Advising

At H. Lavity Stoutt Community College, each student shall have an adviser assigned by the Academic Dean. The number of students assigned to a lecturer as advisees should be decided by the Academic Dean in consultation with the Department Head and lecturer after the lecturer’s instructional, research, committee, sponsors, and other loads have been determined. The adviser should in all cases be informed before the student is subjected to major discipline and consulted before registration is changed. At the request of either the lecturer or the student, or for some other reason, the Academic Dean may change the student’s adviser.

Academic Warning, Academic Probation and Academic Suspension

All students are required to meet certain academic standards. Academic warning, academic probation, and academic suspension policies are designed to provide careful supervision of the programme of study and the progress of the student. Failure to meet standards will result in a student being placed on academic warning, academic probation, or academic suspension. The minimum satisfactory grade point average at the College for normal progress and graduation is an overall “C” average (2.00 GPA) on all work taken at the College.

Students will be placed on Academic Warning if they have attempted at least nine semester hours at the College and their cumulative HLSCC grade point average falls below 2.00. Students may be placed on Academic Warning only once during their matriculation at HLSCC. Academic Warning shall not become part of the official transcript.

Students who have been placed on Academic Warning at any time during their matriculation at HLSCC will be subject to Academic Probation if they fail to maintain a 2.00 cumulative grade point average at HLSCC in any subsequent semester of attendance. Academic Probation shall become part of the official transcript.

Students who have been placed on Academic Probation at any time during their matriculation at HLSCC will be subject to Academic Suspension if they fail to maintain a 2.00 cumulative grade point average at HLSCC in any subsequent semester of attendance. Academic Suspension shall become part of the official transcript.

Students who are subject to Academic Suspension will have their academic progress reviewed by the appropriate Academic Dean and will be notified in writing. A student’s suspension may be for a single semester or for a full academic year and may or may not include summer terms at the discretion of the appropriate Academic Dean. A second suspension will be for a minimum of a full academic year. Following academic suspension, the student must apply for readmission to the College. Readmission requires the permission of the appropriate Academic Dean. 21

 

Students Returning to the College Following Academic Suspension
Students returning to the College following academic suspension are automatically placed on Academic Probation until they achieve a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher.
