UNIVERSITY HONORS PROBATION POLICY

Honors students will be placed on probation if one or both of the following occurs:

  • UCF cumulative GPA is less than 3.2
  • Honors cumulative GPA is less than 3.0

Students must achieve a minimum 3.2 TERM UCF GPA and a minimum 3.0 TERM Honors GPA (if enrolled in Honors courses) while on probation. Students who do not meet these requirements while on probation will be removed from the University Honors program. Students will be removed from probationary status once their UCF and Honors cumulative GPAs return to the required 3.2 and 3.0, respectively.

Any questions regarding this policy should be directed to the Office of Honors Advising.


HONORS WITHDRAWAL POLICY

Students who do not take any Honors classes for two consecutive semesters (including future semesters) and/or are off-track with their Honors requirements will be asked to meet with the Office of Honors Advising to discuss future Honors coursework. Honors students will be informed of this during the semi-annual Honors audit process in December and May. At this time, students will receive an email to their KnightsMail account instructing them to check their Honors status on myHonors.

If a student does not meet with the Office of Honors Advising, and does not take any Honors classes for four consecutive semesters (including future semesters), they may be withdrawn from the University Honors program.

Students who are withdrawn may apply for reinstatement into the program after meeting with an Honors advisor and devising a mutually agreed upon plan of study to complete University Honors requirements. Students who do not complete this plan of study may be withdrawn permanently from the University Honors program.


HONORS SYMPOSIUM POLICY

All First-Time in College (FTIC) students in the University Honors program must enroll and earn a Satisfactory (S) grade in Honors Symposium (IDH 1920H) during their first fall semester at UCF.

FTIC students who do not receive an S grade in IDH 1920H will be placed on Honors Probation at the conclusion of the fall semester, regardless of their UCF GPA or Honors GPA.

FTIC Students who do not receive an S grade in IDH 1920H during their first fall semester at UCF must attain either:

  • at least a cumulative 3.2 UCF GPA AND at least a cumulative 3.0 Honors GPA after the spring semester following the U grade in IDH 1920H, or
  • at least a term 3.2 UCF GPA AND at least a term 3.0 Honors GPA for the spring semester following the U grade in IDH 1920H.

Students who do not attain either option will be removed from the University Honors program at the end of that spring semester.

FTIC students who do not receive an S grade in IDH 1920H must enroll and earn an S grade in IDH 1920H during the subsequent fall semester at UCF. Students who do not earn an S grade during their second attempt will be removed from the University Honors program at the end of their second fall semester regardless of their UCF or Honors GPA.

Students can petition to be reinstated into the University Honors program on a one-time basis through the Office of Student Services in BHC 110. However, students who do not receive an S grade in IDH 1920H in two fall semesters are not eligible for reinstatement.
