All students must meet the following criteria in order to maintain eligibility for continued enrollment in a College Transfer Pathway:
- Continue to make progress toward high school graduation
- Maintain a 2.0 GPA in college coursework after completing two courses
Note: A student’s academic GPA does not include any penalization for course withdrawal. However, a student’s financial aid GPA registers a course withdrawal as a grade of ‘F’. Students are encouraged to think carefully before withdrawing from any courses as it may negatively affect their future financial aid availability.
A student must enroll in one College Transfer Pathway program and may not substitute courses in one program for courses in another. Your program of study may be changed with approval of the high school principal or designee and the College’s chief student development administrator. A student may enroll in both a College Transfer Pathway and a Career and Technical Education Pathway with approval of the high school principal or designee and the College’s chief student development administrator.
A high school junior or senior who does not demonstrate college-readiness on an approved assessment or placement test may be provisionally enrolled if the following criteria are met:
- Cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher
- Two completed years of high school English with a grade of C or higher
- Completed high school Algebra II (or higher level math) with a grade of C or higher
- Written approval from the high school principal or designee
- Written approval from the community college president or designee
A Provisional Status student must complete college mathematics (MAT) and college English (ENG) courses within the chosen pathway with a grade of ‘C’ or higher before becoming eligible to register for other courses in the pathway.
