Probation and Dismissal
Students enrolled on academic probation are subject to dismissal if they fail to achieve a cumulative grade-point average of 1.750 in each of the two subsequent semesters. However, a student will not be dismissed following any term with a semester grade point average greater than or equal to 2.000 even though the student’s cumulative grade-point average may be less than 1.750.
Probation and dismissal calculations are based on classes taken during Spring 1982 to date.
Probation for Unsatisfactory Citizenship
Each student should be thoroughly familiar with the Associated Student Body Code of Conduct and with regulations of the college. Students attending the college are expected to maintain satisfactory standards of citizenship on campus and in the community. Satisfactory citizenship involves conduct which respects the rights of all individuals, which avoids action disruptive to the ongoing educational program, and which does not violate specific prohibitions outlined in the Education Code.
When it is indicated that citizenship is unsatisfactory, the student may be reprimanded, placed on disciplinary probation, suspended, or expelled, as conditions warrant. Unsatisfactory citizenship includes, among other things, cheating, plagiarism, hazing, and conduct disruptive to the teaching-learning process. In addition, falsification of information for the Admissions Office is basis for dismissal from a class or from the college.
Individuals engaged in destructive activities involving any kind of physical or psychological mistreatment of students are subject to prosecution under the California state law banning hazing and to dismissal from the college.
Penalties on individuals, organizations and institutions are severe.
Students on progress probation are subject to dismissal when the cumulative number of W, I, and NC units reaches or exceeds 50 percent of the cumulative units attempted for two consecutive semesters. However, if a student on progress probation is graded in over half of the units attempted during a semester, the student is not dismissed and is continued on probation.
Students will be notified of their progress dismissal by the online grade reporting system and by the registration system. Students enrolled for the following semester will be withdrawn from the college.
After a lapse of one semester or more, a dismissed student may Petition for Reinstatement on Probationary Status. Readmission of dismissed students is not guaranteed. The student must present positive evidence of a serious intent to succeed and have a realistic goal identified. If the petition is granted, the student will be admitted on progress probation and may have enrollment limitations.
Probation and dismissal are calculated based on classes taken Spring 1982 and after.
