The Glen Oaks Community College Academic Standing Policy is intended to assist Glen Oaks Community College students to succeed in their studies, to assure that they are realistically able to meet the minimum 2.0 grade point average required for graduation, and to maintain the academic integrity of Glen Oaks Community College. Toward this end, Glen Oaks has adopted the following Academic Standing Policy:

Academic Good StandingAcademic CautionAcademic InterventionAcademic RestrictionAcademic Suspension

Students with a calculated cumulative GPA of 2.0 or above will be considered in Good Standing.

Students with 1-20 attempted credit hours and a calculated cumulative grade point average below 2.0 will be placed on Academic Caution and sent a letter strongly encouraging them to meet with a Success Coach or Academic Advisor to address the situation.

Students with 21-40 attempted credit hours and a calculated cumulative grade point average below 2.0 will be placed on Academic Intervention. Students on Academic Intervention will only be allowed to enroll in three courses (no more than 9 credit hours) unless they meet with a Success Coach or Academic Advisor to develop an Academic Success Plan. Academic Success Plans must be created no later than two weeks prior to the semester in which the students wish to enroll.

Students with 41 or more attempted credit hours and a calculated cumulative grade point average below 2.0 will be placed on Academic Restriction. Students on Academic Restriction will only be allowed to enroll in two courses (no more than 6 credit hours) unless they meet with a Success Coach or Academic Advisor to develop an Academic Success Plan. Success plans must be created no later than two weeks prior to the semester in which the students wish to enroll. Students on Academic Restriction who do not meet with a Success Coach or Academic Advisor to develop an Academic Success Plan and/or whose term grade point average is below a 2.0 will be moved to Academic Suspension.

Students on Academic Suspension will be sent a certified letter notifying them of their academic standing and of the requirement to sit out a minimum of one semester before being allowed to enroll in any future courses at Glen Oaks. Prior to enrolling in future courses, students on Academic Suspension must meet with a Success Coach or Academic Advisor to discuss steps they will take to be academically successful. Students who return after sitting out a semester will only be allowed to enroll in two courses (no more than 6 credit hours) per semester.
