Maximizing Academic Progress Program (MAPP)
The Maximizing Academic Progress Program (MAPP) assists students whose cumulative GPA has fallen below a 2.0. Students in this status are required to meet with an Academic Advisor to develop an individualized plan for success. An Unsatisfactory Progress Hold will be placed on students’ records before the probation deadline for the term (see Registration Guide “Important Dates” for exact deadline). This includes regular classes (i.e., 16-week) and all express and flex entryclasses.
Students who do not earn a cumulative 2.0 GPA will be placed on one of the following academic actions:
Good Academic Standing
Indicates a student has earned a cumulative GPA of a 2.0 or higher.
Indicates a student has earned a term GPA of at least a 2.0.
Academic Warning occurs immediately following the first semester students do not maintain Good Academic Standing. A hold will be placed on the students’ registration status requiring them to meet with an Academic Advisor. Students will be limited to a maximum 13 credit hours for a full-term semester and 13 hours for a summer semester. Students will complete a MAPP Contract and Personal Academic Action Plan. Students will submit a Progress Report (PR) prior to the semester withdraw date (see Registration Guide “Important Dates” for exact deadline). Students entering Academic Warning for a Maymester term will only be permitted to enroll in a Learning Frameworks class. Students will be removed from Academic Warning the semester that Good Academic Standing is achieved.
Academic Probation occurs immediately following Academic Warning. Students, who do not raise their cumulative GPA up to a 2.0, will be required to meet with an Academic Advisor prior to next terms registration. Students will be limited to a maximum 13 credit hours for a full-term semester and 13 credit hours for a summer semester. Students will complete a MAPP Contract and the Continual Academic Action Plan in conjunction with a Learning Frameworks class (EDUC 1300 or PSYC 1300) or Learning and Study Strategies Inventory (LASSI). Students will submit a Progress Report (PR) prior to the semester withdrawal date (see Registration Guide “Important Dates” for exact deadline). Students entering Academic Probation for a Maymester term will only be permitted to enroll in a Learning Frameworks class. If students maintain Academic Progress, they will be able to continue to enroll for future semesters and complete a Progress Report untilGood Academic Standing is achieved.
Academic Suspension (one year)
Academic Suspension occurs when students on Academic Probation do not maintain Academic Progress. Students on Academic Suspension cannot enroll for one (1) academic year.
Students who participate in early registration and do not maintain Academic Progress by the end of the semester, they will be dropped from their classes for the subsequent semester and will be placed on Academic Suspension.
Students placed on Academic Suspension have the right to appeal to the Academic Progress Appeals Committee (APAC). The appeal process allows students to appeal a suspension for unsatisfactory academic progress based upon: (a) the death of a relative, (b) an injury or illness of the student or (c) extenuating circumstances. Students can only appeal one (1) time during their tenure at Collin.
After one year of Academic Suspension, students can reapply to Collin College under an Academic Probation status and must continue to maintain Academic Progress each semester. Students must meet with an Academic Advisor to obtain a MAPP contract, Continual Action Plan, and Progress Report before the probation deadline.
Transfer students on Probation, Suspension or Dismissal from Other Colleges
