MSCC Students, Faculty Benefit from Summer Experience with NASA

nasaWhen Mid-South Community College student Crystal Daniel received notification of acceptance into a National Aeronautics and Space Administration summer program, she almost declined the invitation. Ten weeks later, she was very glad she didn’t.

“At first, I felt overwhelmed by the idea of going so far away from home,” she said. “I also felt that, as an educator in training, I had no place with the ‘geniuses’ at NASA. I actually almost rejected my acceptance into the program.” [Read more...]

Academic Probation / Suspension

Academic Probation

Students whose overall grade point averages (which include developmental and college level courses) fall below 2.00 will be placed on academic probation. In addition, students who attempt the same developmental or required core academic course two times and either fail or withdraw from the course will be placed on academic probation upon re-enrollment—regardless of GPA. A third unsuccessful attempt of the same course will place a student on academic suspension.

Students on academic probation must meet with the Associate Vice President for Enrollment Services or designee to develop a plan of action to improve their grade point averages. Students on academic probation may be restricted to three to six credit hours per semester. Students who need twelve credit hours to receive full financial aid, to meet enrollment criteria for insurance coverage, to receive Arkansas Vocational Rehabilitation funds, or to meet international student visa requirements are cautioned to note this restriction. Students on academic probation from other colleges or universities who transfer to MSCC are also governed by this policy.

Academic probation will continue as long as students maintain a semester GPA of 2.00 or better on all courses taken until their overall grade point average equals 2.00 or better and the probationary status is removed.

 

Academic Suspension

Students will be suspended for a minimum of 15 weeks if

a. they fail to attain a 2.00 semester GPA during a probationary semester or

b. they fail to successfully complete (fail or withdraw from) a required developmental course or core academic course within three attempts.

Students will be referred to tutorial resources in the Learning Success Center or to the Adult Education program to help address their academic problems. When readmitted, they are placed on academic probation, and their enrollment may be restricted to required developmental or core courses which they have not previously completed successfully.

Students may re-enter after the suspension period has lapsed, under condition of academic probation for one semester, with approval of the Associate Vice President for Enrollment Services.

Should a student fail to attain a 2.00 semester average during the semester of re-entry or should a student fail to successfully complete the designated developmental or core course that caused the suspension, a one-year suspension will ensue, followed by similar readmission requirements.

Credit taken at another college or university during the suspension period may not be transferred to MSCC for degree credit or included in the student’s overall grade point average.  Students on academic suspension from other colleges/universities who transfer to MSCC are also governed by this policy.
