A minimum 2.0 cumulative institutional GPA is required to remain in good academic standing at A&M-San Antonio.

Academic Warning

Students will fall on Academic Warning at the end of their first semester or term at A&M-San Antonio (transfer or freshman) if they earn less than a 2.0 institutional GPA. Does not apply to returning students.

Requirements:
In order to get off of academic warning, a student must bring their institutional GPA to a 2.0 or higher by the following semester or term. If the student does not bring their GPA to a 2.0 in one semester or term, the student will then be placed on Scholastic Probation. All academic warning students will be required to meet with an Academic Success Coach, but will not be required to complete the P.A.S. Program.


Scholastic Probation

Students will be placed on scholastic probation any time their institutional GPA at A&M-San Antonio falls below 2.0.

Requirements:
Students placed on scholastic probation for the first time are required to seek academic advising before registering for classes and are required to meet with the Student Academic Success Center in order to register for the following term and participate in the P.A.S. Program.

In order to remain on scholastic probation, a student must earn a semester or term GPA of 2.0. As long as the student maintains a semester or term GPA of a 2.0 and remains beneath a 2.0 institutional GPA, the student will be required to meet with the Student Academic Success Center and participate in the P.A.S. Program. Students on scholastic probation are limited to 13 hours every semester they remain on scholastic probation.
