Coronavirus Resources The campus is closed to the public, however services and instruction are still open and available online and by telephone.


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.

Probation Levels

Type:

  • Level 1 Academic Probation (A1): "Level 1" Academic Probation occurs when you have earned a cumulative grade point average (GPA) below a 2.0 for one semester.
  • Level 1 Progress Probation (P1): "Level 1" Progress Probation occurs when you have not completed more than 50% of the courses you attempted for one semester.

Resolution of Level 1 Probation:

Students on Level 1 Academic or Progress Probation are required to complete the State Center Community College District Online Probation Workshop.

FCC Online Probation Workshop  

The State Center Community College District's counselors have developed an Online Probation Workshop intended to help you understand the probation process and identify resources to achieve academic success. The Online Probation Workshop is intended for students on Level 1 probation: academic or progress.

 The SCCCD Online Probation Workshop is a self-enrolled course in CANVAS and includes modules covering:

  1. What is Probation?
  2. How did I end up on Probation?
  3. What’s GPA got to do with it?
  4. What services exist to help me?
  5. What can I do to help myself?

This is a State Center Community College District workshop designed to be completed at your own pace. Although the workshop mirrors a course, you are not dropped, there is no late work, and all progress will be saved as you progress until the end of the semester. After each semester, the online probation workshop will reset and any progress will be erased. Completion of the Online Probation Workshop is required to gain temporary ability to add or drop classes on your own, until you earn a "good" academic standing.

The Online Probation Workshop will be used to clear probation holds for Level 1 probation students at all colleges. Once you complete the workshop, processing will take 24-48 hours, Monday through Friday, which will result in your ability to register (add/drop) on your own. If you are unable to register after 48 hours, please make sure you completed the Online Probation Workshop and/or contact the FCC Counseling Department.

If you are on CPBP, RPAR, or Disqualification, this workshop will provide you with useful information, but will not clear your hold. If you are unsure of your probation status, you can check your academic standing on WebAdvisor.

If there are issues with the Online Probation Workshop, please contact the FCC Counseling Department at 559.442.8226. Once the Online Probation Workshop is completed, you will be able to leave feedback prior to leaving the workshop.

Type:

  • Level 2 Academic Probation (A2): "Level 1" Academic Probation occurs when you have earned a cumulative grade point average (GPA) below a 2.0 for two consecutive semesters.
  • Level 2 Progress Probation (P2): "Level 1" Progress Probation occurs when you have not completed more than 50% of the courses you attempted for two consecutive semesters.

Resolution of Level 2 Probation:

Due to Coronavirus social distancing, we are temporarily allowing your Level 2 (A2/P2) registration hold to be cleared by completing the Online Probation Workshop.

Appealing Your Disqualification

If you went into disqualification status due to extenuating circumstances that occurred during the Fall or Spring term, you should check your student email to confirm your status and what the necessary steps are to complete an appeal. Please note: The email will include the deadline to complete the appeal and the Academic/Progress Disqualification Appeal Form.

Examples of extenuating circumstances: verified cases of accidents, illnesses, death in the immediate family, jury duty, declaration of war, natural calamity, military conscription, family or job displacement, instructor error, or other circumstances beyond your control, which are justifiable in the judgment of the college president or his/her designee.
