Undergraduate Academic Policies
Our academic policies are designed to help you stay on track with your studies and reflect university-wide policies. If you find yourself heading into academic trouble, contact your advisor.
Grades Replacement and Appeals
If you feel you've been given a grade incorrectly, the first step is to contact your instructor to discuss the matter. If you aren't able to resolve things directly, you can consider filing a grade appeal.
You can also consider using the Grade Replacement Opportunity to raise a grade you've received in a course.
Academic Progress and Probation
All UA students are required to make sufficient academic progress. For undergraduates, this means a cumulative GPA of 2.0. If you've been placed on probation, check out the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences information on academic progress, probation, and dismissal from the university.
Retroactive Withdrawal from Courses
If you need to retroactively withdrawal from courses due to extenuating circumstances after the semester has ended, you'll need to file a general petition.
General Education Substitutions
In some circumstances, it may be possible to substitute a different course to meet a general education requirement. To learn more and initiate the process, see our General Education Petition.
