Academic Progress & Probation

Satisfactory Academic Progress

Cambridge College undergraduate students must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 to be considered as making satisfactory academic progress. 

Cambridge College graduate students must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 to be considered as making satisfactory academic progress. 

Academic Probation

Academic Probation is an official warning issued by the dean’s office when a student falls below satisfactory academic progress (2.0 GPA at the undergraduate level, 3.0 at the graduate level).  A student who has been placed on academic probation will be closely monitored over subsequent terms of enrollment. A student's continued lack of satisfactory academic progress may result in suspension or dismissal from their academic program. 

Procedures: (specific procedures may be subject to periodic change)

If the Dean of the relevant school determines that a student will be placed on academic probation, a Notice of Academic Probation will be issued by the Dean’s office. The student must adhere to the following protocol upon notification:

  • The student must meet their academic advisor within two weeks of receiving the notice of academic probation to discuss the notice of academic probation and its implications, and to develop a plan for academic success.
  • International students must also meet with the Office of International Student Services or designee immediately upon receiving the notification of academic probation to discuss potential visa ramifications.

A copy of the notification of academic probation is given to the Registrar’s office for inclusion in the student’s file. A student placed on probation for lack of satisfactory academic progress will remain on probation until their GPA reaches 2.0 (undergraduate) or 3.0 (graduate).

A student may appeal the probation or suspension decision, in writing, to the Provost or designee. The appeal should be made within five business days after receiving the probation/suspension notice and should include a clear explanation and documentation to support the appeal. The Provost or designee will make a decision within five business days of the receipt of the appeal. The decision by the Provost or designee is final.
