Mandatory Advising Process

All students on academic probation are required to meet specific Academic Advising requirements prior to the third week of the following semester. Advising (ADV) holds are placed on probation students' records and changes to those records (e.g., add or drop a class) will be prohibited until the hold is removed. The advising hold will be removed when all Academic Advising requirements have been met. Students on probation should refer to their MyCI email for specific requirements based on GPA and class standing.

Learning Community

All students on academic probation will be added to the Academic Probation Learning Community within CIlearn. Students will be required to complete the Academic Probation learning module which includes a test on the module. Students on probation should refer to their MyCI email for specific requirements based on GPA and class standing.

Once logged into CILearn, click on the top tab titled CI Community and then select "Academic Probation" under the heading "My Organizations" to enter the Academic Probation Learning Community.

Self-Assessment Survey

All students on academic probation will be required to complete a self-assessment survey consisting of the factors contributing to academic difficulty. Students will be emailed the survey to their MyCI email address and it must be completed prior to meeting with an Academic Advisor.

Academic Probation Videos

These videos were created to assist students on probation in getting a better understanding of academic probation at CI. Students are required to view the videos as part of the mandatory advising process.

14 Unit Limitation

All students on academic probation will be limited to 14 units the semester(s) they are on probation. Because of the Advising hold, probation students will not be able to drop units to the 14 unit limitation until after removing the hold, which is only done by completing the mandatory advising process. Probation students wanting to enroll in more than 14 units should refer to the Academic Probation Learning Community and their MyCI email for more information.
