Reporting students with poor academic performance is referred to as an early alert. The early alert process allows faculty, and the student support counselors to help students receive the academic or emotional support needed to be successful.
How to determine if you should report a student as an early alert,
- The student is missing three or more assignments.
- The student has missed one or more classes having rigorous lab time.
- The student has failed two or more assignments or exams.
- Other areas you feel will hinder the student’s academic success
It is extremely important to report students timely to allow time for the student to improve. LRCC has many academic and emotional supports in place to assist our students.
Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards
If you receive VA benefits, you must maintain satisfactory academic progress in your chosen program of study. We suggest you familiarize yourself with these requirements.
Veteran students will be ineligible for VA benefits for one term if they do not meet these standards. That means you will not receive your benefits for the term following such a determination. See 34 CFR §668.34.
Each semester the Associate Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs reviews the academic performance of matriculated students whose cumulative grade point average (CGPA) is below 2.0. This review may result in a status of probation or suspension.
Academic Probation: Students will be placed on probation if they fall within one of the following categories:
|between .500 and 1.49 CGPA
|between 1.10 and 1.69 CGPA
|between 1.25 and 1.79 CGPA
|between 1.50 and 1.99 CGPA
Students placed on academic probation will be limited to enrolling in 12 credits and may not participate in any extracurricular activities.
Academic Suspension: Students will be placed on suspension from the college for one semester if their academic performance falls under one of the following categories:
|between 0.00 and .499 CGPA
|between 0.00 and 1.09 CGPA
|between 0.00 and 1.24 CGPA
|between 0.00 and 1.49 CGPA
