Students whose cumulative UT GPA is less than 2.00 are placed on scholastic probation by The University. In CNS, a student on probation must fill out a CNS Grade Contract every long (Fall/Spring) semester his/her GPA is less than 2.00. A student who completes the requirements of the Contract will be allowed to continue in the College. If a student does not meet the requirements, he/she will be dismissed from The University. The exception to this policy is when a student earns 12 hours of failing grades in his/her first semester. This results in an automatic dismissal after the first semester.
