ADDRESS CHANGES

It is very important that the Admissions Office (Vermilion Hall) has an updated address on each student. Registration, billing, course changes, and grades are all affected by an incorrect address. Please notify the Admissions Office of your new address. Please note that changing your address to an in-district address will not automatically change your residency or tuition status. Appropriate documentation must be presented to change residency. To view the steps to change residency, visit the Admissions & Registration web pages at https://www.dacc.edu/ar/residency.

ACADEMIC STANDARDS OF PROGRESS (for all college-level courses and programs)

Minimum Satisfactory Grade Level

A student will be considered on academic probation if he or she fails to maintain the cumulative Grade Point Average required for good standing, as shown below.

Semester Hours Earned at DACC Minimum GPA for Good Standing*
0 – 17 Credit Hours 1.40
18 - 31 Credit Hours 1.60
32 - 48 Credit Hours 1.80
49 + Credit Hours 2.00
  * (4.0 = A)

Academic Probation

A student placed on academic probation will be limited to a maximum of twelve (12) credit hours of enrollment for the next term. Students on academic probation will be required to develop a plan for academic success with their Academic Advisor. The following criteria also apply:

  • The student must earn a 2.00 grade point average (GPA) or higher for the term.
  • The student will remain on probation until he/she attains a cumulative GPA for good standing (see above chart).

In the event that the student does not achieve either of the above criteria, the student will be placed on academic suspension for one term.

Readmission

Before a suspended student will be readmitted he or she must prepare a Probation Contract which will identify the measures to be applied to improve the student’s GPA (e.g. change of program, remedial classes, tutorial, or other academic support services, etc.). Enrollment for the next semester will be limited to a maximum of twelve (12) credit hours. The student must earn a 2.00 grade point average (GPA) or higher for the term. The student will remain on probation until he/she attains a cumulative GPA for good standing (see above chart). In the event that the student does not achieve either of the above mentioned criteria, the student will be placed on academic suspension for one term.

Appeals

Appeals of Academic Suspension may be directed to the Vice President of Student Services.
