Probation and Dismissal

The policies of probation and dismissal are applicable to day or evening, full-time or part-time students. Academic status is based on all coursework taken at the three district colleges. Students with an academic status of probation or dismissal will be limited to a maximum of 13 units during fall/spring semesters. Probationary students may enroll in no more than seven units during intersessions. Dismissal students will be limited to 5 units during intersession.

  • Dismissal - Students failing to maintain satisfactory academic progress may be subject to academic and/or progress dismissal.
