This document explains probationary status for admitted business students.
Students admitted to the Wisconsin School of Business must maintain all of the following GPA minimums:
- 2.00 cumulative GPA on all UW-Madison coursework
- 2.00 semester GPA for each semester
- 2.00 GPA on business/economics coursework
- 2.00 GPA on all coursework taken since admission to the School of Business
Failure to meet any of these standards will result in probationary status.
A student will be cleared of probationary status at the end of the semester or summer session when all of the above conditions are met and the student’s record contains no grade of incomplete.
Students continuing on probation for a second, consecutive semester will be placed on strict probation. Students who are not removed from strict probation after one semester will be dropped from enrollment in the School of Business (and UW-Madison) for one semester to one year. Students whose GPA places them in dropped status may reapply on probationary status if they can demonstrate the ability and desire to devote sufficient energy to scholastic work. To reapply, students must complete a reentry application through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
GPA deficiencies causing probationary status cannot be removed through course work at another university or through correspondence study.
