ACADEMIC STANDING CODES Good standing, may take up to 17 credits or equivalent. Academic Warning, limited to 14 credits because of low GPA. Academic Probation due to low GPA, limited to 11.5 credits. Refer students to Center for Educational and Retention Counseling. J = Academic Dismissal. May not attend Nassau C.C. without being Readmitted. Refer students Dean of Students. K = Academic Dismissal / Remedial: Student did not pass a remedial class after third attempt or student failed all three BEP courses after first attempt. Minimum Grade Point Average Required to Maintain Good Academic Standing. A – 1.7 with 1-14 credits attempted. A – 1.8 with 15-29 credits attempted. A – 1.9 with 30-47 credits attempted. A – 2.0 with 48 or more credits attempted.
Academic Warning, Academic Probation and Credit Limits A student whose cumulative average falls below these minima for the first time will be on ACADEMIC WARNING limited to 14 credits (or equivalent where preparatory courses are concerned) for the next semester. If, at the end of the next semester, the student’s cumulative average still falls below these minima, then the student concerned shall be placed on ACADEMIC PROBATION restricted to part-time (fewer than 12 credits) attendance.
Academic Progress System NCC developed an Academic Progress System where faculty inform students of their status in the class. Usually a message is sent if the student is doing poorly or needs improvement in order to successfully complete the class. If your professor(s) sent you an academic progress message, you will receive the following message on your NCC email: “You have received an academic progress reportfor one or more of your courses. Please login to MyNCC, click on the Student tab, and click on View Academic Progress Messages to view your early warning messages. Thank You, MyNCC Support”
How did I get on Academic Warning? Not enough time to study I don’t know how to study. I work more than 20 hours a week. I don’t know what I want to major in. I have difficulty balancing work, study and home life I had an incomplete grade that turned to “F”. I left school without withdrawing from my courses so I received a UW grade.
1.UW-Unofficial Withdrawal This grade, for credit classes, carries the same academic value as a failing grade and will be given to a student that attended class, but for whatever reason stopped attending during the semester. Students must withdraw from the class by the published deadline. 2.UU-Unofficial Withdrawal This grade, for non-credit class (remedial), does not affect the student’s grade point average but does count toward the number of attempts in the remedial program. 3.NA-Never Attended This grade is issued for a credit class and does not affect the student’s grade point average, however students will be liable for tuition and fees for the class if not dropped prior to the start of the semester and financial aid will be affected because of non- attendance. New Grading Policies

Meet with a counselor from Center for Educational and Retention Counseling (CERC) Attend a Study Skills Workshop offered by CERC Speak with your professors Get a tutor for difficult courses Go to the Learning Lab associated with your courses Withdraw from a difficult course or one that you have not been attending.

Self-Assessment There are several questions you need to answer : o What do I have an interest in? o What subjects do I enjoy? o What am I good at? What are my strengths? o What are some of the careers I thought about? Our Career Counseling Center has Focus 2 an online career exploration program that can assist you in answering the questions above. They also offer the Self Directed Search inventory which is another assessment tool.
Research There are several websites that will help you research the field of careers: The Occupational Outlook Handbook, www.bls.gov/oco/ www.bls.gov/oco/ The Career Zone, www.nycareerzone.org/ All offer information on different careers and what each is about. It is important to understand what any career looks like on a day to day basis, as well the level of education or training required for the job.
Networking It is always important to talk to other people about some of your ideas about careers. Utilizing your family and friends who are in the careers you are interested in is called networking. You may have connections to someone who is doing what you want to do, or they know someone who is doing what you want to do.
Your Associates Degree You need 66-68 credits for your Associates Degree. You should be aware of all the semesters that courses are offered. We have Fall (15 weeks), Winter( one course, three weeks, 5 days a week) Spring (15 weeks), Summer Session I and II( Each session is 4 weeks and 4 days a week, M-Th). Summer Session III(one class, three weeks, M-F)
Areas of Study Nassau Community College has many areas of study for you to consider. The College Catalog is online at www.ncc.edu. Click on Programs and Courses. This will lead you to all of our areas of study and the courses required for each.www.ncc.edu As you consider different areas of study it is important to look at the course work required. If you log in to your Banner account and use the Degree Evaluation, you can look at your current major. Also if you want to look at another major, click on the “what if analysis” to view another program and the courses required for that program. It’s a great feature! Does the coursework required reflect my areas of interest and my academic strengths? Ex) Am I good at Math? Science? English? It is also important to access the type of skills I will develop in this area of study, can I be creative? Work with my hands? Solve problems? Learn about human behavior? Finding the right fit is important. The right fit is a combination of the interest, strengths, and skills that all fall into one area of study or major. It’s ok not to know when you start college. You have the ability to explore different subjects each semester. It’s a great way to get a taste of different programs and find one that you are interested in.
How many credits do I take? This is probably one of the most important questions you need to answer. The choice of how many credits you take in any semester can certainly influence your academic success or failure. A full time load is considered 12 -17 credits. Anything less than 12 credits is considered part-time. Financial Aid Family Obligations Job Hours Time available to study Personal Finances
