Degree and certificate seeking students are in good academic standing if they are making satisfactory academic progress.
Degree and certificate seeking students will be evaluated using the following criteria:
- Cumulative GPA of at least 2.0
- Cumulative credit completion rate of at least 67% (PCC/OCCC credits will be used in this calculation.)
In this procedure, “consecutive” means back-to-back terms of attendance. Examples:
- Spring and fall (non-attendance summer term)
- Fall and winter
- Fall and spring (non-attendance winter term)
At the end of each academic term the Enrollment Services Manager/Registrar will evaluate the academic progress of degree and certificate seeking students based on the criteria listed above. The Registrar will send an electronic notification, prior to the start of the next term, to each student placed on Academic Probation, Academic Warning or Academic Suspension, outlining any required steps.
Good Academic Standing
Students are considered in good academic standing if they have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 and a cumulative credit completion rate of at least 67%.
Students are considered on academic warning if their cumulative GPA is below 2.0 or their cumulative credit completion rate is below 67%.
Students will be reinstated to good academic standing as soon as their GPA is 2.0 or higher and have a cumulative credit completion rate of at least 67%.
Students on academic warning must submit a re-entry form and meet with an academic advisor to complete an academic plan.
Students are placed on academic probation after a term on academic warning if their cumulative GPA is below 2.0 or their cumulative credit completion rate is below 67%.
Students are placed on academic suspension if their cumulative GPA remains below 2.0, or their credit completion rate is below 67% for a third consecutive term. A hold will be placed on a student’s account preventing them from registering.
Students will have the right to appeal their academic suspension status by submitting an appeal by Thursday of week one of the term. The appeal will be reviewed by the Dean of Students’ Office. Students who do not wish to appeal their academic suspension status and who wish to continue taking classes must complete a re-entry form. If the student fails to submit a completed appeal or re-entry form by Thursday of week one of the term the student will be administratively dropped from all courses.
As part of the appeal or re-entry process, the Dean of Students’ Office may require that the student complete one or more of the following conditions:
- Participate in 10 hours of documented tutoring.
- Limit enrollment during his/her next term or terms of attendance.
- Limit course format (example: online or face to face).
The Dean of Students’ Office has discretionary power to work within these guidelines to implement any conditions if warranted or to extend them as deemed appropriate.
