Students who have been placed on Academic Probation will be limited to 14 credits and credit equivalents or 4 courses. Additional limitations may include non-admittance to certain courses and/or required enrollment in one of the College’s freshman orientation-type courses. No student on academic probation may register without signed approval by one of the following: the curriculum chairperson, the dean of the student’s division or an advisor in the Advising Center.
Students who have been placed on Academic Restriction will be limited to 8 credits and credit equivalents or 2 courses. Additional limitations may include non-admittance to certain courses and/or required enrollment in one of the College’s freshman orientation-type courses. No student on academic restriction may register without signed approval by one of the following: the curriculum chairperson, the dean of the student’s division or an advisor in the Advising Center.
Students who have been academically suspended are prohibited from enrolling at the College for a period that includes one fall or spring semester. A suspension at the conclusion of a fall semester includes both winter and spring semesters. A suspension at the conclusion of a spring semester includes both summer and fall. If the student returns following the suspension period, he/she is subject to scheduling limitations as described under Academic Probation.
Students who have been academically dismissed are prohibited from enrolling at the College for a minimum period of two years. A student wishing to be reinstated following dismissal must submit a reinstatement appeal demonstrating his or her readiness to pursue college studies. An 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 2.0 in the coursework taken subsequent to readmission.
Course Repeat Limitation and Academic Status
Since a course may be attempted no more than 3 times, failure to complete a course successfully within 3 attempts may result in Academic Suspension or Dismissal – even if those statuses are not otherwise indicated by the above criteria.
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 special program requirements).
All of the above information is also available in the College Catalog.
