3.3. Academic Progress Standards

 
Students pursuing an associate degree, diploma, or certificate are required to maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 ("C") or better which indicates satisfactory academic progress. Once a student has attempted at least twelve (12) credit hours and has failed to meet the standards for Academic Progress, the student will be placed on academic warning, probation or suspension and must meet specific conditions to continue their enrollment.
 
Students in specific programs and students receiving financial aid and/or veteran’s benefits must also meet the specific academic requirements that determine continuation for these programs.
 
3.3.1. Academic Warning
 
Academic Warning occurs when a student has attempted at least 12, but not more than 23 credit hours with a cumulative grade point average less than 2.0. The student will be notified of his/her warning status. Students on academic warning are required:
 
 To meet with an academic advisor prior to the fourth week of the semester following placement on academic warning.
 
 In collaboration with the academic advisor, the student will develop a written Academic Success Plan. The plan may include tutoring and other forms of academic assistance.
 
 To obtain a minimum semester GPA of 2.0 for every semester.
 
Academic warning is removed when the cumulative GPA requirement is met.
 
3.3.2. Academic Probation
 
Academic Probation occurs when a student has attempted 24, but not more than 32 credit hours with a cumulative grade point average less than 2.0. The student will be notified of his/her probation status. Students on academic probation are required:
 
 To meet with an academic advisor prior to the fourth week of the semester following placement on academic probation.
 
 In collaboration with the academic advisor, the student will develop a written Academic Success Plan. The plan will include limitations on enrollment and other forms of academic assistance.
 
 To limit enrollment to no more than nine (9) credit hours per semester.
 
 To obtain a minimum semester GPA of 2.0 for every semester.
 
Academic probation is removed when the cumulative GPA requirement is met.
 
3.3.3. Academic Suspension
 
Academic Suspension occurs when a student has attempted 33 credit hours with a cumulative grade point average less than 2.0. These students will not be allowed to register again for one full calendar year.
 
3.3.4. Readmission for Academic Suspension
 
A student must submit a written request to the Senior Director of Student Services for readmission following an academic suspension. The request must be received at least two weeks prior to the start of any semester. The director will confer with the student’s academic advisor before rendering a decision. As a condition of readmission, students must follow the specific recommendations of the director. Additionally, students granted readmission will be placed on Academic Probation and will be expected to maintain a semester GPA of 2.0 or higher for subsequent semesters.
