You may not be aware that dismissal for scholastic reasons may severely restrict your choices of universities and programs in the future.  If you are on financial aid, veteran’s assistance, or a family health insurance policy, you run the risk of losing that assistance. Please take advantage of the opportunity for assistance and guidance that can be gained from academic advisors and faculty so you can avoid a more serious situation in the future. 


What is Academic Dismissal?

If students on Academic Probation or Continued Academic Probation at one of the Alamo Colleges fail to earn a semester  GPA of 2.0 they will be placed on Academic Dismissal. Students placed on Academic Dismissal will receive ACES email notification from the Alamo Colleges.


To learn more about the requirements to be considered for re-admission after an Academic Dismissal, please view the information on the links below:
