What is Probation?

Your second consecutive quarter with 5 credits or more and less than a 2.00 GPA for the quarter will place you on PROBATION.  This is an important academic "wake-up call" because two quarters below a 2.00 begins to erode your cumulative GPA and may threaten your ability to graduate from Skagit Valley College.

How do I get removed from it?

Enrolling the next quarter in at least 5 credits and earning a 2.00 GPA or higher for the quarter will remove you from PROBATION.

If I am successful in being removed from PROBATION, am I out of academic trouble?

While you may be removed from PROBATION by earning a quarterly GPA of 2.00 or above in 5 or more credits, depending on how low your previous quarters were, you may still have a cumulative college level GPA below a 2.00.  If this is the case, you should still consider yourself in academic jeopardy because of the 2.00 minimum GPA required for graduation.  Following ANY academic progress notifications from the college, you should pay close attention to your cumulative college level GPA each quarter to assure you are making good academic progress toward graduation.

What happens if I don't earn a 2.00 GPA enrolled in 5 or more credits my next quarter?

If you enroll in 5 or more credits and earn less than a 2.00 GPA for the quarter, you will be DROPPED: LOW SCHOLARSHIP.
