Suspension & Reinstatement
When a student has been on probation for two semesters and is unable to maintain a current grade point average of 2.0 or higher, that student will be suspended from academic enrollment for a period of one semester of the regular (not including summer semester) academic year. The official transcript will reflect this action. A student may appeal academic suspension to the Registrar in writing.
Reinstatement following academic suspension
A student who has been academically suspended is encouraged to petition the Registrar for reinstatement when the waiting period is over if he/she feels that sufficient changes have occurred to enable academic success. This petition must be made in writing at least two weeks prior to the beginning of the semester for which the student is seeking re-entry. Include in your letter 1) Circumstances you feel will lead to better academic performance. 2) Your goals at NMC; for example, major field of study and career plans. 3) Your plans regarding employment if you are reinstated.
