2017 – 2018 LWTech Student Handbook
Level 1: Academic Alert
In the first quarter after a quarter of good standing that the cumulative or quarterly grade point average falls below 2.0, the college notifies the student that he/she has been placed on academic alert status. Students will be encouraged to meet with their faculty adviser or advisers in the counseling and advising center to develop educational strategies and plan to correct this pattern. There is no appeal of this academic alert.
Level 2: Probation
In the second consecutive quarter of enrollment with a cumulative or quarterly grade point average below 2.0, the college will notify the student of probation status. Students will be required to meet with their faculty adviser or advisers in the counseling and advising center to develop educational strategies and an educational plan to correct this pattern. The student’s registration will be blocked and the signature of the adviser will be required in order for the student to register for classes. If the student fails to raise his/ her quarterly and cumulative GPA to 2.0, the student will be suspended. There is no appeal of this probation.
Level 3: Academic Suspension
In the third consecutive quarter enrollment with a cumulative or quarterly grade point average below 2.0, the college will suspend the student for one quarter. During the student’s suspension, the student may not register for any course. In addition, the student may not participate in events or activities reserved for students. The student may appeal this suspension. At the end of the suspension, the student may return as a continuing student, with an approved education plan, on a space available basis in the program. Some programs may have additional re-application requirements. The student will be placed on academic probation when returning and is required to raise the quarterly GPA to a 2.0 or better at the end of the quarter in which the student returns. If the cumulative GPA is remains below 2.0, the student will continue on probation even if the quarterly GPA is above 2.0. If the quarterly GPA earned is below 2.0, the student will be subject to suspension for up to one year.
Appeal of Academic Suspension
Students may only appeal Academic Suspension status. The student must show proof of circumstances over which they did not have control and/or show proof of making measurable and substantial progress towards repairing academic performance. The appeal is an informal meeting with the appropriate program dean. The dean reviews appeals on a case by case basis and may grant the appeal, allow the student to continue under certain conditions, or deny the appeal. The decision of the dean is final.
Administrative Withdrawals
You may be administratively withdrawn from an individual class or all classes in a particular quarter for the following reasons. In all cases, tuition refunds will follow LWTech’s posted refund policy.
Failure to meet prerequisite requirements: Many classes require completion of prerequisite coursework to ensure students are prepared for course content and rigor. Students must meet the requirements of a class either by grade, transfer coursework, placement score, or faculty permission.
Conduct sanctions: When a student is found in violation of one or more of the student conduct codes published in the student handbook, administrative withdrawal may be selected as an appropriate sanction.
Non-attendance: In order to maximize enrollment opportunities for all students, instructors may request the Enrollment Services office to administratively withdraw students who (1) Do not attend the first and/or any subsequent class meetings AND (2) Do not notify the instructor in advance of the absence.
