What is Probation? Probation is defined as unsatisfactory progress in one or both of the following two areas: Falling below minimum standards will place you on probation Academic - Cumulative Grade Point Average falls below 2.0 Progress - Cumulative units completed compared against units attempted is 50% or less
Consequences of Probation Registration holds Mandated probation counseling Financial aid restrictions Course selection restrictions Ineligible for graduation and transfer Semester units limited Dismissal from districts colleges & centers
Academic Probation A student who has attempted at least 12 semester units as shown by the official academic record shall be placed on academic probation if the student has earned a grade point average below 2.0 in all units which were graded on the basis of the grading system.
Reading the Transcripts GPU= Grade Point Units UEAR= Units Earned GPT=Grade Points SEM GPA =Semester Grade Points CUM GPA=Total Grade Points
Progress Probation A student who has enrolled in a total of at least 12 semester units as shown by the official academic record shall be placed on progress probation when the percentage of all units in which the student has enrolled and for which entries of W, I, NP and NC are recorded reaches or exceeds fifty percent (50 percent).
Progress Probation The following acronyms are used for Progress Probation. (WINC) W Withdraw I Incomplete NCNo Credit NPNo Pass
How to Figure Your Probation Status for Progress Probation Use Cumulative Totals on transcript Add the Grade Point Units (GPU) and your W, I, NC, NP (WINC) and divide the total by 2. If total is equal to or larger than (GPU) you are on Progress Probation
CUM WINC = 16 + CUM GPU = 12 2 ( ) = 28 2 = is greater than 12 CUM GPU This student is dropping more units than completing and is on Progress Probation Progress Probation Example
Academic & Progress Dismissal Disqualified after three consecutive semesters of a Cumulative G.P.A. less than 1.75 after attempting 12 or more GPU units. Or you have not completed 50% of the units attempted in three semesters Excluding summer sessions
