Academic Standing


Lower Columbia College has established academic standards that all students must follow. Students must attain a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or better to earn degrees and certificates. Students who do not maintain good academic standing will be alerted of their quarterly and cumulative GPA, procedures to obtain assistance improving their academic status and if suspended, procedures to follow for academic reinstatement. Quarterly academic warning and probation letters are sent to students via the ctcLink message center within two weeks of grades being posted.

Levels of Academic Standing

  1. Academic Warning - Any student who receives a quarterly GPA below 2.0 for any quarter will be placed on Academic Warning.
  2. Academic Probation - Any student with two consecutive quarterly GPAs below 2.0 and/or whose cumulative GPA is below 2.0 for two quarters will be on Academic Probation and may be required by the college to enroll in College Success or other courses as determined by the college to assist with academic success.
  3. Academic Continued Probation - Any student with three consecutive quarterly GPAs below 2.0 and/or whose cumulative GPA is below 2.0 for three quarters will be on Academic Continued Probation and may be required by the college to enroll in College Success or other courses as determined by the college to assist with academic success.
  4. Academic Suspension - Any student with four or more consecutive quarterly GPAs below 2.0 and/or whose cumulative GPA is below 2.0 for four quarters is subject to Academic Suspension for two academic quarters. Students who are academically suspended must petition for reinstatement to the Office of the Vice President of Student Services at least six weeks prior to the quarter the student would like to reenter the college. The petition for academic reinstatement can be found at lowercolumbia.edu/students/forms
