Absences and Tardies
The College believes that regular class attendance is essential to learning. We do understand that there might be necessary absences; however you cannot be absent from any class more than three weeks in a semester. Absences in excess of this amount constitute failure and withdrawal of the student from the course.
Punctuality in all classes is required.
The Academic Council may recommend that a student be dismissed from college if he/she fails to function as a serious student.
The cumulative grade point average (CGPA) is computed by dividing the total honor points earned by the total semester hours attempted, including F grades, but not including I, NC, S, or W grades. A CGPA of at least 2.00 is required for graduation in any degree program. To be eligible to participate in co-curricular activities and to avoid being placed on academic probation, students must meet the minimum standards for satisfactory academic progress.
Any student who does not meet these minimum standards will be placed on academic probation and will be limited to no more than a normal course load (15 hours). A student who is on academic probation is not permitted to participate in any co-curricular activity, such as athletics, music groups, Songfest, drama productions, and student publications nor will he/she be allowed to hold an office in any club or student organization. At the completion of the next semester, every student on academic probation will be reviewed. One of the following three actions will be taken:

Academic suspension means that the student may not enroll for the subsequent fall or spring semester, and may lose eligibility for federal financial aid. Any student on academic suspension who wishes to re-enroll at York College may do so if one of the following criteria has been met:
