Academic Standards of Progress

The purpose for establishing standards for satisfactory academic progress is to identify students whose progress toward degree or technical certificate completion is below average in terms of grade-point average. The intent is to provide assistance to those students so that their GPA will reach acceptable graduation standards.

The College’s Standards of Progress provide details regarding minimum standards, intervention strategies or actions to be taken when minimum standards are not met, dismissal action to be taken when satisfactory progress is not restored, and details regarding Dean’s List and Chancellor’s List eligibility.

The College establishes Standards of Progress to maintain academic standards and standards for financial aid eligibility, to provide details regarding intervention strategies to be implemented when minimum standards are not met, and to document appeal rights.
