These students will receive probation letters from the Dean of the College.  The letter will also recommend that the student take such actions as seeking advisement or counseling and reviewing work schedules. Students placed on academic probation will be required to receive advisement before registration.  Students on probation must make satisfactory progress in their next semester or they will be subject to dismissal (i.e., two consecutive probationary semesters will subject students to dismissal proceedings). Unless otherwise stipulated by the Academic Standards Committee or otherwise noted in this Bulletin, students on probation are not precluded from participation in college-sponsored co-curricular activities.

 

Academic Dismissal

Students are reviewed for academic dismissal at the end of each semester. Students will be dismissed after two consecutive semesters on probation. Dismissed students are no longer eligible to continue at the College and will be denied further registration.  Notification of dismissal is sent by mail and e-mail to the student’s home address on record with the College at the end of the semester in question. Each student is responsible for informing the College through the Office of Records and Scheduling of updates and changes to his/her address.

 

Minimum Grade Point Requirements

 

Any student with a GPA below 2.00 shall be on Academic Probation.

 

Notes:
