Academic or Progress 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.

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

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 student should gather documentation of their situation and schedule an appointment to meet with the counselor at the campus or center he/she plans to enroll for assistance completing the Petition for Waiver of Disqualification Period.
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 reedleycollege.edu
- Step 2: Meet with a counselor at the campus or center that you plan to enroll to update your Student Education Plan and for assistance completing the RC Petition for Readmission after Dismissal form.
- Step 3: If your petition is approved, register for the classes on your updated SEP following the instructions provided by your counselor. Due to your probation status, you will not have access to register without having met with a counselor to complete this process.
