Survey of the Results of the College Probation-Retention-Disqualification Policy.
Fugle, James B., Jr.
This description of the probation-retention-disqualification policy at Santa Monica City College (Calif.) may provide guidelines for other institutions. A student may be placed on probation if he (1) has a GPA below 2.0 in all college units attempted, (2) is a transfer while on probation from or disqualified by another school, or (3) is readmitted after disqualification by SMCC. He may be removed from probation by improving his GPA, or by changing other applicable conditions. A probationary student can be disqualified if (1) with less than 60 units attempted, he has a deficiency of 15 or more grade points, (2) with 60-85 units attempted, he has a deficiency of 10 or more grade points, or (3) with more than 85 units attempted, he has a deficiency of one or more grade points. He may remain on probation if, with eight or more units attempted, he earns two or more grade points above 2.0 each semester, or if, with less than eight units attempted, he maintains a 2.0 average each semester. If dismissed for poor scholarship, he may ask for readmission after a lapse of one semester. His chance of readmission will be improved if (1) he has completed at least six months' military service, (2) he has worked in an area related to his SMCC studies, (3) he has satisfactorily completed studies at another school, (4) he has had professional counseling (vocational and educational) for a planned program at SMCC, or (5) his environmental conditions (financial, social, etc.) have improved enough to justify reconsideration.
