through the appointment scheduler at http://mathcenter.math.arizona.edu 
  • In all cases, students will hear from the College of Science Advising Office (via UA email) and/or your academic advisor shortly after the university resumes normal activities in January with further information about probation and academic recovery planning.
