Academic Advising

Academic Probation and Suspension

All students must maintain a cumulative University of South Carolina GPA of at least 2.00 to remain in good academic standingMany academic majors have higher GPA requirements to continue in their degree programs. You should become familiar with the academic requirements necessary to progress within your major.


In response to concerns presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, the UofSC Faculty Senate voted that no student will be suspended due to poor academic performance at the conclusion of the spring 2020 semester.

  • Students who were placed on university academic probation at the conclusion of the fall 2019 semester will continue on university academic probation (i.e. will not be suspended) if their cumulative UofSC GPA remains below a 2.0 at the conclusion of spring 2020.
  • Students whose cumulative UofSC GPA rises above 2.0 at the conclusion of spring 2020 will return to good academic standing.
