In order to assure that students at Emmanuel Bible College are making satisfactory progress toward their academic goals, the college has instituted a system of academic probation. The following categories will apply to students who experience academic difficulties:
1. Academic Warning
A student whose term or cumulative grade point average falls below “C” (2.0) for a semester will be placed on academic warning for the next semester of enrollment. Appropriate counseling will be initiated.
2. Academic Probation
A student whose term grade point average is below 2.0 for any semester while on academic warning will be placed on academic probation. Counseling will be provided to improve the quality of the student’s work. A student on academic probation is not permitted to hold student office.
3. Academic Probation with Restriction
A student on academic probation whose term grade point average falls below 2.0 during the probationary term will be placed on academic probation with restriction. The student will be restricted to a reduced course enrollment that will include only those courses approved by the student’s advisor and the executive director. A student on academic probation with restriction is not permitted to hold student office.
4. Academic Suspension
A student on academic probation with restriction and whose term grade point average falls below 2.0 in the next semester will be placed on academic suspension and will be ineligible to enroll the next semester. Re-admission requires that a signed request be submitted to the executive director, in which case the student, if re-admitted, will be placed under probation with restriction status for the next semester of enrollment.
Academic probation status and academic suspension status will be noted on the applicable student's transcripts. Student financial aid could be affected by academic probation and/or academic suspension status. The student must consult with the executive director.
Additionally, a special review of student academic progress is made at the end of a student’s second year at EBC. Students with less than a “C” (2.0) average at the end of the second year may be in danger of losing financial aid privileges.
Students must check with the Executive Director to determine continuation of their eligibility.
