You may not be aware that dismissal for scholastic reasons may 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 that assistance. Please take advantage of the opportunity for assistance and guidance that can be gained from academic advisors and faculty so you can avoid a more serious situation in the future.
What is Academic Dismissal?
If students on Academic Probation or Continued Academic Probation at one of the Alamo Colleges do not earn a semester GPA of 2.0 as well as a cumulative GPA of 2.0 in the semester following their probationary status, they will be placed on Academic Dismissal. In accordance with the Alamo Colleges' policy, students placed on Academic Dismissal are required to sit out one full fall or spring semester. Students placed on Academic Dismissal will receive ACES email notification from the Alamo Colleges informing them of their status at the end of the semester.
