What is Academic Probation?

Academic probation serves as a warning that your grades need to improve so you can successfully complete your degree program. If given this warning, OTC limits you to taking to a maximum of 12 credit hours and requires you to meet with your assigned advisor each semester until you are no longer on academic probation.

Below is a chart of the GPA requirements:

The good news? You have a “second chance” to do well in classes!  We are confident that, if you are willing to work hard and seek assistance, your chances of success can improve greatly! You can raise your grade point average by retaking certain courses and enrolling in a lighter course load. Please contact your assigned advisor to discuss your options.
