Academic Status

Academic status is the college’s method of determining your eligibility to remain enrolled in school. If affected, students stand a chance of loosing eligibility for grants, scholarships, special insurance rates, loans, college work-study, participation in intercollegiate athletics and other college activities.

Academic Probation

Students will be placed on academic probation whenever their Delgado Community College adjusted cumulative GPA falls below 2.0. Only students who have attempted at least 15 credits hours are susceptible to academic probation. 

Once on academic probation, students will remain on probation (as long as each semester's average is at least a 2.000) until the adjusted cumulative grade point average of 2.000 or higher is achieved. While on probation, students may enroll in up to 13 credit hours for the fall and spring semesters and 7 credit hours for the summer session. The College strives to provide academic advising and/or intervention for these students. Once an adjusted cumulative GPA of 2.000 or higher is achieved, students will be removed from probation.

Academic Suspension

Students who have been placed on academic probation will be academically suspended from the institution for one semester at the conclusion of any semester or summer session in which they fail to earn a semester grade point average of 2.0. Students on academic suspension are ineligible to receive Title IV assistance. 

Students will not be suspended before they have attempted 24 adjusted cummulative quality hours.
