Academic Probation and Suspension
LSSC students who encounter the message “Academic Standing Prohibits Registration” when trying to register in LOIS have an academic status that has fallen into one of three categories: Probation, Continued Probation, or Suspension.
What You Need to Know
Your Lake-Sumter State College Cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA), including transfer grades, will be used to determine academic progress.
- Good Standing, An all college GPA of at least 2.0 with seven or more credits attempted.
- Probation, Students who have attempted seven (7) or more college credits with less than a 2.0 all-College GPA (excluding college preparatory courses) will be placed on Probation for their next term of enrollment.

- Continued Probation, Continued Probation will occur when the student earns a minimum 2.0 term GPA and the all college GPA remains below a 2.0. The student will return to Good Standing when the all-College GPA is a 2.0 or higher.
- Suspension, Students will progress to suspension for one semester if the term and all-College GPA fall below a 2.0. Students who return after suspension will be placed on continued probation. Students suspended again will be academically dismissed for a period of one calendar year if the all-college GPA falls below 2.0
