The Academic Standards Office provides counseling and academic assistance to students, particularly those having difficulty meeting retention standards of the University. All student appeals for reinstatement are submitted to the Academic Standards Office. The Director is available to provide information on academic policies, and registration procedures, to assist students in selecting courses of study consistent with their personal and career ambitions, and to refer students to other campus offices for academic assistance.
There are many helpful resources available for students on the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater website.
*UPDATE FOR SPRING 2020 TERM*
Academic standing (i.e. academic probation, final probation, etc.) cannot be negatively impacted by Spring 2020 grades. Conditions directly associated with probationary levels have been temporarily waived for the Spring 2020 term. Academic standing will be calculated after May 27. If students change the grading basis to Satisfactory/No Credit (S/NC), remember that ‘S’ and ‘NC’ grades have no impact on GPA.
Example 1: Student is currently on final probation and has a 1.16 cumulative GPA after Fall 2019 semester. Student receives a 1.93 cumulative GPA for spring 2020 semester. Student is not dismissed and instead, their final probation standing remains for the spring term. Their standing is not negatively impacted.
Example 2: Student is currently on academic probation and has a 1.89 cumulative GPA after Fall 2019 semester. Student receives a 2.95 term GPA and increases her cumulative GPA to above a 2.00 – to 2.24. Her academic standing is positively impacted so therefore she goes back into good standing after the spring 2020 term.
