Academic Suspension

For Full-Time Students
  • At the end of each semester, first time, first year students with a semester GPA of less than 1.0 and all other students with a semester GPA of less than 1.3 may be placed on Academic Suspension for a minimum of one semester.
  • At the end of each semester, students who have earned fewer than twelve credits (placed on Academic Warning) for each of two consecutive semesters may be placed on Academic Suspension for a minimum of one semester.
  • At the end of each semester, students who have been placed on Academic Probation more than once within a four semester timeframe during their academic career at the College may be placed on Academic Suspension for a minimum of one semester.
For Part-Time Students
  • At the end of each semester, matriculated students with a semester GPA of less than 1.3 may be suspended from the college for a minimum of one semester.
  • At the end of each semester, students who have been placed on Academic Probation more than once in their academic career at the College may be placed on Academic Suspension for a minimum of one semester.

Following their first Academic Suspension, students wishing to return to the College are not eligible to do so until at least a period of one full semester has elapsed. Returning to the College requires a reapplication of admission to the Office of the Registrar. Students must provide evidence of their ability to succeed (for example, proof of progress at another institution) to be considered for readmission.

In the event of a second suspension, students may reapply to the Office of the Registrar for return to the College after a period of at least one academic year has elapsed. Students must provide evidence of their ability to succeed at the College to be considered for readmission.

Readmission following an Academic Suspension is never guaranteed; applications for readmission are reviewed by the Vice-President for Enrollment Management, who consults with a Committee convened for this purpose.

Appealing Academic Review Committee Decision
Students may write a letter of appeal to the Vice President for Academic Affairs. Guidelines and deadlines for an appeal are included in the letter of suspension. The Vice President consults with staff and faculty in Student Affairs, Academic Affairs, and Enrollment Management when considering appeals. The decision of the Vice President for Academic Affairs will be final.
