Academic & Progress Probation Workshops

What if I am on Probation?

Students who do not achieve a GPA of at least 2.0 and/or do not complete at least 50% of their courses will be placed on academic and/or progress probation.  The first semester students will receive a warning and will be directed to resources to help get them back on track.  However, students who remain on probation for more than 1 semester will lose registration and Board of Governor’s fee waiver(BOG Waiver) privileges.  Students are notified of their probation status through their Rio Hondo College email or home mailing address at the end of each Fall and Spring semester.

First Warning Probation

If this is your first time on probation, you are strongly encourage to complete an Academic/Progress Probation Workshop or meet with a Counselor.  Doing so will help you better understand your probation status and learn about student support services.  Probation workshops are available in person or on-line, or you can choose to meet with a Counselor in person. Please call the Counseling Center at (562) 908-3410 to schedule an appointment.

Final Warning Probation

Students who remain on probation for two semesters will have a hold on their registration, are no longer eligible for priority registration or Board of Governor’s (BOG) fee waiver.  They have one final semester to improve before being dismissed.  In order to clear the registration hold, these students are REQUIRED to complete a Probation Workshop.  Probation workshops are available in person or on-line, or you can choose to meet with a Counselor in person. Please call the Counseling Center at (562) 908-3410 to schedule an appointment.  Registration holds will be cleared within 24 hours of completing the on-line workshops, in person working, or after meeting with a Counselor.

After the registration hold is cleared, students will be able to register during the open registration period (the last group to register).  Students can appeal to keep their Enrollment Priority (registration appointment) and/or Board of Governor’s Fee Waiver (BOG).

Appeal to keep Priority Enrollment and Board of Governor’s (BOG) Fee Waiver
