Academic Dismissal


Students on Academic Dismissal

1. Satisfactory Academic Standing

Any student who maintains a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) based upon the following scale shall be classified as a student with satisfactory academic standing:
Credits GPA
 Cumulative GPA
 12-28 credits  1.8
 29-47 credits  1.9
 48+  2.0
Cumulative credits are the quality point credits attempted which exclude “W” grades.
The academic standing report will be run at the conclusion of the Fall, Spring and Summer I semesters.

Notes: In cases where a satisfactory academic standing cannot be determined, the standing status will be marked "TBD - To be determined" until certain academic conditions are met .

2. Academic Dismissal

Students who fail to meet the academic requirements after being suspended will then be academically dismissed from the college.

3. Reinstatement after Academic Dismissal

A student who is dismissed has one semester to bring their GPA up to the minimum GPA required as stated above.
Once the student’s academic standing has been changed to reflect dismissal, the student will be notified by the Office of Registration and be instructed to complete the reinstatement application.
The student will need to hand in the completed form to the Center for Student Success in room A118 on the main campus.
The application will be reviewed by members of the academic standing committee or delegated counseling faculty.
Once reviewed, the student will be notified of the committee’s decision.
If the student has been approved for reinstatement, they will need to come in person and speak to an academic counselor who will review the details of the reinstatement.
Reinstated students must earn a minimum TERM GPA of a 2.0 or higher. As long as this is achieved, they will continue with a reinstated conditional standing (even if their overall cumulative GPA is still below the requirement as stated above) which requires an academic counselor’s permission for all registration transactions.
If the student’s overall GPA is not at the minimum as stated above and did not earn a minimum TERM GPA of a 2.0 or higher, the student will be academically dismissed for a second time and returning to BCC may not be permitted for at least one semester.


There is a fee for the reinstatement application.
