Probation and Dismissal

Good Standing
Students are considered to be a good standing when they achieve a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher and earn grades of “A”, “B”, or “C” in 50% or more in all coursework attempted.
Students who have attempted 12 semester units or more will be placed on academic probation if their grade point average is below 2.0. Students may also be placed on progress probation if they have attempted 12 or more semester units and have an excessive number of “withdraws,” “incompletes”, or no-passes. “Excessive” is defined as 50% or more. Students placed on probation will be notifed through their RCC email account.  All first-time probation students are encouraged to complete an online success workshop offered by the Counseling department.  Students on probation may enrolled for a maximum of 13 units in the Spring and Fall semesters and 7 units in the Summer and Winter terms.
Students who maintain less than a 2.0 G.P.A for two consecutive semesters are subject to academic dismissal. Student shall also be subject to dismissal if the number of “W”, “I”, “NP” or “NC” entries reaches or exceed 50% for two semesters in a row.
