Probation

Both the quality of a student's academic performance, as measured by the grade point average (GPA), and the student's progress, as measured by comparing the number of units completed with the number of units attempted, are monitored to determine a student's status. A student who is below the minimum standard will be placed on probation for academic or progress performance.

You may check your current student status on Web Advisor under the Registration Eligibility Status link WebAdvisor Login Page.

Academic/Progress Dismissal (AD/PD)
A student shall be dismissed, exclusive of summer session, if, during each of three consecutive semesters, the student's performance falls under one or the combination of the following two conditions:
a. The student's cumulative (GPA) is 1.99 or less
b. The percentage of units in which the student has been enrolled for which entries
of "W", "I", "NP", and "NC" are recorded reaches or exceeds fifty percent (50%) of all units
attempted.

A student will be required to sit out of all State Center Community College District Colleges and Centers for ONE semester as a result of their first dismissal, TWO semesters for a second dismissal, and two years for a third dismissal.

Petition for Waiver of Disqualification Period (AD/PD)

Following a successful petition, a student dismissed after academic or progress due to verified extenuating circumstances may be readmitted, and the mandatory dismissal period of one semester shall be waived. The petition form is attached below:

Petition for Waiver of Disqualified Period

Once the petition is completed and third party documentation is provided for extenuating circumstances, the student needs to meet with the counselor at the campus or center he/she plans to enroll.

Exceptions

A student on academic probation may not be dismissed after the third consecutive semester of unsatisfactory work (cumulative GPA below 2.0) if, during that third semester and every subsequent semester, the student maintains a 2.0 GPA until the cumulative GPA is above the probationary level. A student on progress probation will not be dismissed after the third semester of unsatisfactory work if, during that third semester and every subsequent semester, the student completes more than 50% of the attempted units until the percentage of units successfully completed is above the probationary level.

Readmission Following Academic or Progress Dismissal (AD/PD)

Upon sitting out the designated time frame dependent on level of dismissal, a dismissed student who wishes to be readmitted must submit the appropriate petition and participate in the readmission process beginning with a meeting with a counselor at the campus where the student plans to enroll. If the student's petition for readmission is approved, unit limitations and course selections will be determined for the readmitted student by the counselor.

Step 1: Readmission into college - If you have sat out two full semesters or more, you must
reapply, by completing a SCCCD admissions application online at www.reedleycollege.edu

Step 2: Complete the RC Petition for Readmission After Dismissal form and then meet with a
counselor at the campus or center you plan to enroll to discuss course selection and
unit load.

Step 3: If your petition is approved, register for classes in person at the Admissions & Records
Office. You will not have access to Web Advisor due to your probation status.
