Academic Probation

Students are placed on academic probation because they have not met the minimum grade point average required to be a full-time student in good standing. As a result, their academic standing has dropped to "D" probation status.  Students on "D" status are limited to part-time study and may register for a maximum of 11.5 credits. They are also in danger of academic dismissal.

Prior to registration students are encouraged to complete an online Retention Strategy Session (RSS) or see a counselor in the Center for Educational and Retention Counseling (CERC).

The online session will include specific strategies on how to

  1. create an academic plan to raise the GPA;
  2. calculate the GPA;
  3. manage time better;
  4. study more effectively. Also, information about other resources such as career counseling, job placement, psychological counseling, transferring and learning labs will be discussed.

This is a serious matter that requires time for discussing the causes and finding solutions to your situation. Nassau Community College places great importance on helping students achieve success.

Students registered with the Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD) are to meet with their CSD counselor. Call 572.7241 to make an appointment.

To make an appointment with a CERC Counselor go to Nassau Hall (Bldg. M), Room 19, or call 516.572.7141.
