Explanation of the Standards of Academic Success

MATC's Standards of Academic Progress Policy requires program students to meet four standards to maintain Good Academic Standing. A student that fails to achieve any of these standards in any semester will be placed on Academic Warning. A student on Academic Warning that fails to meet any of the four standards will be placed on Academic Suspension.

  • Term completion rate of 67%
  • Cumulative completion rate of 67%

Steps To Appeal Your Suspension

First Suspension

  • To be re-instated in the College, complete the online Suspension Appeal Form.
  •  Register for CAREER 799. Once completed, the appeal will be reviewed for financial aid eligibility. 

    If this is your first suspension, you only need to appeal online by completing the Suspension Appeal Form. 
    You will be notified via email of your appeal status.

2 or More Suspensions

  • Complete the online Suspension Appeal Form.
  • Register for the CAREEER 799 Path Workshop if you have not previously completed it. 
  • After completing the online form YOU MUST meet with your program counselor. Make sure to bring (a) your suspension letter, (b) your program plan and (c) any supporting documentation to the campus where your program counselor is located.
  • Appeals must be completed and submitted on or before 
    • 06/07/18 for Summer*
    • 08/10/18 for Fall

      *Summer Semester:Only students that have met both semester GPA and semester completion rate requirements may appeal to attend summer semester.
      The summer appeal must be completed and submitted on or before June 7, 2018.


Dropping of Classes: If your appeal is denied or if you do not submit an appeal, you will be dropped from your classes.

For students with 2 or more suspensions:  If you do not appeal by the deadline your appeal will be reviewed as quickly as possible in the order it was received after you have met with your counselor and your Academic Status will be updated on your program plan. You will also receive an email at your MATC Gmail account.
