Academic or Progress Probation

State law requires you to maintain satisfactory progress while enrolled at a community college. To maintain satisfactory progress, you must have:

  • Attempted 12 or more units.
  • A grade point average (GPA) of 2.00 or higher. (Plan with GPA Calculator)
  • And/or have completed more than 50% of the units attempted.

If you do not meet satisfactory progress by completing courses and/or achieving grades you will be placed on probationary status.

Probation Information is sent to Your Email Account

All college communication is through your official State Center Community College District email account. Email login instructions. Not regularly checking your district email may cause you to miss critical deadlines.

If you are unsure of your current academic standing, you should call the Counseling Department.
