What is academic probation?
Academic probation occurs when your overall grade point average has fallen below an acceptable level (see page 47 of the college catalog)

How do I calculate my GPA?
To calculate your GPA you must multiply the number of quality points by the number of hours carried by the course and then divide by the total number of hours carried (Example: 24 points divided by 9 hours would equal a GPA of 2.6).
