Students who do not achieve the minimum GPA requirements for their program of study but are above the academic suspension threshold will be placed on academic probation.

Students who are continuing in their program while on Academic Probation must meet specific GPA requirements. Those students who do not meet the GPA requirements of Academic Probation at the end of the term will be placed on academic suspension for two consecutive terms.

GPA requirements for Academic Probation depend on your credential.

Ontario College Certificate, Diploma, Advanced Diploma, Graduate Certificate programs

A student will be placed on Academic Probation if their

  • Program Term GPA falls below 2.0 but is equal to or greater than 1.2; or
  • Program Term GPA is less than 1.2 but the Cumulative GPA is greater than 1.2.

Students completing their first semester will be placed on Academic Probation, rather than Academic suspension, if their Term and Cumulative GPAs fall below 1.2.

A student who is continuing in their program while on Academic Probation must earn a minimum Program Term GPA of 2.0.

If a student’s Program Term GPA is less than 2.0 or the Program Cumulative GPA is less than 1.2, the student will be placed on Academic Suspension for two terms.

If a student’s Program Term GPA is at or above 2.0 but the Program Cumulative GPA is less than 2.0 but at or above 1.2, the student will receive a Graduation Warning (GW).

A student will return to Good Standing (00) once they have achieved the required minimum 2.0 Program Term GPA and 2.0 Program Cumulative GPA.
