City Coll. of San Francisco, CA. Office of Institutional Research, Planning and Grants.
This document discusses students on academic probation in City College of San Francisco as of Spring 2002. During any given semester, 9-10% of students are on academic probation. A majority of students on academic probation are men. Higher numbers of African American (17%) and Filipino (17%) students were on academic probation rather than Whites (5%). The report found that students between the ages of 18-25 with two basic skills placements are the most likely group to be on academic probation. The most common educational goal for first time probationary students is receiving a two or four year degree. The following are other common characteristics of students on academic probation: (1) a majority (75%) are on probation for the first time; (2) of the students on academic probation, two thirds remained on academic probation until leaving the college; (3) first time probation students who received financial aid are more likely to leave CCSF in clear standing than those who do not receive financial aid; (4) CCSF programs help students get off academic probation; and (5) early identification and support of students on academic probation is the most effective way of helping these students graduate with a clear record.
