Academic probation and Academic Dismissal are part of a process that could have serious consequences.  Dismissal for scholastic reasons can severely restrict your choices of universities and programs in the future.  If you are on financial aid, veteran’s assistance, or a family health insurance policy, you run the risk of losing the assistance unless you take steps to improve your academic standing. 

Everyone at Northwest Vista College has a sincere desire to help you succeed. We encourage you to review the information and resources on these pages to gain a better understanding of Academic Standing. If you are unsure of your academic standing we recommend that you visit with an academic advisor as soon as possible. Please take advantage of the assistance and guidance that can be provided by your academic advisors and faculty so that you can avoid a more serious situation in the future.

Northwest Vista College is currently accepting applications for the  Fall 2015 semester. The deadline to meet with your assigned advisor to submit your petition for fall 2015 is August 3rd, 2015 to submit their petition.  Petitions must be completed in full, or you will be required to reschedule your appointment.
