Academic Probation

A student receives a first academic warning if his/her CGPA falls below 2.0 by the end of any semester except his/her first semester at AFU. Having received the first warning, he/she is not allowed to register for more than 15 credit hours in the following semester.

Should a student fail to raise his/her CGPA to at least 2.0 in the following semester, then he/she will be given a second warning and will not be allowed to register for more than 12 credit hours.

Should a student fail to raise his/her CGPA to at least 2.0, the student becomes liable to one of the following actions based on the College Council’s decision:

  1. transfer the student to another major within the same college;
  2. transfer the student to another college.

A student is given two semesters to raise his/her CGPA after changing his/ her major or college. Should the student fail to do this, he/she will be expelled from the university.

If a student’s CGPA is at least 1.9, and he/she has completed at least 75% of the credit hours required for graduation, then he/she will not be dismissed from the university, but will be permitted to continue in the same major until he/ she reaches the maximum study duration.

The summer session does not count for an academic warning period.
