8 Early Warning System Date
I write to advise that at the end of the spring 200? semester, you were placed on academic probation. Academic probation is based upon your cumulative grade point average (total average of all grades received since you began attending the college). This average can be found on your grade report and is listed under “Cumulative Grade Totals” as GPA. In order to remain in good standing, students must maintain the following overall grade point averages: 10-16 credit total hours attempted cumulative (total) grade point average. 17 credit hours or more cumulative (total) grade point average A registration hold has been placed on your record and you can not register for the upcoming semester. A Counselor is the only person who can remove the hold. The hold will remain in effect until you have met with your Advisor to complete an Early Alert Form (EAF). It is your responsibility to meet with your Advisor as soon as possible to complete the EAF. Once the EAF is completed you are responsible for taking the form to the Counseling Department located in Building ??, Suite ?? to meet with a Counselor and develop an Early Alert Success Plan. If the first initial of your last name begins with the letters A-N please contact Mr. Doe ( 7890). If the first initial of your last name begins with the letters M-Z, please contact Ms. Deer ( ). Only after both the EAF and Early Alert Success Plan are completed will a Counselor remove the hold from your record. Please have your EAF and Early Alert Success Plan completed one week prior to early registration (July ?? and July ??). If you need further assistance please contact your Advisor or a Counselor.  Sincerely, Registrar’s Office Staff (c) CLStuart/HCC
