Even if you change your major, the classes that do not apply to your new major still count in your UCHL cumulative GPA.
The average of all the classes you take at UHCL in a single semester. This is only important if you are on probation or suspension.
Undergraduate students whose Cumulative GPA drops below 3.00 are placed on probation.
While on probation, the semester GPA must be 3.00 or better every semester until the cumulative GPA rises to 3.00, at which time the student is removed from probation.
If, while on probation, a student earns a semester GPA of less than 3.00, the student is placed on suspension, cannot attend UCHL for one semester, and must request reinstatement.
A second suspension is for one year.
A third suspension is forever.
Be aware of UHCL’s +/- grading system:
BEWARE! The grade of B- is only 2.667 points
1. SCE Graduate students may request to change your major once, and only once, in an academic year.
2. There will be a window of time each semester when SCE Advising will accept graduate student requests to change majors. The window to change majors opens at the beginning of Open Registration.
3. If you request and are accepted to a new major, you forfeitthe opportunity to be accepted back to your former major.
5. Allow 4-6 weeks for a decision on acceptance to a new major. If denied, you will remain in your current major and there will be no change in your status.
Many departments have the authority to put holds on students which will prevent you from registering.
Examples include overdue library books, unpaid parking tickets, unpaid fees.
Academic Advisors CANNOT help you with any of these holds
