Academic Probation

Acceptable scholastic performance, also known as Good Standing, is based on grade point average (GPA). Semester GPA and GPA (1) determine academic standing and are computed at the end of each semester. A student is placed on academic probation when their GPA is below 2.0.

Spring 2020 Probation Registration

Students on academic probation must register and drop courses in person with an academic advisor. Current students on Probation 1, 2, 3 must be registered before Friday, Jan. 10, 2020. There is no late registration.

Winter term course registration is approved on a case by case basis for students who are on academic probation. Meet with an academic advisor for further information.

Students will be seen on a first come, first served basis by their pathway advisor.

See the Advisors’ Directory for time and location of your advising area here at Richland College.

Transfer-In Students

Students transferring to RLC and have indicated that they are on Suspension or Probation at their previous college/university, will enroll under the academic standing of Probation 1. All RLC academic standing policies apply and all transcripts from your previous institutions must be submitted to Admissions and Student Records and are required before registering for credit courses.

Academic Suspension / Dismissal / Indefinite Dismissal

Students on Suspension are ineligible to enroll in credit courses in the next subsequent semester or session of enrollment (Fall Semester, Spring Semester or Summer Session). Students on Dismissal/Indefinite Academic Dismissal are not eligible to enroll for 12 months and are only eligible to enroll after that period upon the recommendation of the chief student affairs officer or designee. However, you may still meet with an advisor to discuss future educational planning after the registration period ends.

Students returning from Academic Suspension/Dismissal/Indefinite Dismissal will be restricted in course selection and total number of credit hours.
