Probation and Dismissal

Good Standing

Students are considered to be a good standing when they achieve a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher and earn grades of "A", "B", or "C" in 50% or more in all coursework attempted.



Students who have attempted 12 semester units or more will be placed on academic probation if their grade point average is below 2.0. Students may also be placed on progress probation if they have attempted 12 or more semester units and have an excessive number of "withdraws," "incompletes," or no-passes. "Excessive" is defined as 50% or more. Students placed on probation will be notifed through their student email account.

All first-time probation students are encouraged to complete a success workshop offered by Counseling Services. The workshop is available online or in person in fall and spring semesters. Students on probation may enrolled for a maximum of 13 units in the spring and fall semesters and 7 units in the summer and winter terms.
