Academic Probation/Dismissal

What is Academic Probation?

Academic probation can occur if you have less than a cumulative 2.0 GPA when attempting 12 or more units. You will be removed from academic probation status once your overall GPA is a 2.0 or above.

What is Progress Probation?

Progress probation can occur if you attempt 12 or more 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.

  • Suspension of Financial Aid

  • Limited to 12 units per semester

  • Sequential classes with substandard grades must be repeated. For example, if you do not pass English 101, you must repeat this course with grade C or better before you can take English 102 or 103

  • Expenses for repeating classes to raise GPA

  • Graduation and/or transfer delays or complications

You may face dismissal if you are on Academic or Progress Probation for three consecutive semesters.

  • 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.

  • One semester must have passed since the courses were taken

  • Minimum 2.0 GPA in last 12 consecutive units

  • Must have all transcripts from other colleges/universities on file with Admissions & Records
