Suspension & Reinstatement

A student who, during a probationary fall or spring term/semester, fails to raise the CGPA to the minimum 2.0 standard, or who fails to make at least a 2.25 GPA for the term/semester, is automatically suspended from UNT Dallas for one or more long terms/semesters. 

A student who is suspended from the University is prohibited from re-enrolling for the following long term(s)/semester(s) as outlined below:

  • First suspension: One long term/semester
  • Second suspension: Two long terms/semesters
  • Third suspension: Indefinite

A student who has been suspended for an indefinite period may request, at the end of two calendar years from the time of the suspension, a review of the case by the appropriate academic dean.

Each student is responsible for knowing the minimum CGPA requirements and the standards for academic standing. Any ineligible student who enrolls during a long term/semester will be withdrawn by the Registrar, regardless of whether the student has registered or pre-registered and paid fees. The student should be aware that coursework taken at another institution while the student is suspended from UNT Dallas may not apply to a degree.

A student who has been suspended from UNT Dallas re-enters on academic probation. A student under academic suspension may attend the UNT Dallas summer enrollment periods. If, at the end of the summer enrollment period, a student raises the CGPA to the 2.0 minimum standard, the student will be reinstated in good academic standing.

SPARE - Student Plan for Academic REcovery

The student Plan for Academic REcovery (SPARE) program is designed and required for all students who find themselves in any academic status other than good academic standing. 

For students whose academic standing is Probation, Returning from Suspension, participation includes:

  • Complete Academic Contract
  • Meet with SPARE advisor

Appealing Academic Suspension

Students whose academic suspension was a result of an extenuating circumstance may be eligible to appeal to be reinstated.  Extenuating circumstances rarely occur and are generally unforeseeable and unpreventable events that have had a serious impact on the student's academic performance.  Students with extenuating circumstances will be accepted for review by the Provost's Appeal Committee.  Students must write a personal statement describing the extenuating circumstances which contributed to their suspension.  In addition, students must provide a plan for how the extraordinary event(s) has/have been resolved and provide proof to the Appeals Committee that further difficulties will not occur if the student is allowed to continue coursework in the next semester.  If you plan to appeal, gather any documentation that you believe will help your case and include only essential materials, please.

Please be aware of specified deadlines; late submissions will NOT be considered.  Decisions by the appeal committee are final.
