Academic Probation/Dismissal Overview

Any degree or certificate candidate whose graduation grade-point average is below 2.0 will be placed on academic probation.

A student may be terminated from the College if his/her graduation grade-point average is under 1.0 at the end of the first semester's work, under 1.5 at the end of the second semester's work, or under 1.8 at the end of the third semester of work. (A semesterís work is generally defined as the courses listed for a semester in a given major, or 15 credits of course work.) Probation review will determine the semester status in special situations.

Students with a graduation GPA under 2.0 in any three semesters will be academically dismissed.

Probation review occurs at the end of each semester and specifies the conditions under which students with grade-point averages below 2.0 will be permitted to continue at the College. In some circumstances, students who are academically dismissed may appeal the action to the Associate Vice President for Academic Services.

More information about Academic Probation is available on the Academic Affairs website.

NOTE: Some majors, such as those in Health Sciences or Aviation, have additional, definitive academic standards set forth by the academic schools and accrediting agencies.
