Academic Disqualification

Students on academic and/or progress probation shall be dismissed for one semester when one or more of the following conditions exist:

  • The student has earned a cumulative grade point average of less than 2.00 in all units attempted in each of the three consecutive semesters. (For purposes of this section, semesters shall be considered consecutive based on the student’s enrollment.)
  • The student has received course completion symbols of F, NP, I and/or W in fifty (50) percent or more of the units for which he/she was enrolled in each of three consecutive semesters.
  • The student has received a combination of the two patterns listed above in each of three consecutive semesters.

As with probation, a student will be informed of dismissal by email and/or letter. In addition, students may appeal their probation status by making an appointment with a program counselor and completing the required paperwork.
