When previously recorded college work is substandard (grades of "D", "F", or "No Credit"), and not reflective of the student's present level of demonstrated ability, a student may petition the Director of Admissions and Records to have the substandard college work disregarded. To petition, the following conditions must be met:
A student who presents an official transcript of previous college or university credit may receive credit toward the associate degree from Mendocino College, if the institution was accredited at the time of attendance.
Notification of Probation and dismissal will be mailed to the student at his/her address of record within a month of distribution of the previous semester's grades. Students will be urged to make an appointment to see a counselor. The student will be advised, on the notification of probation, when and how to remove themselves from probation or dismissal.
Mendocino College recognizes that people have equivalent learning experiences in many non-traditional learning experiences. Policies for providing such evaluations include: Credit by Examination, formal military service schools, and military service.
Final grade reports are prepared at the end of each semester and may be obtained through WebAdvisor at https://webadvisor.mendocino.edu . The cumulative grade point average (GPA) is computed by dividing the total number of units a student has attempted into the total number of grade points the student has earned.
Academic Probation - A student who has attempted at least 12 cumulative semester units at Mendocino College as shown by the official academic record shall be placed on academic probation if the student has earned a grade point average of less than 2.0 in all units which were graded on the basis of the Mendocino College grading scale. Progress Probation - A student who was enrolled in a total of at least 12 cumulative semester units at Mendocino College as shown by the official academic record shall be placed on progress probation when the percentage of all units in which entries of "W", "I" and "NC" are recorded reaches or exceeds 50%.
To earn the semester honors designation students must complete, in one semester, a total of twelve (12) units which include no grade of D or F. Credit/No Credit grades are not considered as part of the twelve units.
