  1. Good Academic Standing. Students are considered to be “in good academic standing” if they maintain a semester minimum GPA of 2.00, are eligible to reenroll at the College, and are not on academic suspension or dismissal status.

  2. Academic Warning. Any student who fails to attain a minimum GPA of 2.0 for any semester will receive an academic warning. Students on academic warning should be encouraged to consult with their counselor and take advantage of academic support services provided by the College.

  3. Academic Probation. Students who fail to maintain a cumulative GPA of 1.5 shall be on academic probation until such a time as their cumulative average is 1.75 or better. The statement “Academic Probation” shall be placed on their permanent records. Students on probation are ineligible for appointive or elective office in student organizations unless special permission is granted by Vice-President of Instruction and Student Services. Students may be required to carry less than a normal course load the following semester and are required to consult with their counselor.

    A student pursuing a degree program is cautioned that, although an average between 1.5 and 1.99 may not result in formal academic probation, a minimum of 2.0 in the curriculum is a prerequisite to the receipt of an associate degree, diploma, or a certificate.

    Students shall be placed on probation only after they have attempted twelve semester credit hours.

  4. Academic Suspension. Students on academic probation who fail to attain a semester GPA of 1.50 or better shall be placed on suspension only after they have attempted 24 semester credits.  Academic Suspension shall be for one semester. The statement, “Academic Suspension,” shall be placed on the students' permanent records.

    Students who are placed on academic suspension and wish to appeal may submit an appeal in writing to the Director of Admissions for reconsideration of the case. Suspended students may be reinstated at the conclusion of the suspension period and upon formal written petition to the Director of Admissions. Students who have been reinstated from academic suspension must achieve a 2.0 GPA for the semester of their reinstatement and must earn at least a 1.75 GPA in each subsequent semester of attendance. The statement “Subject to Dismissal” shall be placed on the students’ permanent records. Students who have been reinstated from academic suspension will remain subject to dismissal until their cumulative GPA is raised to a minimum of 1.75. Reinstated students may be required to carry less than a normal course load the following semester and are required to consult with their counselor. Students who are readmitted after being on academic suspension are required to satisfactorily complete a study skills course, SDV-104. This course must be completed within the first 12 credits after readmission to the College.

  5. Academic Dismissal. Students who do not attain at least 2.0 GPA following academic suspension shall be academically dismissed. Students who achieve at least a 2.0 GPA for the semester of their reinstatement following academic suspension must earn at least a 1.75 GPA in each subsequent semester. Failure to attain a 1.75 GPA in each subsequent semester until the cumulative GPA reaches 1.75 shall result in academic dismissal. The statement “Academic Dismissal” shall be placed on the students’ permanent records.

    Academic dismissal normally is permanent. In exceptional circumstances, students may appeal. All appeals must be submitted thirty days prior to the first day of class for the semester in which the student plans to attend. Students who have been reinstated after academic dismissal will remain subject to dismissal until their cumulative GPA is raised to a minimum of 1.75. Reinstated students may be required to carry less than a normal course load the following semester and are required to consult with their counselor. Students who are readmitted after being on academic dismissal are required to satisfactorily complete a study skills course, SDV-100. This course must be completed within the first 12 credits after readmission to the College.
