Transfer Probation and Suspension *New Policy*


-Transfer Students on Academic Probation
A transfer student who is on academic probation and who has a cumulative grade point average below 2.0 at his/her previous institution will enter Delgado on academic probation. At the end of his/her first semester/session, he/she will be suspended if he/she does not achieve a 2.0 grade point average for the semester/session.

He/she will be placed in good academic standing if his/her first semester/session average is 2.0 or higher. The student’s academic status at the end of each subsequent semester of attendance at Delgado will be based on the Delgado cumulative/semester average only.

-Transfer Students on First-Time Academic Suspension
Transfer students who have been suspended for the first time from an accredited college or university may be admitted to Delgado. If admitted, the student is placed on academic probation and may enroll in up to 12 credit hours for the fall and spring semesters and 7 credit hours for the summer session.  At the end of his/her first semester/session at Delgado, the student will be placed in good academic standing if his/her first semester/session average is 2.0 or higher.  

If the student’s first semester/session is in the fall semester and he/she does not achieve a 2.0 semester grade point average, the student will be placed on a second-time suspension (the first-time suspension being from the previous institution) and must remain out of school for the following spring semester.
If the student’s first semester/session is in the spring semester and he/she does not achieve a 2.0 semester grade point average, the student will be placed on a second-time suspension (the first-time suspension being from the previous institution) and must remain out of school for the following summer session and fall semester.

If the student’s first semester/session is the summer session and he/she does not achieve a 2.0 session grade point average, the student will be placed on a second-time suspension (the first-time suspension being from the previous institution) and must remain out of school for the following fall semester. However, he/she may appeal to attend the following fall semester in accordance with the procedures outlined in the College’s Academic Appeals policy.

The student’s academic status at the end of each subsequent semester of attendance at Delgado will be based on the Delgado cumulative/semester average only.

-Transfer Students on Second-Time Suspension
Transfer students who are suspended for a second time for academic reasons from other accredited colleges or universities must remain out of school for the following regular (fall or spring) semester.
