Probation, Suspension, Dismissal
Students who fail to meet minimum scholastic requirements of the University will be placed on probation or be suspended or dismissed. For purposes of measuring this minimum requirement, the grade point average (GPA) is used. Regulations governing academic probation, suspension and dismissal are applied at the end of the fall or spring semester.
A student will be placed on academic probation at the end of any semester in which their West O‘ahu cumulative grade point average (GPA), or overall GPA (incoming and UH West O‘ahu GPA) falls below a 2.0. A student will remain on academic probation until the cumulative or overall GPA rises to 2.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale. A student on academic probation will be considered to be progressing satisfactorily if, at the end of each successive semester, his/her current GPA for that semester is 2.0 or higher.
A student who is on probation with a cumulative or overall GPA below 2.0, and whose current or semester GPA falls below 2.0, will be suspended and denied continued registration for at least one semester. A student who has been academically suspended may reapply to the University of Hawai‘i - West O‘ahu after a one semester (not including summer session) break. However, a student suspended at the end of the spring semester may enroll in the upcoming summer session. If the student raises the cumulative or overall GPA up to 2.0 after attending the summer session at the University of Hawai‘i - West O‘ahu, the suspension period may be waived by the Dean of Student Services. Regulations governing academic suspension are applied at the end of each semester.
Students who have been previously suspended will be dismissed, if upon enrollment with UH West O‘ahu, the student fails to maintain at least a 2.0 semester GPA. Dismissed students will be readmitted only in unusual circumstances.
