Academic Suspension

Starting with the Fall 2005 semester, students will no longer be suspended at the end of the fall term; students will only be suspended at the end of the spring term. This rule applies to all UNO colleges, including University Division, and all University of Nebraska-Lincoln based programs in the Colleges of Architecture, Agriculture, Education and Human Resources, and Engineering.

Students who are on probation will be suspended at the end of the spring semester when their semester grade point average is lower than 2.0 and the cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) falls below the following standards:

Hours Attempted Cumulative GPA
0-12 No Suspension
13-45 1.75
46 or more 2.00

Suspensions under these conditions will be automatic. Academic suspension will be for a minimum period of one year.

Students will be notified by their primary academic college of their suspension and given instructions on how to appeal, should they choose to do so, and any appropriate deadlines associated with an appeal.

Appeals properly filed shall delay implementation of the suspension until the appropriate appeals committee has acted. However, if the appeal is denied the student shall be disenrolled and tuition shall be refunded.

Reinstatement Following Suspension

Applications for reinstatement of students on academic suspension from the University of Nebraska at Omaha shall be obtained from the college from which the student was suspended and submitted to the Registrar. This application must be submitted at least one month prior to the official beginning of the semester or term for which the student is applying (refer to academic calendar for specific dates).
