Level 1 Probation:

For students who are on level 1 probation (academic or progress) they must complete the Online Probation Workshop.

After completing Part 1 and Part 2 (including the student satisfaction survey), your level 1 probation hold will be removed within 48 hours (Monday – Friday).

Level 2 probation:

Students must see a counselor in person if they are on level 2 probation.

If you are in good academic standing and previously attempted a course only ONE time, you are eligible to register for the same course for the 2nd attempt, without approval.

If you are planning to repeat a course for a 3rd or 4th attempt (attempts include “D”, “F”, “W”, “I”, and “NP/NC”), you will need to meet with an Academic Counselor to complete a “Petition to Repeat a Course for Improvement of an Unsatisfactory Grade.”

  • Petitions to repeat a course for a 3rd attempt will be reviewed by an Academic Counselor and if approved, processed by Admissions and Records.
  • Petitions to repeat a course for a 4th attempt must been submitted for review to the Academic Standards Committee.
