Academic Standing Policy 314.06

Johnson County Community College
Series: 300 Students
Section: Academic Policies

This Policy defines how academic standing at JCCC is determined.  For information on “Satisfactory Academic Progress” required to maintain financial aid, refer to the JCCC Financial Aid website. 

Students are subject to this Policy once 12 credit hours have been earned.  A student’s “institutional” grade point average (GPA) includes only coursework taken at JCCC. The “overall” GPA includes coursework taken at JCCC and coursework transferred from other colleges. If either GPA falls below the following parameters, the student will be placed on academic probation:

1.7 GPA with 12-30 GPA credit hours

2.0 GPA with more than 30 GPA credit hours

Academic probation means that the student is being warned of failure to make sufficient academic progress. Students who are on academic probation must earn at least a 2.0 GPA each subsequent semester in order to continue enrollment.  The student will remain on academic probation until both the institutional and overall GPA’s exceed the parameters listed above.  At that point the student will return to academic good standing.

If a student on academic probation earns below a 2.0 for the semester, they will be placed on academic suspension.  The student will not be allowed to enroll at JCCC for one major semester (fall or spring).  If the student incurs a subsequent suspension, they will not be allowed to enroll at JCCC for one calendar year. 

After the suspension period has ended, the student may return to the college on academic probation and must maintain a term GPA of 2.0 each semester until achieving academic good standing.
