Academic Probation

What does it mean to be on Academic Probation?

All matriculated students at MMC must maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 in order to remain in good academic standing. If you fall below a 2.0 cumulative GPA, you will be placed on academic probation.

What do I have to do to get off probationary status?
To be removed from probationary status, you need to raise your cumulative GPA to a level of at least 2.0 or higher. Failure to do so puts you in danger of dismissal from the college. If you have been placed on academic probation, it’s important that you speak to your faculty advisor and also that you meet with an academic advisor in the Office of Academic Advisement. We can help you identify your academic problems and assist you in finding the support you need to work your way back in good academic standing. 

How many semesters can I be on probation before I must regain good academic standing?
Students have three academic semesters to raise their cumulative GPA to a 2.0 or higher. Failure to earn a 2.0 or higher within the prescribed period of time will result in academic dismissal from the college by the Dean.

How many courses can I register for when I am on academic probation?

Students who are placed on academic probation can only register for 4 courses during the academic semester.
