Counseling : Resources : Academic Probation

Academic Probation

You will be placed on academic probation if you have less than a cumulative 2.0 GPA when attempting 12 or more units.

Progress Probation

You are placed on progress probation if you attempted 12 or more cumulative units and "W", "I" and "NC" units reach or exceed half the cumulative units attempted. You will be removed from progress probation status when the cumulative number of "W", "I" and "NC" units recorded is less than half the cumulative units attempted.

Consequences of Academic Probation

  • You may not be able to register for classes until a probation workshop is attended
  • Suspension of Financial Aid
  • Limit to 12 units per semester
  • Sequential classes with substandard grades must be repeated. For example, if you do not pass English 1A, you must repeat this course before you can take the next English Course
  • Expenses for repeating classes to raise GPA
  • Graduation and/or transfer delays or complications


You may be dismissed for academic or progress probation if you are on probation for more than two consecutive semesters.

Passing Probation

  • Repeat the courses you didn’t pass
  • Fill out the Petition for Repeated Coursework and submit to Admissions & Records. Only courses taken within the Los Angeles Community College District can be used to remove substandard grades. Submit this form even if you have two substandard grades.
  • Petition for Academic Renewal. This will remove substandard grades from your GPA without repeating them. You can remove a maximum 30 units of coursework.

Requirements for Academic Renewal

  • One year must have passed since courses to be removed were taken
  • 2.5 GPA in last 15 units or 2.0 GPA in last 30 units completed
  • Must have all transcripts from other colleges/universities on file with Admissions & Records
  • It is highly recommended that students speak to a counselor prior to completing this process.
