Scholastic Probation / Suspension


Good standing: The good standing is awarded to students maintaining a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher and who complete at least one course each semester/session of enrollment.

Academic Probation: Failure to maintain a 2.0, “C” cumulative grade-point average, will result in the student being placed on academic probation for the next semester enrolled. A student may remove himself/herself from academic probation by bringing his/her cumulative grade-point average to a 2.0 or better.

Academic Suspension: Should the student earn less than a 2.0 grade-point average for two semesters of enrollment and have less than a 1.5 grade-point average for the most current semester, the student will be placed on academic suspension for one regular semester (fall or spring). Students who are on academic suspension will not be allowed to register for classes.

Right of Appeal: A student who has been placed on academic suspension and who feels that his or her case deserves special consideration may appeal the decision in person to the appropriate instructional, campus or Executive Dean, who may, in extenuating circumstances, reinstate the student for one additional semester. If readmission is granted, the student will reenter on academic probation for that one semester until end of course grades determine the student’s academic standing for the next semester.
