Students must receive a minimum quarterly grade point average of 2.0 to maintain satisfactory academic progress. Students must also satisfy any additional grade point requirements specified in the curriculum guide for the degree being sought.
Students who fall below minimum academic standards will be notified by a letter sent to their last known address. Students whose quarterly grade point average falls below 2.0 in traditionally graded courses will be sent a first alert. Those who continue with low grades for a second consecutive quarter will be placed on academic warning; continuation to the next term is subject to Counselor approval. A third consecutive quarter with a grade point average below 2.0 will result in a academic probation; future registration will be cancelled if Counselor approval to continue enrollment has not been received. A fourth consecutive quarter with a grade point average below 2.0 results in academic dismissal from Everett Community College. Re-admission is subject to approval by the Re-admission Committee and the Dean of Student Development, following an absence of at least four quarters.
Students are expected to make satisfactory progress toward completion of their educational program. An excessive number of I, V, W, and U grades received in courses attempted will be cause for review of the student’s academic record and may result in an alert, academic warning, probation or dismissal.
Specific guidelines for the low academic, warning, probation and dismissal process are available from the Counseling & Student Success.
