If the UNLV grade point balance of a student already warned by probation falls to -15 or below, the university will suspend the student for a minimum of one calendar year. A suspended student will not be allowed to take any UNLV credit courses. If there was extenuating circumstances preventing successful academic progress and they have been resolved, students may petition the Faculty Senate for early reinstatement.
In order to petition, students must clearly document their situation and take the petition to their advisor, chair and dean for review. Once the petition has been received by the Faculty Senate office it will be reviewed at the next meeting.
If you have any questions, please contact the Senate Office at 702-895-3689.
