Academic Probation and Dismissal are to be taken seriously. If you find yourself in either of these academic standings, you will be notified through Los Rios Gmail. You can view your academic standing on your unofficial transcript after grades are posted each semester. See eServices to review your transcript.

Academic Probation/Progress Probation

Academic Probation: A student who has attempted at least 12 semester units and whose cumulative GPA falls below a 2.0 is placed on Academic Probation 1. If you are on Academic Probation for a consecutive semester, you will be on Academic Probation 2.

Progress Probation: A student who has enrolled in at least 12 semester units is placed on Progress Probation when W, I, and NP grades are recorded in one half or more of all units in which a student has enrolled. If you are on Progress Probation for a consecutive semester, you will be on Progress Probation 2.

Return to Good Standing: A student placed on Academic Probation will return to Good Standing when the cumulative GPA has improved to a 2.0. A student placed on Progress Probation will return to Good Standing when the cumulative units of W, I, or NP are less than 50% of the total units attempted.

Loss of Priority Registration/Eligibility

Students who are placed on Probation for two consecutive terms or Dismissal will lose priority as a continuing student and will register during open enrollment (later than priority 1 and 2).

Students who are placed on Probation for two consecutive terms or Dismissal may lose their California College Promise Grant eligibility.

Students who have a term GPA of 2.0 and have completed more than half the attempted units for the term will be able to appeal their loss of priority or California College Promise Grant.

Dismissal

A student on Academic or Progress Probation for three consecutive semesters will go into Dismissal and a hold is automatically placed on your registration.
