Don't let probation stand in your way, good academic standing is only a workshop away!
Students at MiraCosta College can be placed on two different types of probation; academic and/or progress probation. Students on probation for the first time will receive a First Time Probation Counseling Hold that requires they attend a Probation to Graduation Workshop in order to enroll in future terms.
- A student has attempted a minimum of twelve (12) semester units resulting in a grade point average of less than a "C" (2.0).
- Academic probation will be removed when the student's cumulative grade point average is 2.0 or higher.
- A student has attempted at least twelve (12) semester units and fifty percent (50%) or more of the attempted units resulted in grades of "W"(withdrawal), "I" (incomplete), "NC" (no credit), or "NP" (no pass).
- Progress probation will be removed when the percentage of units completed is above fifty percent (50%) of the attempted units.
How to Remove the First Time Probation Hold
The First Time Probation Counseling Hold is placed on a student's SURF account and will prevent enrollment for future semesters.
- Students MUST attend a Probation to Graduation Workshop in order to have the First Time Probation Counseling Hold removed.
- EOPS, DSPS, CalWORKs, RAFFFY and Military Affiliated/Veterans students are excluded from the First Time Probation Counseling Hold and may have program specific requirements when on academic and/or progress probation.

- A student on academic or progress probation for three consecutive semesters may be subject to dismissal from the college.
- Probation is based on cumulative coursework and may take several semesters to improve.
- Students should contact the Financial Aid Office regarding academic progress requirements for federal aid eligibility. Different requirements will apply.
