Acceptable Scholastic Performance

Acceptable scholastic performance, also known as Good Standing, is based upon grade point average (GPA). Semester GPA and GPA (1) determine academic standing and are computed at the end of each semester. Procedures have been developed to positively intervene with Academic Standings other than "Good".

Scholastic Standards (Academic Standings)

Good Standing: Good Standing is awarded to students maintaining a cumulative/overall GPA (1) of 2.0 or higher. Students who do not earn an overall GPA (1) of 2.0 or higher are placed on Probation One.

Probation One (PROB1): Students on Probation One may have the total number of credit hours limited and may be required to register for specific courses. Students on Probation One must earn a semester GPA of at least 2.0 or withdraw from any coursework attempted. Students that meet the semester requirement will remain on Probation One until their cumulative GPA (1) is 2.0 or higher. Students with a standing of PROB1 who do not meet the semester requirement will be placed on Suspension.

Suspension (SUSP): Students on Suspension are ineligible to enroll in credit courses in the next subsequent semester or session of enrollment (Fall Semester, Spring Semester or Summer Session).

Probation Two (PROB2): Students readmitted after Suspension will be placed on Probation Two. Students on Probation Two may have the total number of credit hours limited and may be required to register for specific courses. Students on Probation Two must earn a semester GPA of at least 2.0 or withdraw from any coursework attempted. Students that meet the semester requirement remain on Probation Two until their cumulative GPA (1) is 2.0 or higher. Students with a standing of PROB2 who do not meet the semester requirement will be placed on Academic Dismissal.

Academic Dismissal (DISM): Students on Academic Dismissal are not eligible to enroll in credit courses for a period of 12 months.

Probation Three (PROB3): Students readmitted after Dismissal will be placed on Probation Three. Students on Probation Three may have the total number of credit hours limited and may be required to register for specific courses. Students on Probation Three must earn a semester GPA of at least 2.0 or withdraw from any coursework attempted. Students that meet the semester requirement remain on Probation Three until their cumulative GPA (1) is 2.0 or higher. Students with a standing of PROB3 who do not meet the semester requirement will be placed on Indefinite Dismissal.

Indefinite Academic Dismissal (IDIS): 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.

Transferring from Other Colleges

Students on Academic Probation or in academic distress from another institution may have their academic history reviewed for admission based on college 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 required to see an advisor to register. Students 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.
