Probation means you are not meeting the standards set by the college. To be in good standing, students must maintain a 2.0 ("C") average overall and complete more than half of the units that appear on their transcript. Students who continue on probation may end up losing financial aid eligibility and/or registration priority, and ultimately they may be dismissed from the college. Probation can also affect a student's eligibility for living in the dorms and for participation in intercollegiate athletics. It is important to note that financial aid probation is defined differently and follows different rules. Please check the financial aid office for those policies.
