Academic Suspension

Academic Suspension I

Students are placed on Suspension I after serving one semester on Probation II with a cumulative and semester grade point average less than a 2.0/4.0. When final grades are posted after the Probation II semester, a student will be withdrawn from current semester courses and issued a refund. The Suspension I status will be in effect for one fall or spring semester following Probation II. A registration restriction will remain on the student's record until the cumulative grade point average reaches a 2.0 or higher. Students will be restored to good standing once their cumulative grade point average is a 2.0 or higher.

Academic Suspension II

Students are placed on Suspension II after serving one semester on Suspension I with a cumulative and semester grade point average less than a 2.0/4.0. When final grades are posted after the Suspension I semester, a student will be withdrawn from current semester courses and issued a refund. The Suspension II status will be in effect for 12 consecutive months. A registration restriction will remain on the student's record until the cumulative grade point average reaches a 2.0 or higher. Students will be restored to good standing once their cumulative grade point average is a 2.0 or higher.

Academic Reinstatement

Students will be considered for Academic Reinstatement following their reinstatement from Suspension I and/or II statuses. Once reinstated, course selection will be restricted and no future registration can occur until reinstatement has been approved. In the semesters following academic reinstatement, if the semester grade point average is 2.00 or above, a student will be placed on continued suspension status until the cumulative grade point average meets the minimum of 2.00. If the semester GPA is below 2.00 and the cumulative GPA is below 2.00, the student again will be suspended. Academic warning, probation and suspension notations are recorded on the student's academic record, but not printed on the official transcript.

To pursue an appeal to request reinstatement from an Academic Suspension, please complete and sign both of the following forms, and return via email to SOAP@cod.edu. Please note a decision of approval is not guaranteed.
