Scholastic Information

TSTC’s scholastic standards are based on a philosophy of advancing student progress toward successful course and program completion.  The criteria for scholastic standing are designed to monitor student progress so that faculty and staff can intervene and assist students who have difficulty meeting minimum requirements.

Scholastic standing is computed at the end of each enrollment period and is based on the Standards of Progress (SOP) Term and Cumulative GPAs.

Good Standing                                                                                            
A student who maintains minimum 2.00 standards of progress cumulative and term grade point averages will be in good academic standing.

Scholastic Probation                                                                                
A student whose standards of progress cumulative or term grade point average is below 2.00 at the end of an enrollment period is placed on scholastic probation. A student may continue on scholastic probation by achieving a minimum standards of progress term grade point average of 2.00 at the end of the enrollment period.  A student is removed from scholastic probation when the standards of progress cumulative and term grade point averages are 2.00 or higher.

Scholastic probation is a serious warning that the quality of the student’s work must improve in order for the student to continue enrollment in the college.  Students on scholastic probation are required to meet with a counselor or advisor prior to registration and may be required to enroll in special programs or courses in order to improve grade point average.  After counseling with Career Guidance staff, the student may be permitted to enroll in a new program while on scholastic probation.  

Scholastic Suspension                                                                              
Scholastic suspension occurs when a student on scholastic probation fails to maintain minimum academic standards.  A student on scholastic probation who fails to achieve a standards of progress term grade point average of 2.00 or higher will be suspended for one calendar year.  A suspended student may appeal for a waiver of a suspension to the instructional dean or designee.  Any student who is scholastically suspended will be permitted to reapply for admission one calendar year from the scholastic suspension term.  A student who re-enters the college after having been suspended will be placed on scholastic probation status and will be subject to the minimum requirements governing scholastic probation.

Scholastic Honors                                                                                       
Full-time students (those enrolled for 12 or more credits) who earn SOP Term GPAs of 4.0 are placed on the President’s  List.  Full-time students who earn SOP Term GPAs of 3.5 to 3.99 are placed on the Dean’s List.
