Academic Standards of Progress

Dual credit students are held to the same academic standards as other Clarendon College students.



1. Measure of Quality - The records of all students will be reviewed at the end of each semester. Full-time students and part-time students will be considered to be achieving satisfactory progress in "Good Standing" if they earn a cumulative 2.0 grade point average or higher (on a 4.0 scale).

2. Academic Probation - All students who do not achieve satisfactory progress (cumulative minimum G.P.A. of 2.0) will be placed on Academic Probation for the next long semester. Students on Academic Probation are also on "attendance probation" and are expected to attend every class unless hindered by circumstances beyond their control. No unexcused absences or "cuts" are allowed. Such "cuts" may result in immediate suspension from classes. In addition, students on academic probation will be limited to a maximum of 16 semester credit hours.

3. Academic Suspension - All students who are on academic probation but fail to achieve minimum cumulative G.P.A. of 2.0 or higher during the next term will be placed on Academic Suspension (suspended from enrollment for the next long semester). A student may appeal this action through the Admissions Committee if there are extenuating circumstances which might alter the suspension status. After serving a one-semester suspension these students will be eligible to re-enter on academic probation.

4. Continued Academic Probation - Continued probation instead of suspension will be in effect for students who fail to achieve the cumulative 2.0 G.P.A. but in the current semester earn a term GPA of 2.0 or higher G.P.A. When these students attain the cumulative minimum of 2.0 or higher G.P.A., they will be in "Good Standing."

5. Re-entry - Students who have been on suspension may re-enter on academic probation. If they fail to meet the minimum requirements as indicated, they will be placed on academic suspension for one calendar year. After one year the student may be admitted on academic probation. Should the student still not meet the minimum requirements, he/she will be placed on academic suspension again for a calendar year and may be re-admitted only upon approval of the Admissions Committee.
