Scholastic Probation and Suspension

Islander Transition Center

Every semester in college is always an adjustment. We want to encourage you to continue your education.

What is scholastic probation?
An undergraduate student whose cumulative grade point average (G.P.A.) at TAMU-CC falls below a 2.0 on academic work is placed on scholastic probation. A student is removed from scholastic probation after completing a semester or summer term at TAMU-CC during which a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or greater is achieved.

What is academic suspension?
A student who is on scholastic probation and who fails to make a minimum grade point average (G.P.A.) of 2.0 for any semester or term is placed on academic suspension. A student suspended for the first time may not enroll at TAMU-CC for the upcoming long semester (Fall or Spring), and any intervening summer session. A student suspended for the second time will be suspended from enrollment for one year.

Example: A student on scholastic probation enrolls for the Fall semester. That student must maintain a 2.0 G.P.A. within the Fall semester to continue. Failure to maintain a 2.0 G.P.A. within the Fall semester will result in being placed on academic suspension, and the student will not be eligible to enroll the following semester.

How do I raise my grade point average (G.P.A.)?
Repeat unsuccessful courses the following semester at TAMU-CC. Do not repeat unsuccessful courses elsewhere. Probation status is based on TAMU-CC hours only, and completing a course successfully elsewhere will not replace the grade received on courses failed at TAMU-CC.
