Home ACADEMIC STANDING AND ACADEMIC RENEWAL
In this section
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.
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.
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.

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).

Through this program, students can have a good chance to succeed without previous poor academic performance holding them back.
