LSC-University Park PASS Program

What is the PASS Program?

The LSC-University Park PASS Program, which stands for Providing Academic Support to Students, specifically serves those students with academic holds (Academic Probation or Academic Suspension). Students must plan to take classes for the upcoming semester at LSC-University Park. The PASS program is an intervention plan individually designed to help students improve academically and develop skills to sustain academic success in college and in life.

The academic holds result from one of the following circumstances:

Academic Probation:

Academic Probation is given to students who have been on Academic Warning in the past and have earned a cumulative GPA of less than 2.0. A hold has been placed on your student account to prohibit future enrollment until you have met with a PASS Advisor. To be in good standing students must have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher.

Academic Suspension:

Academic Suspension is given to students who have been placed on Academic Warning and Academic Probation in the past and have since earned a cumulative GPA lower than 2.0. To be in good standing students must have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher.

 *You have the right to appeal your academic suspension. If you choose to exercise this right, you must follow the appeal process specified by the campus at which majority of your courses have been completed. For more information on the appeal process contact the advising office.
