Students dismissed for the first time from Hutchinson Community College (HCC) must wait at least one full fall or spring semester before returning to HCC. The summer semester does not count as a full semester. To be readmitted, students must submit a completed petition to the Office of the Vice President of Student Services. (See procedures below for form and other needed information.)
Students dismissed two or more times from HCC at any time in their academic career must wait at least one full academic year (fall, spring, and summer) before returning to HCC. To be readmitted, students must submit a completed petition to the Office of the Vice President of Student Services. (See procedures below for form and other needed information.)
The Office of the Vice President of Student Services will consider readmission without a semester of nonattendance for employer-mandated enrollment. The student will remain on dismissal until he/she is in good academic standing or follows the normal reinstatement procedure.
All reinstated students are readmitted to HCC on academic probation. Satisfactory academic progress and adherence to reinstatement mandates are required for continued enrollment.
During the first semester of attendance after a period of dismissal, reinstated students are required to adhere to the following mandates:
Satisfactory academic progress according to the Academic Standing, Probation, Dismissal, and Reinstatement Policy;
Maximum enrollment of 12 credit hours in the fall or spring semester;
Maximum enrollment of 6 credit hours in the summer semester;
Enroll in and complete a student success course at HCC;
Self-enrollment is not permitted.
If the student does not complete the required student success course with a C or better, he/she will be placed on academic dismissal immediately and administratively withdrawn from all courses for the semester in which he/she is currently enrolled.
