Academic Standing, Probation, Dismissal and Reinstatement

Policy Number: 1003
Good Academic Standing:

Students are considered to be in good academic standing when their cumulative grade point average is a 2.00 or above. A student's academic standing is computed using accepted transfer and HCC attempted course work. Attempted course work is defined as all courses for which the student enrolled and received a grade of A, B, C, D, or F. Courses for which the student received a grade of W are not counted in attempted course work. Academic standing will be computed at the conclusion of every fall and spring semester. Classes taken during the summer will be included in the fall computation.

Academic Probation:

Upon review of the transcript, degree seeking students will be placed on academic probation when his/her cumulative grade point average (using accepted transfer and HCC attempted course work) falls below the following minimum academic standards:

For students with 12 to 30 credit hours of accepted transfer and HCC attempted course work, the minimum academic standard is a 1.7 cumulative gpa.

For students with 31 or more credit hours of accepted transfer and HCC attempted course work, the minimum academic standard is a 2.0 cumulative gpa.

Academic probation is not meant to be viewed as punitive but is based on the philosophy that a student's continued enrollment at HCC is dependent on making progress toward good academic standing. A student on academic probation will be expected to meet the requirements of any academic improvement plan developed for him or her.

Students will be removed from academic probation if they raise their cumulative grade point average above the minimum academic standards (1.7 for 12 to 30 credit hours of accepted transfer and HCC attempted course work; 2.0 for 31 or more credit hours of accepted transfer and HCC attempted course work) at the conclusion of their next fall or spring term.

Students placed on academic probation who achieve a minimum 2.0 grade point average at the conclusion of their next fall or spring term but do not yet meet the minimum academic standards (1.7 for 12 to 30 credit hours of transfer and HCC attempted course work; 2.0 for 31 or more credit hours of transfer and HCC attempted course work) will remain on academic probation.

Dismissal:

Students on academic probation will be dismissed from Hutchinson Community College at the conclusion of their next fall or spring term unless 1.) They have raised their cumulative grade point average above the minimum academic standards (1.7 for 12 to 30 credit hours of transfer and HCC attempted course work; 2.0 for 31 or more credit hours of transfer and HCC attempted course work) at the conclusion of that term, or 2.) They have achieved a 2.0 grade point average at the conclusion of that term in which case, the student will remain on continuing academic probation.

Students dismissed from HCC will not be allowed to enroll in classes unless they have been reinstated per the reinstatement policy.
