4.9 Academic Performance
Grades obtained in University 1 become a part of the student's permanent record and will appear on the student’s official transcript. See Section 3 of the General Academic Regulations and Requirements chapter of this Calendar for a description of how Grade Point Averages (GPAs) are calculated. Grades earned while in University 1 will determine admission to most target faculties or schools.
University 1 students who have completed 12 credit hours or more will have their academic performance assessed informally as part of an Early Warning Program. Students with a cumulative GPA of less than 2.00 qualify for the Early Warning Program which is designed to assist students at the earliest sign of academic difficulty by providing academic advising, support services, and strategic referrals with the goal of returning the student to good standing. Formal academic assessments are performed following each term for all University 1 students who have completed 24 credit hours or more. As a result of this assessment students will be determined to be in good standing, on probation, or on academic suspension.
University 1 students who have completed 24 credit hours or more must achieve a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or greater at each point of assessment in order to be in good standing in University 1. Students in good standing may be eligible to enter their target faculty and are encouraged to contact their target faculty or a University 1 Academic Advisor for admission information.
Students who do not achieve a cumulative GPA of 2.00 on a minimum of 24 credit hours will be placed on probation. The notation "On Probation" will be recorded on the student's transcript. Once on probation, a student will be allowed to register for another term. At each point of assessment (at the end of each term), students on probation must achieve a term GPA of 2.00 to be able to continue registering on probation. To clear probationary status the student’s cumulative GPA must be 2.00 or higher. Once a student’s cumulative GPA reaches 2.00 or higher they will have returned to good standing and will be able to register without restrictions.
While on probation, support services and referrals may be suggested in order to improve academic performance. Some restrictions on course load may apply. If the student does not achieve a term GPA of 2.00 in each term the student registers while on probation, he/she will be placed on academic suspension for one calendar year (see below).
A student will be placed on academic suspension after failing to achieve a minimum term GPA of 2.00 while on probation. Students registered in spanned courses will be assessed at the end of the term in which the spanned course is completed. A student placed on academic suspension in University 1 is normally not permitted to register in any other faculty or school at the University of Manitoba or to attend any other post-secondary institution for a period of one calendar year. Students must reapply to University 1 once the term of the suspension has been served.
