Academic Probation

A student whose cumulative GPA is less than 2.0 at the end of a Fall, Spring, or Summer semester for which the student is enrolled will be placed on Academic Probation. A student on Probation is notified of this status through NCTC e-mail, and a notation on the transcript.

A student who is placed on Academic Probation status, and whose cumulative GPA remains below 2.0 at the end of the next Fall, Spring, or Summer semester in which the student is enrolled, but whose term GPA for that Fall, Spring, or Summer is at least 2.0, will remain on Probation status. In this case, that student will not progress to Suspension status as long as he/she is achieving a Fall, Spring, or Summer term GPA of at least 2.0, therefore showing satisfactory academic progress towards improving the cumulative GPA. Students be advised, a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 is required for graduation from NCTC.

A student on Suspension from another college or university (as noted on the student's official transcript), will be required to submit an Appeal to the Admissions office of NCTC in order to be eligible for enrollment. If approved for enrollment, this student will automatically be placed on Academic Probation status at NCTC, and therefore MUST earn a term GPA of at least 2.0 in the first semester at NCTC in order to avoid moving to Suspension status.
