Probation and Dismissal Letters

 How will I be notified if I go on probation or if I am subject to dismissal?

Approximately 2 weeks after each regular semester (fall and spring) the college emails students, dismissal or probation notifications to their pipeline email account. Dismissed students may still attend Summer I or II.

Appeal Rights:

Students are provided the opportunity to appeal their dismissal status.  Students will have 10 days from the date they are notified of their dismissed status.  Appeals submitted after the deadline will not be considered. Students who did not appeal or who were denied the appeal are welcome to return to college after one or more regular semester(s) not in attendance. Returning students must reapply during the application process for the term they wish to return in.
