Satisfactory Academic Progress Requirements
UTB/TSC monitors academic progress to identify students who are experiencing difficulty with their courses. Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) is based upon two components: GPA and course completion. GPA and completion rate will be calculated on at the end of each fall and spring semester.
To meet SAP requirements:
- Maintain a cumulative 2.0 GPA.
- Maintain a 70% cumulative completion rate.
If you meet the (SAP) requirements:
- You will be considered a student in good standing.
- You may enroll in more than 12 hours per semester.
If you fail to meet either the GPA or completion requirement:
- You will be placed on probation.
- You will remain on probation until SAP requirements are met.
- You will only be allowed to enroll in 12 hours per semester.
- You should contact your advisor and/or your faculty mentor. If you do not have an advisor, you should contact the Academic Advising Center.
- You will be required to sign an Academic Success Contract with an academic advisor outlining your responsibilities. You will be encouraged to meet with your professors and/or directed to Learning Enrichment at the student success center for tutoring.
- You will not be eligible to registrar unless you complete the Academic Success Contract.
Students who earn at least a 2.0 GPA and 70 percent completion for the course work that semester can continue on probation or return to good standing if their cumulative GPA is 2.0 and their cumulative completion rate is 70 percent. Students who earn below a 2.0 GPA and 70 percent completion that semester are suspended and must wait until the end of the next long semester to return.
A student returning from suspension:
- You will be placed on conditional probation.
- You may enroll in a maximum of 7 credit hours.
- You must meet with an advisor.
- You must fulfill the terms of your Academic Success Contract designed to help you succeed.
