Students should check their academic status on WebAdvisor at the conclusion of each semester. Those students whose cumulative grade point average falls below 2.00 will receive a letter indicating their status at the conclusion of each semester.
The consequences for students whose cumulative grade point averages (GPAs) fall below 2.00 are as follows:
Note: A student who is on academic probation or restriction status cannot be downgraded to academic suspension or dismissal in any subsequent semester for which the term grade point average (GPA) is at or above 2.0.
Developmental Education Courses
A student whose schedule includes developmental courses is expected to earn at least a 2.0 semester average, and a “C” or better in all developmental courses. Failure to do so will result in Academic Probation. Failure to earn at least a 1.00 semester average will result in Academic Restriction.
A student on Academic Restriction or Academic Probation who, in a subsequent semester while still enrolled in developmental courses, fails to earn a 2.00 semester average in all courses will be placed on Academic Suspension.
A student who is on academic probation or restriction status cannot be downgraded to academic suspension or dismissal in any subsequent semester for which the term grade point average (GPA) is at or above 2.0. However, if a student is taking a developmental course in that semester, the student needs to achieve a grade of “C” or better in that semester for this allowance to apply.
Basis for Academic Dismissal
Academic Dismissal will occur when a student, who has been readmitted following Academic Suspension or previous Academic Dismissal, fails to maintain an overall GPA of 2.00 in the coursework taken subsequent to readmission.
Course Repeat Limitation and Academic Status
Students may attempt a course three times. Permission from the Academic Advising Center is required to enroll beyond three attempts.
Curriculum Suspension and Dismissal
In addition to the College-wide standards outlined above, individual programs may have stricter standards regarding continued enrollment in those programs (see program requirements).
