Appealing Academic Suspension

Students who fail to meet satisfactory academic progress standards during their academic warning period by not earning a term GPA of at least a 2.0 and a term course completion rate of 67% will be suspended for at least two terms. All students placed on academic suspension must appeal to be reinstated.

Appealing due to catastrophic extenuating circumstances
Students who believe they failed to achieve satisfactory academic progress due to extenuating circumstances may file an appeal prior to taking the required two terms off. However, students must provide documentation supporting their claim of the extenuating circumstances which interfered with their ability to be successful in school.

Appealing for reinstatement after serving the required two terms
Students who have served their suspension period must appeal for reinstatement by submitting the required suspension appeal paperwork along with a letter detailing the following:

  • What led to the academic suspension
  • How your life circumstances have changed to support your efforts to be successful in school
  • What you will do differently to ensure academic success if your appeal is granted

The Academic Suspension Appeal packet can be obtained in the Office of Enrollment Services or downloaded online at the following link: Appealing Academic Suspension

Readmission after an approved suspension appeal
Students with an approved academic suspension appeal will be reinstated to the College on a probationary status. Prior to registering for classes, students will be required to meet with a Pathway Advisor to develop an academic plan. Students who fail to meet satisfactory academic progress standards while on academic probation by not earning a term GPA of at least 2.0 and a term course completion rate of 67% will be suspended from the College.
