What is Academic Warning

This warning alerts the student to potential difficulties and to potential loss of financial aid eligibility.

What is Academic Probation

At York College, you must maintain a minimum of a 2.0 GPA* (C average) to remain in Good Academic Standing.  Students whose GPA falls below 2.0 are considered within the guidelines for Academic Probation.
