Academic Standards

The Academic Standards at Wenatchee Valley College have been established to ensure that the college resources are used in the best interest of all current and future students.  The policy also ensures that students with academic difficulties are made aware of the many educational resources available to them.  Students are encouraged to assume responsibility for their own academic progress.

First Quarter –Warning

·         A student attempting six (6) or more graded credits will be placed on Academic Warning when his or her cumulative GPA falls below 2.0.  All students on Academic Warning will receive letters from the Admissions department advising them of their academic standing, and the next steps to take. The transcript will be endorsed “Academic Warning.”  Students will remain on Academic Warning status in subsequent quarters until their cumulative GPA is 2.0 or higher.

Second Quarter -Probation

·         If a student on Academic Warning attempts six (6) or more graded credits for a second time, and his or her quarterly GPA falls below 2.0, they will be placed on Academic Probation. All students on Academic Probation will receive letters from the Admissions department advising them of their academic standing, and the next steps to take. The transcript will be endorsed “Academic Probation.”  Students will remain on Academic Probation status in subsequent quarters until their cumulative GPA is 2.0 or higher.  

Third Quarter -Suspension

·         If a student on Academic Probation attempts six (6) or more graded credits for a third time, and his or her quarterly GPA falls below 2.0, they will be placed on Academic Suspension. All students on Academic Suspension will receive letters from the Admissions department advising them of their academic standing, and the next steps to take. The transcript will be endorsed “Academic Suspension.”  Suspended students will dropped from any classes they may be enrolled in for the upcoming academic quarter(s). Students returning from Academic Suspension will be required to submit a completed Petition for Readmission to the student development office. The student will be scheduled for a readmission interview with a counselor.  The student will remain on Academic Suspension status in subsequent quarters until their cumulative GPA is 2.0 or higher. 

 

Academic Forgiveness

If a student stops attending WVC while on Academic Warning, Probation, or Suspension status, they will remain at that level for a period of at least three years (12 academic quarters).  If during that time they have not returned to WVC, their student records will be updated to remove them from their academic deficiency status.

 

Academic Regulations Committee (ARC)

The WVC Academic Regulations Committee reviews student’s petitions for waiver of college policies.  All petitions must be in writing, petitioners may appear in person before the committee.  The committee makes recommendations on petitions and refers them to the appropriate administrator for action.
