Academic Standing


CCTCMA is committed to maintaining high standards and encouraging your academic success. Academic standing applies to all programs at CCTCMA and relates to the student’s eligibility to register in courses of all Programs at CCTCMA.

If you are experiencing academic difficulty, you are encouraged to meet with your academic advisor as soon as possible. The sooner you get assistance, the easier it will be for you to get help.

Students who do not meet minimum academic performance requirements (60 percent overall average) will be placed on Academic Probation. Notice of Academic Probation will be placed on a student’s Statement of Standing but not on a student’s transcript.

Students will be notified that they have been placed on Academic Probation by an official Statement of Standing sent to the mailing address on the student’s record.

The academic record of students placed on Academic Probation will be re-evaluated at the end of the next semester.

Students must attain a minimum 60 percent overall average on total courses attempted while on academic probation to be allowed to continue.

  1. Good Standing: 60 percent overall average or better.
  2. Academic Warning: Students whose overall average is below 60% will be placed on Academic Warning. Students are only eligible to remain on Academic Warning for a total of two semesters.
  3. Academic Probation: Students who have remained on Academic Warning for two semesters and whose overall average is below 60% will be placed on Academic Probation. Students are only eligible to remain on Academic Probation for one semester.
