Academic Dismissal

(minimum of 24 credit hours attempted)

Any student who does not maintain at least a 2.0 average for the semester following reinstatement to the College, after being on Academic Suspension, will be academically dismissed from that curriculum. A student who has been placed on Academic Suspension and who achieved a 2.0 grade point average for the semester following reinstatement must maintain at least a 1.5 grade point average in each subsequent semester of attendance. The student remains on probation until the overall grade point average reaches a minimum of 1.5. Failure to obtain a 1.5 grade point average in each subsequent semester will result in Academic Dismissal.

Academic Dismissal from the College is permanent. A student whose circumstances have changed significantly following a substantial period of time may make a written request for reinstatement to the Dean of Student Services. Requests for reinstatement are considered on an individual basis by an ad-hoc Admissions Committee that is convened by the Dean of Student Services. The student will be notified in writing of the Admissions Committee’s decision. A student who wishes to appeal the Admissions Committee’s decision may do so in writing to the Vice President of Instruction and Student Services within 10 days of notification of the Admission Committee’s decision. The decision of the Vice President is final and may not be appealed further.

After readmission, the student must maintain a 2.0 grade point average in each semester following reinstatement or permanent dismissal from the College with no further appeal will result.
