1. Academic Probation: Any student who has attempted a minimum of 12 semester units at Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District (GCCCD) and whose cumulative grade point average falls below a 2.0 in courses receiving letter grades shall be placed on academic probation.
2. Lack‑of‑Progress Probation: Any student who has enrolled in a total of at least 12 semester units at GCCCD shall be placed on lack‑of‑progress probation when the student’s cumulative units indicate 50 percent or more units of “W,” “I” or “NP.”
3. Removal from Probation:
a. Any student on academic probation shall be removed from probation when the cumulative GPA at GCCCD has improved to 2.0.
b. Any student on lack‑of‑progress probation shall be removed from probation when the cumulative units of “W,” “I” or “NP” recorded at GCCCD are less than 50 percent of the total units attempted.
Any student dismissed from a college within GCCCD may not attend any college within the District during the next consecutive semester. The student may, however, attend the summer session.
1. Academic Dismissal: Any student on academic probation whose semester GPA falls below 2.0 shall be academically dismissed. Any student on academic probation whose semester GPA equals or exceeds 2.0, but whose cumulative GPA for all units attempted remains below 2.0, shall be continued on probation.
2. Lack‑of‑Progress Dismissal: Any student who is on lack‑of‑progress probation and whose semester work indicates 50 percent or more units of “W,” “I” or “NP” will be dismissed. Any student on lack‑of‑progress probation whose semester work indicates fewer than 50 percent units of “W,” “I” or “NP,” but whose cumulative records show 50 percent or more units of “W,” “I” or “NP,” will be continued on lack‑of‑progress probation.
If at the end of the third consecutive semester in which the student earned a cumulative GPA of less than 2.0 or whose cumulative records show the percentage of units is W, I or NP is greater than 50%, the student will be dismissed. A notice that the student is dismissed will be sent to the student informing him/her that he/she is dismissed.
After being dismissed, a student may not attend either college in the district for one semester. The student may attend summer school. Any student believing to be unjustifiably dismissed may file a petition with documentation to the Admissions and Records Office requesting that such dismissal be reconsidered. Students are encouraged to see a counselor for assistance with petitions. To facilitate the official adding of courses prior to the published add deadline, a petition for reinstatement should be submitted no later than ten working days prior to the published add deadline.
