Academic Recovery

A Culture of Student Success

All students have the opportunity to be successful, and we have resources to help students on a variety of paths meet their goals.

The University of Arizona is committed to seeing students thrive and graduate.  When a student's cumulative GPA is below a 2.0, it results in an academic status changing from “Good Standing” to “Probation.” However, we believe that students working through the probation process can still be success at the University of Arizona.   There are programs in place to help. Students will hear from program staff closer to the beginning of the semester, but can learn more about the programs below. 


What does probation mean?

We recognize that students find themselves on probation for a variety of reasons and that each case is unique to the student.   We also know, based on research, that they can raise their GPA by applying themselves(it will take continual hard work!), by employing the best strategies, and by utilizing all the staff and resources the university has put in place to help them succeed.    

One of the available resources includes an academic intervention that will be chosen by the colleges. Many students find these interventions extremely helpful because they are individualized to meet needs. To cover the expense of these programs students are  charged a one-time $100 academic recovery fee.  

We encourage students to talk to their academic advisor about their current academic status and if they have questions about the academic intervention program or fee contact
