Academic Warning, Probation and Suspension

Academic Warning

A student is placed on academic warning at the end of any semester that his/her cumulative GPA is less than a 2.0.

Academic Probation

A student is placed on academic probation if his/her cumulative GPA falls below a 2.0 for two successive semesters.

Continued probation occurs when the student earns a minimum 2.0 semester grade point average and the cumulative GPA remains below 2.0. The student is returned to good standing when the cumulative GPA is 2.0 or higher.

A student placed on academic probation or a student on continued probation is restricted to enrolling in no more than13 semester hours as outlined below:

Fall 13
Spring 13
Summer A 6
Summer B 6
Summer C 13

It is recommended that the student meet with an academic advisor to develop success strategies.

Academic Suspension

A student on academic probation is placed on academic suspension when the semester grade point average and the cumulative grade point average fall below 2.0. A student placed on academic suspension is suspended for a minimum of one full semester and then must petition the college for readmissions. Please contact Enrollment Services for assistance.

A student returning from suspension who earns a semester GPA of 2.0 or above will not be suspended for that particular semester, even though they may not have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 This performance shows promise and, if continued, will result in good academic standing. Under these circumstances, such a student will continue on academic probation.
