Academic Progress Standards General Information
Lane provides a series of progressive interventions to students who are not meeting the college's Academic Progress Standards (APS). The interventions are designed to help students:
- know the difference between Academic Progress Standards that apply to all students and Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards;
- understand how making good academic progress relates to finishing College in less time, with less cost, and with more positive outcomes;
- examine the many reasons that students end a term without achieving APS;
- connect with other students who understand the challenges in College;
- discover strategies that will address barriers and promote success;
- learn about resources Lane offers to help students overcome these obstacles;
- develop a personalized plan for success that helps students achieve goals and satisfy academic standards.
Academic Progress Standards are based on academic performance for each term. Students are required to attain a minimum GPA of 2.0 and complete at least 67% of the credits that they enroll in each term. If a student falls below either of these performance indicators, they will be placed in Alert Status and will be required to complete an intervention as listed below.
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.
