If you have a cumulative grade point average of less than 2.0 at the end of any term, either semester or summer session, you shall be placed on probation during the following term of attendance and shall remain on probation until your cumulative grade point average is 2.0 or higher (in accordance with provisions of Title 5).

 

Progress Probation

If you have enrolled in a total of at least 12 semester units as indicated on the total academic record district-wide, you shall be placed on progress probation when the percentage of W, I, and NC’s recorded reaches at least 50% of all grades recorded. You will remain on progress probation until your percentage of W, I, and NC grades falls below 50% of all grades recorded.

The Office of the Vice President of Student Services will notify you by mail when the college has placed you on academic and/or progress probation.

 

Probation Procedures

After you receive the notification in the mail that you are on probation, you must then meet with a counselor to gain clearance for registration and to discuss strategies for improving your academic performance, including possible reduction of your study load.
