Academic Probation & Suspension

The College of Business & Economics is a selective admission college. We work hard to make sure all students achieve their dream of earning a degree from Gatton, therefore our college policy on academic probation is designed to identify and assist those students who are experiencing academic difficulty before the student reaches university probation.

A B&E student is placed on Gatton probation if the student earns a grade-point average (GPA) of less than 2.0 in any given term (semester), even if the student's cumulative UK GPA is 2.0 or higher. Students on Gatton probation are required to meet with their individual advisor. The student can find their advisor's name and schedule an advising appointment in myUK.

A B&E student who earns a GPA of less than 2.0 in any given semester AND has a cumulative UK GPA below 2.0 is placed on Gatton suspension. Suspended students are required to select a new major outside of B&E. Questions regarding Gatton suspension should be directed to the the student's B&E advisor.
