Academic Probation

Any student who has attempted academic classes and whose cumulative grade point average is below a 2.0 is considered academically at risk and will be placed on academic probation. The purpose of academic probation is to assure careful academic planning and referral to support services while the student attempts to improve his or her academic record.

The grade report will reflect the status of probation when the cumulative grade point average falls below 2.0.

Support and Intervention for Students on Academic Probation

Any student who is on probation must meet with a counselor or academic advisor prior to registering for any semester or session until the status of probation is removed. This enables the student to build a realistic academic program and receive appropriate referrals to supportive services to afford the maximum possibility for success. Students who are on probation may not take more than 12 semester credits during fall/spring semester, or six credits during the summer session. Students may take 13 credits with written permission from an academic advisor, with documentation of a plan for achieving academic success. The status of academic probation is removed when the student's cumulative GPA becomes 2.0 or better.
