Counselors Are Here To Help Students Achieve Their Academic Goals

Policy Definitions

Counselors advocate for students and address their needs through preventative retention efforts and the development of Individualized Success Plans. In addition, Counselors provide assistance for students on: 

  1. Academic Warning :

    Any student who does not achieve a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher after having attempted at least 15 credits is placed on Academic Warning for one semester beginning when final semester grades are posted. Students on Academic Warning will be directed to complete the Academic Warning component of the Academic Success Online Warning/Probation Workshop (ASOW) and to seek assistance from appropriate services. A registration hold will be placed on the student’s account when the student is placed on Academic Warning, which will be removed upon completion of the relevant ASOW component. Courses the student has enrolled in before being placed on Academic Warning are not affected by being placed on Academic Warning; however, the student will not be able to add or drop courses until the registration hold has been removed. Academic Warning status does not appear on official transcripts. The names of students receiving an Academic Warning will be sent to appropriate personnel to insure follow-up with the student.

    Removal of Academic Warning – A student on Academic Warning who achieves a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher at the end of the next semester of enrollment will be removed from Academic Warning.

A registration hold will be placed on the student’s account when the student is first placed on Academic Probation, which will be removed upon completion of the relevant ASOW component. Courses the student has enrolled in before being placed on Academic Probation are not affected by being placed on Academic Probation; however, the student will not be able to add or drop courses until the registration hold has been removed.
    2. Subsequent Semesters of Academic Probation - A student who maintains a semester GPA of 2.0 or higher during their first and subsequent Academic Probation semester(s), but has a cumulative GPA below 2.0, will continue to be on Academic Probation. Students continuing to be on Academic Probation will be urged to seek assistance from appropriate services and may enroll in CSN classes provided they maintain a semester GPA of 2.0 or higher.

    Removal of Academic Probation – Academic Probation is removed at the end of the semester when the student’s cumulative GPA is raised to 2.0 or higher.

  3. Academic Suspension :

    A student on Academic Probation who fails to achieve a semester GPA of 2.0 or higher will be placed on Academic Suspension. Students who are on Academic Suspension will not be allowed to register for any credit classes for at least one semester, but during the semester may petition to register for the following semester with the Academic Suspension Appeals Committee. Academic Suspension status will appear on the student’s official transcript. Students on Academic Suspension will be urged to seek advice from appropriate Counselors or advising staff based on declared major.

    College Re-admission after Suspension - If the student wants to register for a credit class(es) after one semester of suspension, that student must meet with the appropriate Counselor based on declared major, and petition the Academic Suspension Appeals Committee for approval to register. If approved by the Committee, the student will be limited to a maximum of two classes per semester. The student must petition to register every semester until their cumulative GPA is 2.0 or higher. If the semester GPA is below a 2.0 for two consecutive semesters, the student must sit out another semester before petitioning again. The student must earn a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher to be removed from Academic Suspension status.

  5. Financial Aid Appeal

    An appeal is a process by which a student who is not meeting SAP standards, petitions the school for reconsideration of his eligibility for federal student aid funds. An appeal must explain why the student failed to make satisfactory academic progress and what has changed in the student’s situation that will allow the student to make satisfactory progress by the next evaluation.

    Students wishing to be considered for SAP Probation must submit a SAP appeal form at least 4-6 weeks prior to the start of the following semester after sitting out one semester off or after the semester that the student paid their own charges (tuition and fees).
