As a student, your academic progress is monitored each semester you're enrolled at the university. In order to earn an undergraduate degree from UW-Stout, students must complete their degree requirements with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 - 2.75, depending on the degree program. It is not in the best interest of the student, nor the university, to let them continue their studies indefinitely if they are not achieving at the minimal level.
Contacting the Correct Dean
Academic Deans are affiliated with a specific college or school and assist students with issues or concerns related to their academic experience, grades, instructors, etc. If you seek help in any of these issues, please contact the Academic Dean of your college.
Academic probation is a temporary status due to low academic grades. This policy is in place to warn students that they are not meeting minimal academic standards and that improvement is necessary for continued enrollment in the university. A student is placed on probation if their cumulative GPA is lower than 2.0, conditionally admitted as a transfer or new freshman, or re-admitted after leaving UW-Stout while on probation or when dismissed for academic reasons.
