Board of Trustees Policy
In an effort to increase the ability of students to reach their educational goals, the College has established academic milestones to monitor the continuum of progression toward graduation.
To graduate from the College, a student must fulfill all degree or certificate requirements and earn a cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.0 or better. Acceptable progression toward graduation includes maintaining a cumulative GPA as outlined in the Academic Progress Table.
A student who earned a semester GPA less than 2.0 or who received an F, XF or NP grade in college-level courses or a D, F, XF or NP grade in developmental courses will be issued an Academic Warning unless he/she falls into another category as outlined in the Academic Progress Table.
A student who has attempted 12 credits or more will be placed on Academic Probation if the cumulative GPA falls within the range as outlined in the Academic Progress Table.
The College will issue Academic Suspension to a student who has attempted 24 cumulative credits or more and meets the following: has semester GPA less than 2.0; has been on Academic Probation during the previous semester and, at least, two times since entering the College; and has a cumulative GPA within the range as outlined in the Academic Progress Table.
^ Calculation does not include below 100 level courses.
