Academic Standing

Updated: March 30, 2011

Academic Standing

 

Academic Standing

A student must maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 to maintain good academic standing. A student must have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 to graduate from Rockland Community College.

 

Academic Warning

A student who has enrolled for less than 12 credits and whose cumulative grade point average (GPA) falls below 2.0 is issued an academic warning and receives a letter from the College suggesting possible academic remedies.

 

Academic Probation

Students who have taken 12-29 credits will be placed on Academic Probation if their cumulative GPA falls below 2.0 irrespective of the semester GPA.

 

Attempted Credits

Include all credits except: developmental credit equivalents, physical education credits or courses in which students receive grades of W, NA, AU, X.

Students who have taken 30 or more credits will be placed on academic probation if their cumulative GPA is below 1.5 and their semester GPA is 2.0 or better.

The Office of Academic Intervention will enforce the academic standing policy and will notify and provide mandatory supportive counseling and support to students who are not in good standing to help them improve their academic performance. Students placed on Academic Probation are required to meet with the Coordinator of Academic Intervention in rooms 8247/8223/ 8247A of the Technology Center, 845-574-4357. Students who are on probation will be limited to 14 or fewer credits for the following semester. Students may appeal this credit limitation to the Coordinator of Academic Intervention.

 

Dismissal

Students who have taken 30 or more credits will be academically dismissed if their cumulative GPA is below 1.5 and their semester GPA is less than 2.0. They may appeal in writing for a Waiver of Academic Dismissal to the Coordinator of Academic Intervention. A waiver will be granted only once. Students granted a waiver will remain on Academic Probation. If a waiver is not granted, dismissed students will not be permitted to re-enroll until two semesters have elapsed (not including winter or summer sessions) and only after the Coordinator of Academic Intervention has interviewed them and approved a plan of study.
