All students, regardless if they are matriculated or non-matriculated, who at the end of the spring or fall semester do not meet the minimum, cumulative GPA (based on credits attempted) will be placed on academic probation at the end of the semester.
There are three main consequences:
- A credit limit: Most students on probation will not be able to register for more than 12 credits per semester. Students who were recently re-admitted to the College may have a credit limit of less than 12 credits.
- Financial aid ramifications: The awarding of TAP and Pell grants may be affected by a student’s probationary status. Check your F.A.C.T.S. account for your financial aid eligibility. If your financial aid has been affected, refer to the Financial Aid Office’s notice on Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP), https://www.york.cuny.edu/finaid/academic-progress
- A risk of being dismissed from the College: A student remains on probation until he/she reaches the minimum cumulative GPA or better. If the student has not reached the minimum cumulative GPA or better by the end of the following spring semester, he/she will be dismissed.
A probation hold was placed on your account to ensure you receive additional support provided by the Probation Advisement sessions. Probation Advisement sessions are one-on-one meetings with Counseling Center staff and will provide you with crucial information about the implications of being on probation, help you identify areas that you need to improve in, and empower you to take ownership over your college career.
The probation hold will be removed from your account once you successfully complete a single Probation Advisement session. Note, the probationary indicator and hold will be reinstated for future registration(s) until the cumulative GPA reaches 2.0 or better.
Yes. A student may petition the Committee on Academic Policy and Standards (CAPS) to change grades of WN, WU, FIN or INC to W, or to assign a grade of W in a course during the current semester for which the tenth-week deadline has passed (this is called a retroactive withdrawal). The academic department must certify the student's last date of class attendance, and the student must provide evidence of the extenuating circumstance that prevented official withdrawal by the deadline. To petition CAPS, students must complete the download and complete the petition paperwork by visiting the website of the office of Student Academic Services.
WU is assigned to students who participated a minimum of one class, completely stopped participating at any time before final exam week, and never officially withdrew.
No. If you were on academic probation during your last semester at York College before taking one or more semesters off, you must petition the Committee on Academic Policies and Standards (CAPS) for reinstatement to the College. To petition CAPS, you must visit the website of the Office of Student Academic Services in AC-4G04 to obtain official reinstatement forms.
Additionally, a Counseling Center advisement hold will be placed on your account once you are approved to return. The advisement hold will be removed from your account once you successfully complete a single Probation Workshop.
