Mission: Lane Community College is committed to supporting all certificate and degree seeking students in attaining identified academic and career goals by monitoring progress and completion of attempted credits and minimum grade point average for each term enrolled.
CORE Purpose: Academic Progress Standards (APS) identifies students not making progress towards established goals. In an effort to support student success, APS strives to provide proactive services, resources, and learning opportunities for students who have not met academic progress standards. These appropriate and timely interventions focus on promoting student success.
Narrative: Lane provides a series of progressive interventions (Alert 1: Keys to Success Online, Alert 2: Keys to Success In-Person Workshop, Alert 3: Back on Course (1 credit class), Alert 4: Academic Dismissal) to its students not meeting Academic Progress Standards (APS). The strategic interventions are designed to:
- identify and address barriers or obstacles interfering with progress and completion of academic goals
- develop and implement personalized success/action plans
- teach, mentor, and coach students to utilize success practices
- assess and track individual student achievement
- properly refer students to appropriate student support services and resources
- increase student retention
- facilitate timely transfer to respective institutions, programs, and the workforce
- promote degree and award completion
Academic Progress Standards are based on academic performance for each individual term. Attaining a minimum GPA of 2.0 and completing at least 67% of attempted credits each term ensures Good Academic Standing. Should a student fall below either of these performance indicators, an Alert Status will be activated and the student will be required to complete an intervention listed above.
At the end of every term, the College will review each student's progress. The following identifies the required interventions if a student does not meet these standards:
|Term||GPA||Completion Rate||Academic Standing||Intervention|
|1st||Less than 2.0||Less than 67%||Alert 1||Requires completion of Keys to Success Workshop (online) accessed on your Moodle page|
|2nd||Less than 2.0||Less than 67%||Alert 2||Requires Keys to Success Workshop (in-person)|
|3rd||Less than 2.0||Less than 67%||Alert 3||Requires enrollment in College Success: Back On Course (1 credit)|
|4th||Less than 2.0||Less than 67%||Requires Alert 4 Information Session and Petition to Return|
Special Note: Attempted credits include all credits a student is enrolled in at the beginning of the second week of the term, after the Refund Deadline. Refund deadlines for summer terms can vary. Check the Refund Schedule for details.
