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