Students on academic probation who fail to attain a GPA of 1.500 shall be placed on suspension only after they have attempted twenty-four (24) semester credit hours. Academic suspension normally shall be for one semester unless the students apply for readmission and appeal to the Admissions and Review Committee of the College. The statement “Academic Suspension” shall be placed on the students’ permanent records. Students who have been informed that they are on academic suspension should follow the appeal processes established by the college. Students who have been reinstated from academic suspension must achieve a 2.00 GPA for the semester of their reinstatement and must earn at least a 1.75 GPA in each subsequent semester of attendance. The statement “Subject to Dismissal” shall be placed on the students’ permanent records. Students who have been reinstated from academic suspension will remain subject to dismissal until their cumulative GPA is raised to a minimum of 1.75. Reinstated students may be required to carry less than a normal course load the following semester and are required to consult with their advisor/counselor. Suspended students may be readmitted after termination of the suspension period.
