Academic and Progress Notice, Dismissal, and Readmission

Consult the appendices at the end of this catalog for full policy and procedures for Academic and Progress Notice, Dismissal, and Readmission practices.

Academic and Progress Notice, dismissal, and readmission policies and procedures are designed to assist students in making progress toward realistic academic, career, and personal goals. Students who choose to enroll are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to realize their full potential. Limitations regarding programs, courses, and unit loads are consistent with the philosophy of providing an opportunity to succeed.

The standards for academic progress may differ for students who receive financial aid and/or VA educational benefits. Consult "Appendix IX" for Satisfactory Academic Progress standards for financial aid recipients, and "Unsatisfactory Progress" for VA benefits recipients.

Continuing and returning students who have been on progress or academic notice for two consecutive terms, or are dismissed, will lose their registration priority.

Students who lose their registration priority due to their academic standing may appeal for reinstatement of that priority if they can demonstrate extenuating circumstances. Extenuating circumstances, for this purpose, are defined as:

  • Accident
  • Illness
  • Other circumstances beyond the control of the student

Extenuating circumstances must be supported by verifiable documentation; examples of such documentation include statements from doctors or hospitals, and police or insurance accident reports. Approval will result in the reinstatement of registration priority.

Students who fail to meet the institution’s academic progress standards in two consecutive primary terms (Fall/Spring) will lose the California College Promise Grant (formerly BOG Fee Waiver). Students who lose their California College Promise Grant (formerly BOGW) eligibility may appeal the loss by meeting with an academic counselor. See Appendix IX - Financial Aid Programs and the college website for more information.
