Academic Probation, Drop, and Appeal
The Language and Culture Center expects all students make normal and satisfactory progress, follow LCC program policies and procedures, and abide by requirements of the University's Student Code of Conduct.
You might be placed on probation if you fail to complete assignments, miss more than 39 hours of class (or 19 hours for Summer II students), or are disruptive in classes. If the LCC places you on probation, you will meet with the Academic Director and receive a Notice of Academic Probation which details the terms of your probation. If you fail to meet the terms of your probation, you will be dropped from the LCC.
You might be dropped from the LCC if one of the following occurs:
- You have an outstanding balance past the payment deadline. You will receive an email from the Director of the LCC informing you about the drop.
- You accrued 40 hours of absence (or 20 hours of absence if you are a Summer II students). You will receive a Drop Notice from the instructors.
- You were disruptive in the classroom. You will receive a Drop Notice from the instructors.
- You violated the University's Student Code of Conduct.
If you were dropped from the LCC, you might be allowed to submit an appeal in order to return to classes.
You were dropped due to an outstanding balance past the payment deadline:
You will not be allowed to appeal. To be reinstated, you must clear the full balance or provide a valid letter of financial guarantee.
You were dropped due to excessive absence or disciplinary issues:
Immediately after receiving the Drop Notice from thr instructors, you must inform the Director of Student Services about whether you wish to submit an appeal or leave the LCC.
If the Director of Student Services agrees to let you appeal, you must submit an appeal letter within three calendar days. The Director of Student Services will present your appeal letter and your teachers' recommendation letters to the LCC Student Appeals Committee. If the Committe approves your appeal, you will meet with the Academic Director and receive a Notice of Academic Probation detailing the terms and length of your probation. Then you may return to class.
If the Director of Student Services disagrees to let you appeal or if the LCC Student Appeals Committe denies your apeal, you will not be allowed to continue studying in the LCC. If you are an F-1 student, your SEVIS record will be terminated immediately.
You were dropped because you failed to meet the terms of your academic probation:
After being dropped and reinstated, you may be placed on academic probation. If you fail to meet the conditions of your academic probation, you will be dropped again and you will not be allowed to appeal. If you are an F-1 student, your SEVIS record will be terminated immediately.
