The Veterans Administration (VA) requires that students receiving educational entitlement from the VA must be reported to the VA if they continue in school for a second probationary semester. Educational entitlement may be terminated by the VA until such students have been counseled by VA personnel.

  3. Students with prior academic standing of final probation who earn a semester grade point average below 2.00 and have a cumulative grade point average below 2.00; or
  4. Students who do not return to good standing after two prior continuations of final probation.

Suspension for Two Years

Students who have been suspended, readmitted or reinstated, and again fail to earn the required grade point average are not eligible to apply for readmission, until a period of two years has elapsed.

Reinstatement to Good Standing

Students achieving cumulative grade point averages of 2.00 or higher are reinstated to good standing. Students are, of course expected to make diligent progress in the pursuit of a degree. The standards outlined in the Financial Aid section of the Undergraduate Catalog are the stipulated guidelines for satisfactory academic progress for UW-Platteville students.
