Academic Standards

To graduate from Highline College, you must earn a minimum college-level cumulative GPA of 2.0. The Academic Standards Policy helps students be informed of their academic progress and connect with resources for success. Please read the catalog to review the policy.

The college will contact you when your quarterly or cumulative GPA is below the standard of 2.0.  You may need to take actions to improve your academic performance. See academic advising for assistance or questions about your status.

Probation 

If your quarterly and cumulative GPA are below 2.0, you are on academic probation. Complete the Academic Success module in Canvas, and attend a Thrive Student Success workshop. A registration block is placed on your account until these requirements are met. (International Student Programs must see your ISP advisor.)

Suspension

First Suspension: If your quarterly and cumulative GPAs are below 2.0 for two consecutive quarters, then you have two options: 1) take a one quarter Suspension, or 2) remain enrolled and participate in the Suspension alternative. For a one-quarter Suspension, you are responsible for withdrawing from any classes in accordance with all Registration deadlines, and for checking requirements of any funding source or special program. If you remain enrolled in classes, you must complete the assignments due in your Suspension Alternative module in Canvas by each due date. A registration block is placed on your account until these requirements are met. (International Student Programs must see your ISP advisor for your options.)

Second Suspension: If your quarterly and cumulative GPAs are below 2.0 for three consecutive quarters, you are suspended for one year/four quarters. You may submit an appeal to the Office of the Vice President of Student
Services and appear before the Scholastic Review Committee.

Returning from Suspension: If you return after one year, we want to be sure you are connected to an advisor or counselor who can assist and support you before you register . Contact advising for assistance.

For Faculty and Professional Advisors

Advisors can use the advising tool to view a student's record, which includes Academic Probation or Suspension status. After grades post, students should receive an email notifying them of their academic status and the steps they need to take to resolve any registration blocks associated with the policy. In addition to helping students develop strategies for academic success, please refer them to their Highline email to review their next steps and requirements.

Contact advising@highline.edu or (206) 592-3584 with any questions or for help.
