Academic Standing

The academic standing of each Evergreen student is carefully monitored to ensure the full development of his or her academic potential.

Any student not making satisfactory academic progress, as defined below, is informed of his or her standing in the College and is advised accordingly. NOTE: Financial aid recipients must also adhere to Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policies.

Evaluation by faculty of student achievement formally occurs at the conclusion of programs, individual learning contracts, internships, and courses. In addition, any student in danger of receiving less than full credit will be notified in writing at mid-quarter by his or her faculty sponsor.

A student making unsatisfactory academic progress shall receive an Academic Warning and may be required to take a Leave of Absence.

Academic Warning

A student who earns fewer than three-fourths (75%) of registered credits in two successive quarters shall receive an Academic Warning, issued by the Office of Enrollment Services.

A student registered for six (6) quarter credit hours or more who receives no credit in any quarter shall receive an Academic Warning.

Such warning will urge the student to seek academic advice or personal counseling from a member of the faculty or through one of the Learning Resource Centers such as the Quantitative & Symbolic Reasoning Center for assistance with math and science or the Writing Center to strengthen writing processes.

A student shall be removed from Academic Warning status upon receiving at least three-fourths of the credit for which he or she is registered in two successive quarters.

Required Leave of Absence

A student who has received an Academic Warning, and while in warning status, receives either an Incomplete or fewer than three-fourths credit for which he or she is registered will be required to take a Leave of Absence, normally for one full year.

A waiver of Required Leave can be granted only by the Academic Dean responsible for academic standing upon the student's presentation of evidence of extenuating circumstances.

A student returning from Required Leave will re-enter on Academic Warning and will be expected to make satisfactory progress toward a bachelor's degree.

Failure to earn at least three-fourths credit while in Warning status shall result in dismissal from the College.
