Academic Probation (Standards of Progress)

Each student at Randolph Community College is expected to maintain satisfactory progress toward a certificate, diploma, or degree.

At the end of each semester a student’s cumulative and term grade point average is examined.

For the purpose of identifying students on academic probation, grade point averages will be computed upon the basis of all credit hours attempted (for which grades of A, B, C, D, F and WF are received).

Curriculum students who have a cumulative grade point average below a 2.0, will be placed on academic probation.

When a student is placed on probation, he/she is notified in writing. Any student on academic probation must complete all required interventions (e.g., midterm reports) to maintain enrollment. Failure to comply may result in academic suspension.

Curriculum students on probation who fail to make satisfactory improvement in their grade point averages by earning at least a 2.0 term grade point average will be placed on academic suspension. Students on academic suspension are not eligible to register for curriculum courses the following semester. After the duration of suspension is completed, students may request readmission within the parameters established by
the Readmission policy (XII A-6).

Students receiving veterans benefits must adhere to this policy to remain eligible. Students receiving financial aid must adhere to the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) policy published by the Office of Financial Aid and Veterans Affairs. Students must meet their program of study (e.g., Associate Degree Nursing) standards of progress in order to remain in the program (see College Catalog.) Students preparing for the General Educational Development certificate may not exceed 648 hours.
