UH Suspension Policies

If you are on academic probation (overall cumulative GPA has fallen below 2.0), and your semester GPA falls below 2.0, you will be placed on academic suspension.

  • While on suspension, a CLASS student may not apply for readmission until the conditions listed below have been met.
    • First suspension: You must sit out the next full semester, either the fall or the spring.
    • Second suspension: You must sit out one full year (12 months).
    • Third suspension: You are not eligible to be readmitted to UH Main Campus.
    • Readmission is not granted for the summer semester.
    • Readmission is neither automatic nor guaranteed.
      • Students must review readmission criteria for the college and major they intend to apply for.

What to Do While on Academic Suspension

  • Evaluate your academic and career goals to determine what area of study you really want to pursue.
  • Discuss your options with your major advisor and career counselor in University Career Services UCS.
  • Review strategies to improve your academic performance and avoid suspension in the future.
  • Take classes at a community college or other university. Ensure coursework can be transferred to UH and used to meet major degree requirements.
  • Collaborate with your intended CLASS major advisor to be sure coursework can be transferred to UH to meet degree requirements.
  • Pay any outstanding debt you owe UH on your myUH account.

*If you wish to pursue a degree outside of CLASS, you may reapply on the Apply Texas Application directly to that major. Keep in mind, each college has different readmission from suspension requirements, and you will need to meet their readmission requirements to be readmitted.

*Please ensure that you check other UH college websites to determine what you need to do for readmission. You will only get one major choice selection when you apply online.

*If you do not meet the criteria for the area of study you are interested in pursuing at UH, consider other alternatives at UH or at other area institutions.
