Probationary Status

You will be placed on academic probation if you do not satisfy the University Requirements for Eligible to Continue in the Continuation of Study regulations. The Office of Registrarial Services will send an email to your @uoguelph.ca email account if your academic status changes to or is Probationary. It is important to read all the information in this email as it outlines the conditions of your status. It is also recommended that you speak with your Program Counsellor about your specific circumstances.

Probationary Status

Academic probation is based on three pieces of information: cumulative average, semester average, and the number of credits you have attempted. The Diploma Program Calendar outlines the criteria for Schedule 3. The tables in the Calendar outline the semester and cumulative average requirements for Eligible to Continue; Probation; and Required to Withdraw. Cumulative average includes all grades of all course credits regardless of whether you have re-taken a course. (Both grades will be used in the cumulative average calculation.) If you are having difficulty understanding how to read the tables, speak with your Program Counsellor.

If you do not satisfy the program requirements for Continuation of Study, you will be allowed to continue in your program of study if granted probationary status.
