What if I am on Probation?
Students who are on academic or progress probation are notified through their Rio Hondo College email at the end of each Fall and Spring semester. Students who have, in any combination, a GPA below 2.0 or have not completed at least 50% of their courses for two semesters in a row will have a hold on their registration, are no longer eligible for priority registration or Board of Governor’s (BOG) fee waiver, and are in danger of being dismissed.
If you are on probation you must complete a Academic/Progress Probation Workshop designed to help you better understand your probation status and learn about student support services. Probation workshops are available in person or on-line. Students who wish to be reinstated after being dismissed must meet with a Counselor in person. Please call the Counseling Center at (562) 908-3410 to schedule an appointment.

What if I am on Dismissal?
At the end of each Fall and Spring semester students who are on academic or progress dismissal are notified through via their Rio Hondo College email and a notification is sent to their home address. Students who have, in any combination, a GPA below 2.0 or have not completed at least 50% of their courses for more than two semesters in a row are required to sit out one semester (excluding summer session). This action may be appealed by meeting with a Counselor to request a Petition for Reinstatement. Please call the Counseling Center at (562) 908-3410 to schedule an appointment. The registration hold will remain in effect for the next registration period until the student meets with a Counselor.
