Academic Standing: Probation and Suspension

Good Standing

Default standing for students with GPA 2.0 or higher (will be eligible for re-enrollment).

Academic Notice

Freshman students, 30 or fewer credit hours, with a cumulative GPA of 1.7 to 2.0 will be placed on academic notice.

Academic Probation

Any student whose GPA falls below the thresholds designated in the chart below at the end of a given semester is on academic probation.

Credit Hours Overall GPA Requirement
0 through 30 semester credit hours 1.7
Greater than 30 semester credit hours 2.0

Academic Suspension

Any student who is on academic probation and fails to complete the semester with a 2.0 (not to include activity or performance courses) will be suspended from the institution.

Academic Dismissal

Academic dismissal is a second academic suspension. So if a student had been suspended once, and then was re-admitted, and then failed to get a semester GPA of at least a 2.0, that student would be academically suspended a second time. When a student is on academic dismissal, he/she must attend another college and raise his/her overall GPA above a 2.0 before re-applying to TCC again.
