What is Probation?

Academic Probation

- A student who has completed at least 12 semester units at MiraCosta.
- Cumulative G.P.A. is below a 2.0 (C average).

Progress Probation

- A student who has attempted at least 12 semester units at MiraCosta.
- Has completed less than 50 percent with an evaluative grade (i.e. received a "W" withdrawal, "I" incomplete, or "NP" no pass).

We define two different types of probation at MiraCosta. Academic Probation refers to students who have completed at least 12 semester units and have a cumulative grade point average that is below a 2.0, which is a C average. Progress Probation refers to students who have attempted at least 12 semester units, with less than 50 percent of the units completed with an evaluative grade. That means that the student has received "W", "I", and "NP" marks for the majority of units attempted.
