ARC Academic/Progress Probation and Dismissal

What is Academic/Progress Probation and Dismissal?

Academic Probation

A student is placed on academic probation if the student has attempted at least 12 units and earned a grade point average below 2.0 in all units that were graded. A student on academic probation may be subject to counselor intervention.

Progress Probation

A student who has enrolled in a total of at least 12 semester units is placed on progress probation when the percentage of all units in which a student has enrolled, and for which entries of W, I and NC/NP are recorded, reaches or exceeds 50 percent of all units attempted. A student on progress probation may be subject to counselor intervention.

Unit Limitation

A student on either academic or progress probation may be limited to 12 or fewer units, or to a course load recommended by the student's counselor.

Impact on Registration

Registration will be possible after all qualified new and continuing students in good standing. To appeal and possibly have your priority registration reinstated, please click here.

Impact on BOG Fee Waiver

Beginning with fall 2016 registration, students who are placed on academic or progress probation for two consecutive terms will no longer be eligible to receive a BOG Fee Waiver. Appeal and possibly have your BOG waiver reinstated.

Removal from Probation

A student on academic probation is removed from probation and acquires good standing when the student's cumulative grade point average (GPA) is 2.0 or higher. A student on progress probation is removed from probation and placed in good standing status when the percentage of units with entries of W, I and NC/NP drops below fifty (50) percent of all units attempted. To see how GPA and progress percentage are calculated, see Grades and grade point average (GPA) in While You are Here section of the College Catalog.

Academic Dismissal

A student on academic probation is subject to dismissal when the student earns a cumulative grade point average of less than 2.0 in all graded units in at least three successive semesters.

Progress Dismissal

A student on progress probation is subject to dismissal if the percentage of units in which the student has been enrolled for which entries W, I and NC/NP are recorded reaches or exceeds 50 percent in at least three successive semesters.

Readmission following Dismissal

A dismissed student may petition to the Dean of Counseling and Student Services  for permission to enroll if the student feels that the cause for dismissal is due to circumstances that are now resolved or remedied. The burden of written documentation in support of these circumstances remains with the student. A dismissed student must  attend a readmit workshop and meet with a counselor to initiate a readmit petition.
