Academic Suspension & Dismissal
Students who do not make satisfactory progress while on academic probation will be placed on suspension and may not be allowed to enroll at the College for one full term. While on academic suspension, Students are strongly encouraged to meet with an Advising Center Advisor to develop a success plan that could assist them in developing job and academic skills.
In order to be eligible to register after the suspension, students must contact the Office of Student Success & Retention before the beginning of any term for which they want to petition for re-enrollment and must meet with a student success advisor in the Department of Student Success and Retention to develop an academic success plan. Students on academic suspension may be limited in the number of credit hours they may register for per semester. Special consideration may be given due to extenuating circumstances. Academic suspension will be posted on the academic transcript. Students re-entering after a term on suspension will be placed back on academic probation, and they must make satisfactory progress during the term in which they return. Failure to do so will result in academic dismissal.
Students who do not make satisfactory progress while on returning-from-suspension status will be placed on academic dismissal and may not be allowed to enroll in the College for a minimum of one calendar year. Students on academic dismissal must complete and submit the Suspension-Dismissal Appeal Packet (see bottom of page) to the Student Success & Retention Advising Center before the beginning of any term for which they want to petition for re-enrollment. If re-enrollment is permitted, the student must meet with a student success advisor in the Student Success &Retention Advising Center before registration. The student may be required to enroll in a specific course or courses and will be limited in the number of credit hours he or she may register for per semester.
A student who is suspended or dismissed at the conclusion of any term may appeal the action through a written petition to the Suspension Appeals Committee in the Department of Student Success & Retention, if the student thinks that the suspension was caused by extenuating circumstances. If the appeal is not approved, full sanctions will apply.
