Acceptable Scholastic Performance

Acceptable scholastic performance, also known as Good Standing, is based upon student progress toward successful course and program completion. The two components used to compute academic standing are GPA (1) and course completion. Academic Standings are computed beginning with the first enrollment. Procedures are developed to positively intervene with Academic Standings other than "Good".

Scholastic Standards

Good Standing: The Good Standing standard is awarded to students maintaining a cumulative GPA (1) of 2.0 or higher.

Probation One: Students who fail to earn a GPA (1) of 2.0 are placed on Probation One. Probation One may have coursework and total number of credit hours limited and may be required to register for specific courses. Students on Probation One must earn a semester GPA (1) of at least 2.0 or withdraw from any coursework attempted. Students will remain on Probation One until their cumulative GPA (1) is 2.0 or higher.

Suspension: Students on Probation One will be placed on Suspension if they fail to earn a semester GPA (1) of at least 2.0 or withdraw from any coursework attempted. Students on Suspension are ineligible to enroll in credit courses in the next subsequent session of enrollment (Fall Semester, Spring Semester or Summer Session).

Probation Two: Students readmitted after Suspension will be placed on Probation Two. Students on Probation Two may have coursework and total number of credit hours limited and may be required to register for specific courses. Students on Probation Two must earn a semester GPA (1) of at least 2.0 or withdraw from any coursework attempted. Students will remain on Probation Two until their cumulative GPA (1) is 2.0 or higher.

Academic Dismissal: Students on Probation Two will be placed on Academic Dismissal if they fail to earn a semester GPA (1) of at least 2.0 or withdraw from any coursework attempted. Students on Academic Dismissal are not eligible to enroll in credit courses for a period of 12 months.

Probation Three: Students on Academic Dismissal will be readmitted on Probation Three. Students on Probation Three may have coursework and total number of credit hours limited and may be required to register for specific courses. Students on Probation Three must earn a semester GPA (1) of at least 2.0 or withdraw from any coursework attempted. Students will remain on Probation Three until their cumulative GPA (1) is 2.0 or higher.

Indefinite Academic Dismissal: Students on Probation Three will be placed on Indefinite Academic Dismissal if they fail to earn a semester GPA (1) of at least 2.0 or withdraw from any coursework attempted. Students on Indefinite Academic Dismissal are not eligible to enroll for 12 months and are only eligible to enroll after that period upon the recommendation of the chief student affairs officer or designee at the college last attended.

Other Colleges

Students on Academic Probation from another institution may have their academic history reviewed for admission based on campus requirements.

If you are on academic suspension or academic dismissal from another institution, you are not guaranteed registration at the college unless you have met the academic standings required by the college.

Review of Academic Standings

Students placed on Probation One, Two, or Three will be notified of their status and will be required to see an advisor to register. These students may be required to register for a limited course load and to register for specific courses by the college. Student may request a review of any academic standing, including Probation One, Probation Two, Probation Three, Suspension, Academic Dismissal and Indefinite Academic Dismissal. The chief student affairs officer at each college is responsible for establishing a review process.

It is the student's responsibility to understand and comply with the college's academic standings and procedures of the institution.
