If you're an undergraduate student, Academic Standing helps you to know how well you’re doing in your studies, and where to get advice and support.
- What should you do if your Academic Standing changes to ‘At Academic Risk’ or ‘Academic Restriction’?
- At the end of each semester, including Summer School, we will check how well you are progressing through your qualification and assign you to a category showing your Academic Standing.
- The categories (Good, At Academic Risk, Academic Restriction) indicate whether you are fulfilling your potential to complete your programme or need extra help or advice about how to get back on track.
- We believe you are capable of succeeding in your programme, but your performance may be affected by other factors such as your commitment, time management and life events.
- Academic Standing allows you to judge and manage your academic load more effectively. It ensures we tell you about services and strategies that will help improve your achievement.
- As an undergraduate student, you have to maintain Good Academic Standing by passing at least 50% of points in a semester (including Summer School).
- Academic Standing is calculated when results are available at the end of each semester. If you fail to meet the requirements for Good Academic Standing, we’ll advise you of a change to your Academic Standing. We’ll also encourage you to seek assistance from a range of support services.
|1||Passed at least 50% of points in a semester||Good Academic Standing||No impact.|
|2||Passed less than 50% of points in a semester||At Academic Risk||No enrolment restriction. We will offer you academic advice and determine if other support is appropriate.|
|3||Passed less than 50% of points in the next semester||Academic Restriction||
You will be restricted to a maximum of 45 points in your next semester of enrolment (or 25 points in Summer School) and may be required to participate in academic support programmes.
You may appeal for reconsideration if exceptional circumstances beyond your control have impacted your performance.
|4||Passed less than 50% of points for a third consecutive semester||Enrolment Terminated||
You will be discontinued from all programmes.
You may appeal if exceptional circumstances beyond your control have impacted your performance.
If exceptional circumstances do not apply, you may apply to be considered for readmission after a year.
If your Academic Standing changes, we will advise you by email. Please check your University email regularly, as this is a primary means of official correspondence from the University.
If your academic performance was affected by disabilities, impairments, medical and other exceptional circumstances, you can apply to your faculty student centre for reconsideration of your Academic Standing. You will be expected to show that you have strategies in place to prevent the factors which impaired your academic performance having a continued adverse effect on your studies.
Your application has to be submitted as soon as possible, and at least a week before the semester starts.
If you have any questions, please contact your faculty student centre.
- Talk to an adviser at your faculty student centre about degree planning, your enrolment for the next year, time management and academic support. There are lots of services available to help you such as:
- Investigate other support services offered by the University and AUSA such as:
- Check with StudyLink. Your access to loans and allowances is also based on good academic performance and may be impacted. For more information about the requirements, please refer to www.studylink.govt.nz.
If your Academic Standing is at 'Academic Restriction' and you passed less than 50% of points enrolled for that semester, your Academic Standing will be changed to 'Enrolment Terminated'.
The University will discontinue your enrolment and you will be excluded from all programmes at The University of Auckland.
After a period of one year of exclusion you will be entitled to reapply for admission to a programme.
You will be expected to provide evidence showing that you have taken steps during the interim period to prevent the factors that impaired your academic performance having a continued adverse effect on your studies. This may include appropriate study, work experience or other actions that demonstrate to the satisfaction of the faculty your ability to undertake successful study at the University.
If you reapply, the University may:
- re-admit you under specific conditions
- decline readmission.
If you are declined re-admission, you may wish to discuss the appeals process with your faculty student centre.
