A student’s academic status is calculated each term (fall, spring and summer) based upon previous academic status, term grade point average (GPA) and cumulative grade point average. All credit courses taken at San Jacinto College including college preparatory courses are included in the calculation except that only the highest grades achieved in repeated courses are counted. No course work from other institutions is included in the San Jacinto College GPA.
Academic Suspension Period
Suspended students must sit out one long term (fall, spring or the entire summer session). After the student has sat out the suspension period, he or she must request re-admission and obtain advising with the Center for Advising, Career & Transfer before being eligible to enroll again. Students placed on academic suspension will be notified by mail or email that they have been suspended. Students may appeal their suspension as described below when extenuating circumstances exist.
Re-enrollment After Suspension
Once the term of suspension has elapsed, students may apply for readmission. The academic status of Suspension will prevent registration until mandatory advising has been completed with the Center for Advising, Career & Transfer. Students enrolling after their suspension period on academic probation, who achieve an overall institution GPA of 2.0 or greater, will be considered in Good Standing. Students who achieve a term GPA of 2.0 or better but who do not raise their overall institution GPA of 2.0 or better will continue on academic probation.
Transfer Students on Probation or Suspension
Students admitted from other institutions on academic probation or academic suspension will be treated the same as students from San Jacinto College on probation or suspension as described above. Students who fail to report academic status which is less than Good Standing to gain admission may be immediately withdrawn without any refund of tuition and fees paid.
