Step 2 - Get Facts

Depending on your status, the consequences vary. All dismissed students have a hold on their records and will not be able to register in person, register on the web, or use the phone registration system. Students on Dismissal must meet with a counselor prior to registering for courses. The student must complete the Petition for Re-admission and the Success Plan prior to meeting with a counselor. The counseling department phone number is 408.848.4723.  A scheduled appointment will be necessary as “walk-in counseling services” are only reserved for students who need ten minutes of a counselor’s time. Reviewing a petition and approving a Success Plan will require at least a 30 minute pre-scheduled appointment with a counselor.

Together the counselor and student will review the academic standing, discuss options, and review documents required for readmission. Currently, the Dismissal Status is the only status that will stop a student from registering for any coursework until the petition is approved.

Students on Probation are highly encouraged to review the table below and discuss your plan for improvement with a counselor. Students must schedule an in-person counseling appointment to review the Success Plan with a counselor to ensure that your plan will help improve your academic standing. *In the near future, students who are on Probation, warning 2, may expect mandatory course load restrictions.

The above are the consequences that the college imposes; however, there are personal consequences that may also impact your situation. For example, students who must maintain full time status at a college to keep their health or car insurance and/or employee educational reimbursement monies face loosing these benefits as a result of being on Probation or Dismissal.

Take a few minutes now to complete your Success Plan worksheet prior to advancing to Step 3. Based on what you learned about the consequences of your status, you should be able to understand the college and personal limitations that you are facing.
