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. 

Academic Probation

References in this Policy to “cumulative credit hours” includes courses taken at any institution that have become a part of the JCCC record. Students who have completed at least 12 cumulative credit hours may be placed on probation if the JCCC cumulative grade point average (GPA) falls below a 2.0. The JCCC cumulative GPA includes only coursework taken at JCCC.

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 term GPA each subsequent spring/fall semester in order to continue enrollment. The student will remain on academic probation until the JCCC cumulative GPA returns to a 2.0 or higher. At that point, the student will return to academic good standing.

Academic Suspension

If a student on academic probation earns below a 2.0 for the semester, the student 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 academic suspension, the student will not be allowed to enroll at JCCC for one calendar year. 

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