NOTE: Students may lose eligibility for federal or state financial aid programs if their minimum cumulative grade point average falls below 2.0.
 
Dismissed students may be readmitted to the College in the subsequent term via an Academic Reinstatement Agreement which provides a plan for success customized for each student. The issuance of the Agreement is made solely by and at the discretion of the vice president for Academic Affairs. This document supersedes the conditions for dismissal listed in this catalog. Students readmitted to the College under an Academic Reinstatement Agreement can be dismissed for non-compliance with the Agreement by the vice president for Academic Affairs or her designated representative at any time during the semester.

Students not readmitted under an Academic Reinstatement Agreement may appeal their dismissal based on extraordinary circumstances, which include major medical issues or extended leaves from campus. Appeals are reviewed by the vice president for Academic Affairs. Appealing students will be informed of their status by mail and email. Dismissal and Probationary Status for students enrolled with the Center for Career and Extended Learning
Students who wish to complete coursework and degrees on a part-time basis (less than 12 credit hours per semester) are eligible to do so through the Center for Career and Extended Learning. All matriculated students are required to follow the Satisfactory Academic Progress standards set by the Center for Career and Extended Learning. Students are required to matriculate (declare a major) upon the completion of 30 credit hours taken at Cazenovia College.

Students are subject to dismissal if they fall below probationary standards. GPA for part-time students is cumulative and therefore will be calculated based on all course work taken. Part-time students are not required to meet the minimum cumulative credits earned by term. If, at the end of each semester, a student’s grades fall below this minimum standard, he or she will be dismissed and will receive a letter from the Director of the Center for Career and Extended Learning informing him or her of their status. Students will be dismissed if their minimum cumulative grade point average does not meet the minimum requirements outlined below.
