2020-2022 Catalog and Student Handbook

Suspension

There are three types of suspension: Academic, Non-Academic and Financial Aid.

Academic Suspension

Students may attend Mitchell Tech for one semester on academic warning. If the student fails to achieve a cumulative 2.0 GPA during the warning semester, the student will be placed on academic suspension. During a warning semester, students may continue to receive financial aid as long as all financial aid requirements have been met.

All students accepted into a program of study who fail to achieve a cumulative GPA of 1.0 during their first semester of enrollment will be suspended with no academic warning. This type of suspension MAY NOT be appealed.

Students who have been suspended must wait at least one semester of full time enrollment before applying for re-enrollment. Students who re-enroll after suspension will be automatically placed on academic warning. Students may be suspended from a program twice. Registration will not be accepted a third time.

Students who have attended two consecutive semesters may appeal academic suspension. The appeal process is initiated by the student who must complete a Suspension Appeal Form available from the Dean of Student Success by the date specified on their notification of academic suspension. If the suspended student’s appeal is successful, the student will be placed on academic warning and will remain enrolled at Mitchell Tech for the following semester. The student on appeal will be required to meet with Student Success staff on a regular basis.

Non-Academic Suspension

Students may be suspended for other reasons including, but not limited to failed drug tests, disciplinary reasons, policy violations, etc.

Financial Aid Suspension

A student will be placed on Financial Aid Suspension who does not satisfactorily remove himself/herself from Financial Aid Warning and does not complete a term of acceptable academic work.  See Failure to Maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress; Financial Aid Warning and Financial Aid Suspension in the Paying for School section.

Please note: A student placed on suspension will be notified in writing. A copy of that correspondence will be placed in the student’s permanent file.
