UConn's Pass/Fail Policy

Supplementary Scholastic Standards

In the College of Engineering, students must maintain a 2.5 cumulative GPA after completing 24 or more credits to be considered in good standing. Students must maintain a minimum 2.3 cumulative GPA to continue in the College of Engineering.

Students who fall below a 2.3 cumulative GPA after 24 credits in residence will be removed from the College of Engineering and moved to the Academic Center for Exploratory Students.

Residence means courses completed at one of the UConn campuses and does not include Early College Experience or non-degree courses. Students will have the opportunity to appeal this decision. If a student’s cumulative GPA falls between 2.3 and 2.5, they will be considered on academic probation for the School of Engineering. Students on academic probation will be reduced to a 14-credit load until the cumulative GPA improves to at least 2.5. Students may stay in the College of Engineering while on academic probation with the reduced credit load.
