A student who fails to attain a minimum 2.0 GPA the next semester in attendance
after being placed on probation is subject to academic dismissal. A student who
is academically dismissed must stay out of college one full semester before petitioning
for readmission. A second academic dismissal could constitute a final dismissal
from the student's current program of study.
Academic Dismissal Waiver Request Procedure
Any student placed on academic dismissal may request a waiver (of the one semester
absence from the college) by petitioning the Vice President of Academic Affairs
or the Vice President of Campus Operations. The waiver request should be in writing
and should include the reason for the decline in GPA and the plan to correct the
problem or situation including steps taken to prevent future grade problems. The
Vice President will consider prior academic history, work responsibilities, time
constraints, etc. in determining whether to grant the waiver request. If the Vice
President decides to grant the waiver request, he/she will notify the student, program
instructor, and the Registrar's Office in writing or via E-Mail.
