Kirkwood Community College Credit Catalog 2011-2012

Academic Progress

Students who achieve and maintain the minimum cumulative grade point average and complete course requirements in the prescribed sequence are considered to be making satisfactory academic progress.

Students who fail to achieve this standard will be placed on academic warning or probation.

Academic Warning

Based upon non-passing grades at midterm of current semester.

Academic Probation

24 or more attempted hours with a GPA of less than 2.0.

The dean of students reviews students’ academic records each semester and will notify students of their warning or probationary status. Students will remain on academic probation until their cumulative GPA is raised to the appropriate level.

If a student is receiving financial aid, the student must also meet satisfactory academic progress requirements as defined by the One Stop office. Those requirements are:

  1. Satisfactorily complete at least 60 percent of the first 29 credit hours and attain a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0.
  2. Satisfactorily complete at least 70 percent of the remaining 30+ credit hours and attain a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0.
