Standards of Academic Progress

Standards of Academic Progress have been established to help students stay on track and maintain a satisfactory GPA for graduation. The Records Office administers the policy by tracking student progress and notifying the students and their respective departments of the student's status.

All Daytona State College courses, including developmental courses, will be evaluated, even though the “official” college cumulative grade point average (CGPA) does not include developmental class grades. Transfer course grades will not be included in the satisfactory progress determination, but are included in the “official” college CGPA. Academic progress will be monitored at the end of each semester spring, summer, fall.

Students will be sent an email to their FalconMail account approximately 2-3 weeks after the end of each review period if they are placed on Warning, Probation or Suspension.

To remain in good standing and be making satisfactory academic progress, a student must meet the following criteria:

Good Standing

Students are considered to be "in good standing" if they have met or exceeded these criteria.

Warning

When students fail to meet these minimum standards, they will be put on "warning" for the following year/semester. Students on warning will be advised to see an Academic Advisor, who will recommend that the student take advantage of our many support services, including the Academic Support Center, to help improve their performance and fulfill their academic goals.

Students will be taken off "warning" if they have returned to good standing by bringing their CGPA's up to an acceptable level.

Students will continue for a second year/semester on warning if they have successfully completed all courses attempted with a 2.0 GPA during the warning period, but have not yet brought their overall CGPA's up to the required minimum. Students will be placed on probation for the next semester if they have not returned to good standing and have not successfully completed all courses earning a 2.0 for the year/semester while on warning.

Probation

When put on probation the student will be monitored every semester and will be required to consult with an Academic Advisor to develop a mandatory prescriptive program each semester. This program may require the student to take a 50-percent reduction in course load from prior semesters, to repeat certain courses, or to take advantage of student support services such as those offered in the Academic Support Center.

Students will be taken off probation if they have returned to good standing by bringing their CGPA's up to an acceptable level at the end of the semester. Students will continue for a second semester on probation if they have successfully completed all courses and earned a 2.0 during the probation period but have not yet brought their overall CGPA's up to the required minimum.

Students will be placed on "Suspension" for the next semester if they have not returned to good standing and have not successfully completed all courses earning a 2.0 for the semester on probation.

Suspension

Students placed on suspension will be required to stop enrollment for one major semester. They will be allowed to appeal a suspension based upon extraordinary, one-time events during their probationary semester that should not affect academic success in the future. Performance in developmental courses can be considered part of the appeal process.

If a suspended student wishes to return, he/she may submit an appeal to the Records Office requesting reinstatement. The appeal should explain what factors prevented the student from succeeding earlier and how those factors will no longer interfere with the student's progress. If the appeal is granted, the student also is required to meet with the advisor who initially approved the student's probation status to review and once again develop a prescriptive program before the student is allowed to register. The returning student will still be on probation and his/her status will be reviewed again at the end of the semester.
