Reminder – You’re on Academic Probation Level 1
Welcome back to De Anza College! We want to remind you that your cumulative GPA has fallen below 2.0, as of the spring 2021 quarter. As a result, you are beginning the academic probation level 1 process.
You are not alone: Many students participate in the level 1 process each year, due to personal, financial, health or family issues that may affect their studies.
We have confidence in you! We believe you can raise your GPA, but it is important that you contact us to discuss your situation and develop a plan. For this reason, a registration hold will be placed on your student account next week, which will prevent you from registering for winter 2022 classes until you take the steps listed below.
These steps listed are designed to help you get back on track with your academic goals, improve your GPA and avoid additional consequences.
Required: You must complete one of these courses during fall quarter, if you haven't already done so:
- COUN 5: Introduction to College or
- EDAC 1: Introduction to College and Accommodations – offered through the Disability Support Programs and Services (DSPS) Division.
- Meet with a counselor to help you develop a plan for academic growth and success. If you aren’t in a program that has its own counselors, make an appointment with the retention counselor or with any counselor in the General Counseling and Advising Division. (You can meet by phone or on Zoom.)
- Complete the online Student Self-Assessment Survey to help our Retention Support Team identify ways to assist you.
If you have any questions about this process, please feel free to contact the De Anza Retention Team by using the eAdvising system. (See the easy steps listed on the Retention Team website.)
We are here for you: The Retention Team can suggest strategies and connect you with support and services to assist you in raising your cumulative GPA to at least a 2.0, so you can continue your studies.
We care about you and want to ensure that you have a successful experience at De Anza College. Here’s what one of our students told us last year:
“(My retention counselor) listened to my situation and gave me supportive, constructive suggestions (for) my challenges. (She) acted as if they were common experiences and struggles that many students have. It was very helpful to me, and I believe that I am on the right path going forward.”
