Probation and Dismissal The following provisions apply to all undergraduates. Graduate and professional students with scholarship deficiencies are subject to action at the discretion of their respective deans. Scholastic DeficienciesA student will be placed on probation or subject to disqualification for failure to meet qualitative or quantitative standards of scholarship. Qualitative Standards. The qualitative standards of scholarship require that a student maintain a C average (2.000) or better for all work undertaken in the university and for the work undertaken in any one quarter. A student will be placed on probation for qualitative reasons if, at the end of any quarter, the student's grade point average (GPA) is:
A student will be subject to disqualification for qualitative reasons if, at the end of any quarter,
In the case of probation or subject to disqualification for qualitative reasons, the official transcript will state that the student is not in good academic standing. Once a student has met the qualitative standards of scholarship, or has satisfied all requirements for graduation, the notation will be removed from the transcript. Quantitative Standards. The quantitative standards, referred to as minimum progress requirements, define scholarship in terms of the number of units that you must satisfactorily complete. It is expected that a student will earn the 180unit minimum degree requirement within 12 quarters (four years). This means students are expected to complete, on average, 15 units per quarter. Because occasions arise which prevent students from achieving expected progress towards the degree, the campus has established minimum progress requirements, to which students must adhere. To meet minimum progress, a fulltime regular undergraduate is required to maintain an average of at least 13 units passed over all quarters of enrollment. Minimum progress is calculated at the end of every Spring Quarter for the preceding three quarters (Fall, Winter, Spring) comprising the academic year. Quarters during that period for which a student was officially approved for parttime status are omitted from the minimum progress calculation. The following courses may be counted toward unit minimum progress:
A student will be placed on probation for quantitative reasons if, at the end of any Spring Quarter, the minimum progress calculation for the preceding academic year shows that the student passed an average of less than 13 units but greater than or equal to 12 units per quarter. A student will be subject to disqualification for quantitative reasons if, at the end of any Spring Quarter, the minimum progress calculation for the preceding academic year shows that the student passed an average of less than 12 units per quarter. For every student who is subject to academic disqualification for quantitative reasons at the end of Spring Quarter, a "degree progress average" will be calculated at the close of the next fulltime quarter of enrollment at UC Davis. The degree progress average is defined as the quotient of the number of units passed during all fulltime quarters from the initial quarter of matriculation at UC Davis divided by the number of fulltime quarters completed at UC Davis. A student whose degree progress average is less than 13 units shall be "subject to disqualification for quantitative reasons." A student whose degree progress average is 13 or more units shall not be "subject to disqualification for quantitative reasons." The degree progress average shall be calculated each subsequent fulltime quarter of enrollment as long as the student is "subject to disqualification for quantitative reasons." A student who is "subject to disqualification for quantitative reasons" at the end of two consecutive fulltime quarters of enrollment shall be disqualified from the university. In the case of dismissal for quantitative reasons, the official transcript will state that the student is not in good academic standing." Once a student has met the quantitative standards of scholarship, or has satisfied all requirements for graduation, the notation will be removed from the transcript. DismissalDismissal for either qualitative or quantitative reasons (defined above) is based on the decision of the dean of the college in which the student is enrolled. Such dismissal is from the University of California system and not simply the college or the UC Davis campus. Should a former UC Davis student later wish to be readmitted to the UC Davis campus, the authority to do so rests with the dean of the college from which the student was dismissed. If a student is dismissed from their college, they will automatically receive a full refund of registration fees paid for that term. Students should go to the dean's office of their college or the Biology Academic Success Center if they need academic advising about probation and dismissal.
