1. Academic Standing
A student whose cumulative grade point average (GPA) is 2.00 or above is considered in good academic standing. Academic standing is determined by all attempted course work at Cowley College. Attempted course work is defined as any course that has received a grade of A, B, C, D, or F. Courses that have received a grade of W are not included in attempted course work.
2. Academic Probation
3. Academic Improvement Plan
Once placed on academic probation, the student must adhere to each of the following guidelines to continue enrollment in subsequent semesters.
4. Academic Suspension
Any student on academic probation that does not meet each of the criteria under the academic improvement plan outlined above will be suspended from enrollment at Cowley College for one semester (fall or spring). The student will be notified by letter of the suspension. Upon return to Cowley, the student must make academic progress and maintain a semester GPA of 2.00 or higher until the student is in good academic standing. Failure to maintain the semester GPA requirement will result in subsequent academic suspension of one academic year (fall, spring, and summer).
Academically suspended students may appeal in writing to the CAO. All appeals must provide written documentation substantiating the student's reinstatement request.
5. Academic progress standards for recipients of financial aid are outlined in Policy 433.00.
