Reference: Instruction

Policy: Pearl River Community College will have a written probation/suspension procedure for all institutional and financial aid programs based on a minimum standard of progress.

Procedure: The faculty, administration, and Board of Trustees desires for each student enrolling in Pearl River Community College to be successful in reaching their academic goals. With that in mind, the probation and suspension procedure encourages students to do their very best. If a student fails to meet the academic/financial aid requirements, based on a cumulative grade point average one semester, they will be placed on academic/financial aid probation. If they should fail to remove their deficiency the next semester, they will be placed on academic/financial aid suspension and be required to sit out of school one semester. When they re-enroll in school after being on academic/financial aid suspension, they will be on academic/financial aid probation for that term and must remove their deficiency during that term. The academic/financial aid probation and suspension procedure is as follows: Total Hours Attempted Cumulative Grade for Quality Points Point Average 0 - 24 hours 1.50 GPA 25 - 36 hours 1.75 GPA 37 - and above 2.00 GPA
