Academic standing

Dean’s list

Each school and college at the University of Missouri determines its own dean’s list eligibility for undergraduate students. To qualify for the dean’s list in the School of Health Professions, a student must earn a 3.30 GPA in a minimum of 12 graded (A-F) credit hours. Dean’s list honors only apply to Fall and Spring semesters. Students eligible for dean’s list will receive an email from the School of Health Professions.

Academic actions

An academic action is a change in academic status because of grades earned.

Academic probation

Academic probation is an academic deficiency that automatically applies any time a student’s GPA falls below 2.0 (cumulative or term GPA). Students on academic probation have two semesters following the first semester on probation to be moved to good standing, which requires a 2.0 term and cumulative MU GPA.

An academic program may have a more stringent academic policy that could place a student on academic probation for that degree program. This is not the same as the university academic probation policy, and while a student may be placed on academic probation for their specific degree program, it is not a university-wide probation status. Students should refer to their specific degree program academic policy manual, or speak with their academic adviser if they have questions about specific requirements.

Continued academic probation

Students on academic probation have two consecutive semesters to be removed from probation. Students who do not receive 2.0 term and cumulative GPA in the first semester of that probation are placed on continued academic probation. Students on continued academic probation have one semester to earn a 2.0 term and cumulative GPA or they will be ineligible to re-enroll thereafter.

Ineligible to enroll

A student may be considered ineligible to re-enroll if they meet one of the following conditions:

  • They are admitted to the University of Missouri on final probation and do not earn the required GPA to continue;
  • They have a term GPA less than 1.0;
  • They have had three consecutive semesters where the term and cumulative GPA are below 2.0;
  • They have successfully appealed the previous semester for re-enrollment and have not met the GPA requirement for continuation.

Students who are ineligible to re-enroll in the MU School of Health Professions will be given the opportunity to appeal. Appeals are not guaranteed approval, and advisors work with students to help them develop alternate plans.


A student who has been dismissed from the School of Health Professions is eligible to apply for re-enrollment one year after dismissal. For example, a student dismissed after the Spring 2015 semester is ineligible to enroll for Fall 2015. The student will be able to apply for re-enrollment for Fall 2016 with the following qualifications:

  1. The student enrolls in another institution and completes a minimum of 12 graded credit hours and earns a 3.0 or higher. The student must wait one academic year to reapply.
  2. The student waits one year and takes 6+ hours through the Visiting Student Program at the University of Missouri.
