Undergraduate academic standing and dismissal

Students who are on second semester probation and fail to raise their cumulative University of Nevada, Reno grade-point-average (GPA) above the academic probation threshold (2.0) will be dismissed from the University.

Students will receive a letter and an email notifying them to access updated information on their academic status via MyNEVADA. Once dismissed the student is not allowed to enroll at the University of Nevada, Reno for a period of one calendar year.

Release from University dismissal

After one year, an undergraduate student who has been dismissed may return to the University only on the basis of evidence that underlying conditions have materially improved and that they are now capable of academic success. Contact your academic advisor for appropriate criteria. The requirements for re-acceptance to specific programs and majors are always subject to both general University and specific program standards.

Students seeking release from dismissal must submit an application for release to the Office of Admissions and Records no later than 20 business days prior to the beginning of the term. The Dismissal Review Committee will return a decision no later than the last business day prior to the first day of classes of the next regular term. Late registration fees will be assessed according to the regular registration calendar.

Appeal of dismissal

Ten business days after students are notified they have been dismissed, a student's registration for the next regular semester will be cancelled. Students will receive a letter and an email notifying them to access updated information on their academic status via MyNEVADA.

Students who could be in good standing at the end of one additional semester may appeal to be reinstated by submitting the "Appeal Undergraduate Dismissal" form available at the Office of Admissions and Records, located on the second floor of the Fitzgerald Student Services building.

Students must submit their appeal to the Office of Admissions and Records within 10 business days of notification of dismissal to hold their registration pending the outcome of their appeal. Appeals may be submitted no later than 10 business days prior to the beginning of the next regular term. The Dismissal Review Committee must return a decision by the last business day prior to the first day of classes of the next regular term. Appeals will be processed only if it is mathematically possible to reach good-standing at the end of one additional semester. Late registration fees will be assessed according to the regular registration calendar.
