Unacceptable academic performance may result in a student receiving an academic warning. This warning includes: (i) a description of the unacceptable performance; (ii) a description of the required performance improvement; (iii) the schedule for demonstrating improved performance; and (iv) the consequences, which may include withdrawal, for failing to remedy the situation in the specified timeframe.
Policy 92 - Continuance in a Program
The purpose of this policy is to describe the criteria and guidelines for academic standing and continuance at UFV. A student's academic standing, based on grade point averages, determines his or her enrolment status and any conditions associated with that status, indluding the ability to continue as a student.
The policy states that students must have a CGPA of at least 2.00 to remain enrolled in Good Academic Standing at UFV. In additions, students must meet the continuance requirements set by their program in order to remain enrolled in the program.
