Chemeketa is committed to helping students reach their academic goals. To accomplish this, the College has implemented an Academic Standing Policy that provides intervention at certain points throughout enrollment at Chemeketa. These intervention points are determined by term and/or cumulative grade point average (GPA) and number of attempted credits. 

The Academic Standing policy, which can be seen on the public website here, reads: The college requires credit-seeking students to maintain satisfactory academic progress. Students who are not meeting academic standards may not be eligible for continued enrollment, per Procedure 5030. Financial aid recipients must ensure they meet the financial aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) policy, which may have separate standards in order for students to maintain financial aid eligibility.

At the end of each academic term, students will be assessed based on their performance, for their academic standing.  Once assessed, students are notified by the college if they fall into Academic Warning, Probation or Suspension status.  The criteria for those Academic Standings was determined by the committee, approved by the Executive Team and the Board of Education, and is as follows:

Good Standing; student meets all below standards:

  • A student who has a 2.00 or higher cumulative GPA

  • A student who has a 2.00 or higher term GPA

Academic Warning; student meets at least one of the below criteria:

  • A student who has earned a term GPA below 2.00, or

  • A student who has attempted 1-36 credits and has below a 2.00 cumulative GPA

Academic Probation; student meets at least one of the below criteria:

  • A student is already on Academic Warning or Academic Probation standing and has a consecutive term below 2.00 and has attempted 18 or more credits, or

  • Any student who has attempted 37 or more credits and has a cumulative GPA below 2.00

Academic Suspension; student must meet all criteria below to be eligible for suspension

  • A student who is in Academic Probation standing and has 37 or more attempted credits, AND  

  • Has earned a term GPA below a 2.00, AND

  • Has a cumulative GPA below 2.00

A student meeting all of the criteria above will be administratively dropped from any courses that they are enrolled in for the suspension term. A student suspended based on their performance in spring term will be dropped from summer and fall enrollment and will be eligible to enroll in fall term classes once the reinstatement process is complete. Students will be suspended from enrollment for a period no less than one academic term. The student may appeal their suspension through the Academic Standing Review Committee or designee.
