Probation and Dismissal are to be taken seriously within the Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District. If you find yourself in either of these situations, please contact the Counseling Center during the semester to make an appointment to discuss your academic progress. You can click here to find out how to make an appointment with a counselor. The following is an explanation of what Probation and Dismissal means, and how to get reinstated should you find yourself dismissed.
Workshops for our students are usually held at the beginning of each semester. Be sure to check back here for workshop dates and times.
Any student who has attempted a minimum of 12-semester units and whose cumulative
college grade point average falls below 2.0 in courses receiving letter grades for
work attempted at a college within the district shall be placed on academic probation
at the college where the units were attempted.
Any student who has enrolled in a cumulative total of at least 12-semester units at
a college in the district shall be placed on probation when the student's cumulative
units indicate 50 percent or more units of W, I, and/or NP at the college where the
units were attempted.
Removal from Probation
Any student placed on academic probation shall be removed from probation when the cumulative grade point average at the college where the student has been on probation has improved to 2.0.
Any student placed on lack-of-progress probation shall be removed from probation when the cumulative units of W, I, or NP recorded at the college where the student has been on probation are less than 50 percent of the total units attempted.
Any student dismissed from a college within the Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District may not attend any college within the district during the next consecutive semester. The student may, however, attend the next consecutive summer term or spring intersession.
Any student on academic probation whose semester grade point average falls below 2.0
shall be academically dismissed. Any student on academic probation whose semester
grade point average equals or exceeds 2.0 but whose cumulative grade point average
for all units attempted remains below 2.0 shall be continued on probation.
Any student who is on lack-of-progress probation and whose semester work indicated 50 percent or more units of W, I, or NP will be dismissed. Any student on lack-of-progress whose semester work indicated fewer than 50 percent or more units of W, I, or NP will be continued on lack-of-progress probation.
Note: Any student believing to be unjustifiably dismissed and has documentation to support it, may file a petition with the Admissions and Records Office requesting that such dismissal is reconsidered.
