Academic Standing

Academic Probation/Suspension

At the end of each semester, the Kentucky Community and Technical College System runs end-of-term processing.  This updates GPAs and automatically puts students on probation or suspension.  Gateway’s Registrar’s Office sends an email to students that are placed on academic probation or continued probation and a letter to students that are suspended at the end of each semester.

  • Students are placed on Academic Probation (Probation 1) if they earned below a 2.0 GPA at the end of the semester.
  • Students are placed on continued Academic Probation (or Probation 2) if they haven’t brought their GPA up after being placed on Probation 1.
  • Students are placed on Academic Suspension if they have received below a 2.0 GPA for three consecutive terms.
  • Students who have been academically suspended from another college the semester/quarter before they apply to Gateway are put on academic suspension.
  • All academically suspended students are required to sit out one 15-week semester and follow the Academic Reinstatement Process outlined below for readmissions to the college.

Academic Reinstatement Process

If you have satisfied your suspension absence from the college, you may request reinstatement by following these steps:

  • Submit your Request for Reinstatement email to the Dean of Enrollment Services.  If reinstatement to the college is approved, then you must complete the following additional steps.
  • Contact the Financial Aid Office about your eligibility for federal financial aid.  Students may need to submit a satisfactory academic progress appeal and documentation to the Office of Financial Aid to fund their tuition payment,
  • Contact the Business Office to be sure your student account is in good standing, clear of any business holds preventing you from course registration.
  • Make an appointment with your assigned academic advisor to get enrolled into courses.

Dean’s List

The Dean’s List consists of students who have achieved a semester grade point average (GPA) of 3.5 or higher in non-developmental courses.  At the end of each semester, a report is run by the Registrar’s Office and emails are sent to students who have achieved the Dean’s List for that semester.
