Academic Suspension

 Fall 2016 Academic Appeal Deadline is
4:00 p.m., Thursday, August 11, 2016.

Did you miss the deadline?

 If you are a Transfer Student and you missed the August 11th deadline, you have a second chance to submit a suspension appeal. Please follow the below instructions carefully. 

  1. Complete and submit ApplyTexas Application for Admission.
  2. Complete, print, and sign SPC Academic Appeal Form.
  3. Pickup an official transcript from each and every college you have previously attended (even if you have only completed one class during the summer or while in high school AND even if TTU has those classes listed on your TTU transcript). The Admissions Committee must be able to look at all your academic course work.  In addition, the Admissions and Records Office must have each and every official college transcript before you will be allowed to register.
  4. Hand deliver the below listed documents to the Admissions and Records Office at the Levelland Campus by 4:00 pm, Thursday August 25, 2016.  NO EXCEPTIONS.
    • SPC Academic Appeal Form
    • All official college transcripts
    • Proof of the meningitis vaccination if you are under 22 years old
  5. You will be notified of the committee's decision by email on Friday, August 26, 2016. 
    • If your appeal is approved, your email will include registration instructions. 
    • If your appeal is denied, you must wait until the summer or fall to register for classes.   

 NOTE:  An academic appeal is not the same as a Financial Aid Appeal.  Please click here for financial aid appeal information.

Academic suspension should not be viewed as punishment. It is based on the philosophy that a student may continue to enroll as long as satisfactory progress toward an educational goal is being made. When progress is not satisfactory, the student is given time to reconsider goals and career plans outside the educational setting.

Students who enroll while on academic probation will be suspended from the succeeding term if they fail to achieve at least a 2.00 GPA in college-level courses for that term.  Students who are placed on academic suspension at the conclusion of the fall term are not eligible for enrollment the following spring semester and vice versa.  However, they may enroll in the summer sessions and attempt to improve their cumulative GPA. 

SPC has a process in place for academic appeals. To initiate the process, complete and submit an SPC Academic Appeal Form by the semester deadline.  (The academic appeal form is interactive and requires free Adobe Reader.  Please wait for the form to load.)
