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 priority and California College Promise Grant (formerly known as BOG waiver).  Students are notified of their probation status through their Rio Hondo College email 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 California College Promise Grant (formerly known as BOG 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 California College Promise Grant (formerly known as BOG waiver).

Dismissal

Students who remain on probation for more than two semesters will have a hold on their registration and are required to sit out one semester (excluding summer session).   This can be appealed by meeting with a Counselor and completing a Reinstatement Petition prior to the start of the following semester.  Please call the Counseling Center at (562) 908-3410 to schedule an appointment. Registration holds will be cleared within 24 hours after meeting with a Counselor.  

If a student is reinstated, he/she 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 California College Promise Grant (formerly known as BOG waiver).

Appeal to keep Priority Enrollment and California College Promise Grant (formerly known as BOG waiver)

Students who complete the probation workshop or are reinstated after meeting with a Counselor, will be able to register only during the open enrollment period.  If you feel you have a compelling reason to be granted an appeal to either retain your enrollment priority and/or to retain your BOG fee waiver, please read and complete the Enrollment Priority CCPG Appeal Form.  You will be required to provide supporting documentation.

NOTE: An approved appeal cannot be applied to a student’s record if the student has not completed a FAFSA for the applicable academic year.  If you are submitting an appeal to regain CCPG (formely BOG), be sure you have completed your FAFSA in order to reduce delays.

If you need assistance in completing your Enrollment Priority and CPPG Appeal, you can call the counseling center to be accommodated (562) 908-3410.
