Morgan Community College

ACADEMIC STANDING AND ACADEMIC RENEWAL

Morgan Community College strives to enroll students in courses appropriate to their level of academic preparedness and goals as determined by mandatory assessment and academic advising. All MCC students are expected to achieve satisfactory progress as required by the Colorado Community College System (CCCS). Application of this policy is intended to be informational and not punitive. Through the CCCS Academic Standing (AS) Procedures, students will be informed when they are not making satisfactory academic progress.

CCCS Academic Standing Procedure

OVERVIEW:

Recognizing the value of measuring academic progress for all students, the Colorado Community College System (CCCS) has established the following practice for measuring and notifying students of their academic standing (AS). The AS practice is intended to be informational and not punitive. CCCS colleges are encouraged to devise and implement appropriate Academic Alert strategies early in the term to assist students who are experiencing academic difficulties. A student’s academic standing at one college does not impact academic standing at another CCCS college.

APPLICATION:

For students who have completed fewer than 13 credit hours, the college will monitor satisfactory progress through an Academic Alert process. AS applies to all students who have completed 13 or more credits in residence while attending a CCCS college. AS shall be applied consistently and uniformly within each CCCS institution. All colleges will determine AS following the posting of the majority of term grades for each semester. Students with deficient progress statuses will be notified of their status. Suspended students will not be allowed to begin enrollment in the subsequent semester. At the discretion of the CCCS College, AS status may be noted on the advising, official, or unofficial transcript. The AS of a student is specific to the home institution and does not transfer or impact a student’s enrollment at other CCCS colleges.

PRACTICE STANDARDS:

Initial Standing 1

Student has completed fewer than 13 cumulative credit hours with a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) > 2.00 for all classes completed in residence. 2 3

Suspension

In all instances where a student is placed on suspension the following apply.

  • Dropping students already registered is at the discretion of the home college.
  • Students may appeal based on standards and procedures developed by each college.
  • Approval of the student’s appeal may allow, but does not guarantee, that the student will be allowed to register without a break in enrollment.
  • Students returning from a suspension will be on Probation (continuing).

Initial Suspension

CGPA < 2.00 for all classes completed in residence and most recent TGPA < 2.00. Student may not register for the next term following the suspension term.

  • Student may register for the subsequent term after meeting with an academic advisor of the college.

  • Student may register for the term following the two term break in enrollment after meeting with an academic advisor of the college.

Third Suspension

CGPA < 2.00 for all classes completed in residence and last TGPA < 2.00.

  • Student is suspended from the college and may not register for two years or six consecutive semesters.
  1. The inclusion of summer enrollment in academic progress standing varies by college and is documented in college specific procedures.
  2. Current practice excludes developmental grades from the cumulative GPA. Some colleges are recalculating the GPA to include developmental grades.
  3. Withdrawal (W) grades do not count in the academic standing process.

-CCCS Education Services Council Revised June 24, 2009

GPA Computation for Academic Probation and Suspension

Only credit hours earned at Morgan Community College will be used in determining academic probation, suspension, and dismissal. Courses receiving "S", "U", "I", "W", "AU", or "Z", grades will not be considered when determining the probationary status of a student, nor will they be computed into the cumulative GPA (CGPA).

Academic Renewal

Academic Renewal is a program designed to provide students with the opportunity to have prior poor academic standings reconsidered, after a time of absence. Through this program, students can have a good chance to succeed without previous poor academic performance holding them back. In order to qualify for the Academic Renewal program, the following criteria must be met:

  1. 30 hours can be excluded from GPA
  2. Students must be out of school for 2 years before being eligible
  3. Students must be enrolled and have completed at least 6 hours with a 2.0 minimum GPA
  4. Students can only apply for Academic Renewal once and it is not reversible
