Students are placed on academic probation because they have not met the minimum grade point average required to be a full-time student in good standing. As a result, their academic standing has dropped to "D" probation status.
Students on "D" status are limited to part-time study and may register for a maximum of 11.5 credits. They are also in danger of academic dismissal.
Beginning with the Fall 2012 registration process students will not be able to register until they attend a Retention Strategy Session (RSS) or see a counselor in the Center for Educational and Retention Counseling (CERC). A registration "HOLD" has been placed on their record which means that they cannot self-serve on Banner to register for their following semester's courses.
In order to have the "HOLD" lifted students must complete one Retention Strategy Session intervention. The workshops are designed to help students get off academic probation and return to academic good standing.
The workshops will include specific strategies on how to 1) create an academic plan to raise the GPA; 2) calculate the GPA; 3) manage time better; 4) study more effectively. Also, information about other resources such as career counseling, job placement, psychological counseling, transferring and learning labs will be discussed.
Students on probation are directed to attend ONE (1) RSS workshop. This strategy session will discuss what students can do NOW to avoid academic dismissal in the future. After students attend the RSS workshop, the "HOLD" on their record will be released within 24 hours.
This is a serious matter that requires time for discussing the causes and finding solutions to your situation. Nassau Community College places great importance on helping their students achieve success.
Students registered with the Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD) are to meet with their CSD counselor. Call 572-7241 to make an appointment.
Students can find a list of the RSS workshops listed under the CERC Workshop link.
To make an appointment with a CERC Counselor go to Nassau Hall (Bldg. M), Room 19, or call 516.572.7141.
