Students placed on Academic Probation, Suspension, or Dismissal are required to meet with a Counselor. It is suggested that students placed on Academic Caution meet with a Counselor.
More information about Joliet Junior College's Academic Standards of Progress and steps required for students in any of these categories is available here.
Students on Academic Probation (AP)
Students on Academic Probation are required to attend a Probation Intervention Group session. Students can register online at www.jjc.edu/info/apgroup. Probation students are encouraged to register for Counselor recommended courses, limited credit hours for the next semester, and may be required to enroll in a GSD course. Students who have previously registered for the next academic semester (Fall, Spring or Summer) will be notified that failure to comply with these requirements by a designated deadline will likely result in withdrawal from classes for the subsequent semester. Computer restrictions will prevent self-registration through e-resources (online) in this category.
Students on Academic Suspension (ASP)
Students on Academic Suspension are restricted from taking courses the following semester. Students on suspension are also required to schedule an appointment with a counselor a minimum of two weeks prior to the semester you are eligible for re-enrollment. Students returning from a one-semester Academic Suspension are limited to the number of hours successfully completed or passed with a "D" grade or better, or the number of courses recommended by the counselor or advisor. Course selection will be determined in the counseling session. Computer restrictions will prevent self-registration (online or in person) while suspended from the college. Students have the right to appeal their suspensions via the Academic Standards Appeal Process (see details below).
Students on Academic Dismissal (ADS)
Students who have returned from a one-semester Academic Suspension and again do not meet the appropriate grade point average requirement will be dismissed for one academic year. Dismissed students are required to schedule an appointment with a Counselor prior to the semester elibible for re-enrollment. College restrictions will prevent self-registration (online or in person) while dismissed from the college. Students have the right to appeal their dismissal via the Academic Standards Appeal Process (see details below).
