Academic Standing

Satisfactory academic standing must be maintained during attendance at the college so students may accomplish their educational goals. A system has been designed to encourage and assist students to attain these goals.

  1. Every student must have a minimum of a 2.0 (C) cumulative grade point average to be granted a degree.
  2. Students may progress toward this goal of good academic academic standing if the following standards are met:

Minimum Required Cumulative Grade Point Average

  • 2.0 or better = good academic standing
  • 1.99 or less = academic probation
  • Second semester with a cumulative GPA of 1.99 or less = academic suspension

Academic Probation/Suspension

Students will be placed on academic probation when their cumulative grade point average (GPA) falls below a 2.0 and will be notified by the Office of the Registrar. This will happen shortly after the close of each semester. The purpose of academic probation is to alert students that they haven’t met academic standards, to provide students with the opportunity to assess their academic standing and to offer options to return the student to good academic standing.

The first semester that a student doesn’t meet academic standards, they will be placed on probation. The student will be required to meet with their Student Success Coach to develop a success plan.

Optional resource: Students may choose to use a GPA calculator to help forecast or predict GPA changes.

The second semester a student doesn’t meet academic standards, they will be placed on academic suspension and required to take one semester off from classes at LCCC.

  1. Students may appeal this suspension in writing to the Academic Suspension Appeals Committee for an additional probationary semester.
  2. Students who appeal will be notified of the status of the appeal within 10 business days of receipts of the appeal.
  3. After the one semester break from LCCC, or a successful appeal, an academically suspended student will be able to re-enroll with probationary status by meeting with their Student Success Coach and completing an academic plan designed to help the student meet their personal academic goals.

Once a student’s cumulative GPA is back at or above the 2.0 level, they are considered to be in good academic standing.

Students who wish to appeal their academic suspension can complete the Academic Suspension Appeal form and process. This process requires an appointment with the student's Student Success Coach. Students are encouraged to schedule an appointment using the Navigate app, or can call 307.778.1212 to make an appointment.
