Online Course Restrictions

Enrollment Guidelines


The University of Arkansas – Fort Smith wants all students to be successful and receive the maximum benefit from all course work.  Based on data and feedback from faculty who teach online courses, the University has implemented guidelines restricting the following students from enrolling in full online/hybrid courses:


  • Those who are registered in READ 0513 and/or ENGL 0163
  • Those who are on academic probation or suspension
  • Those who are on academic warning

Students may enroll in full online or hybrid courses once they are in good academic standing and have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better.  These students must meet with their academic advisor for permission to enroll in online courses.
