A student who has been academically dismissed has two options for completing studies at Jefferson Community College:
- An appeal may be made to the Faculty Petitions Committee for consideration to be reinstated
on Academic Probation for the following semester. The appeal must be submitted in
writing on the appropriate petition form and must indicate to the Committee the reason(s)
for unsatisfactory achievement during the past semester and plans for improvement.
The student will be notified in writing of the Committee’s decision.
- Without appealing, the student may continue studies on a part-time non-matriculated basis. The student must seek assistance from their academic advisor to plan a course of study prior to registration. It might be to the student’s advantage to repeat a course in which a “D” or “F” grade has been received in order to raise the cumulative average.
Following successful completion of such part-time study, the student may apply for reinstatement to matriculated status. Such a request is made to the Director of Admissions for consideration.
In addition to the above, a student may apply to return to full-time matriculated status after an interruption of attendance of at least one semester. Evidence of increased ability and motivation to succeed in college studies must be evident.
