A student's enrollment at CBC is a partnership among the student, the College, and the state of Washington. CBC has a responsibility to each student, but also to the state that helps fund each student's college education, to develop standards of academic progress and performance. The College utilizes various resources and support programs to assist students toward successful academic performance and program completion:
CBC does not intend to discourage or penalize students who are sincerely trying to make good use of the College's resources. Nevertheless, there may be instances when the College may determine that a student is not benefiting from continued enrollment. In such cases, the College may take steps to do either of the following:
Academic Performance Policy
CBC's Academic Performance Policy includes both grade performance and credit completion components. Students in a degree or certificate program must maintain a minimum cumulative, college-level grade point average (CLVL) of 2.00. Additionally, excessive withdrawals from classes are problematic as they delay students' completion and decrease the College's ability to efficiently manage class enrollment.
Students who have a cumulative, college-level GPA (CLVL) below 2.00 will be placed on academic probation that could progress to academic dismissal if subsequent academic performance does not improve. CBC may block students' ability to register for future classes until they have met specific intervention requirements. When students improve their CLVL to 2.00 or higher, they will be removed from unsatisfactory performance status. However, the College reserves the right to continue to monitor student progress and performance as it deems appropriate.

Distress to Success (DTS)
The Distress to Success (DTS) online presentation is designed to help students in academic difficulty who have not earned a college-level cumulative GPA of 2.00 or higher. The goal of this presentation is to provide tips and resources to help you increase your GPA and thus be more successful in college.
