Academic Holds

Academic and Program Advisors are committed to our purpose to "empower students to become full participants in their academic planning, career goals and lifelong learning." Academic Standards is an important part of it. We want to help you succeed! If you are in academic difficulty, we are here to help you.

Academic Warning (P1)

If you are on Academic Warning (P1) and the Office of the Registrar has placed a registration hold on your student records, you will not be able to register or change your registration until you meet with an Academic or Program Advisor.

Conditional Enrollment (P2)

If you are on Conditional Enrollment (P2) and the Office of the Registrar has placed a registration hold on your student records, you will not be able to register or change your registration until you meet with an Academic or Program Advisor.

Academic Probation (P3)

If you are on Academic Probation (P3) and the Office of the Registrar has placed a registration hold on your student records, you will not be able to register or change your registration until you complete the Academic Standards Appeal Process. To begin the appeal process, you must make an appointment with one of the Academic Standards Advisors.


You must make a one-hour appointment because during that visit, you and the advisor will be able to:

  • Reflect on your priorities and goals
  • Reflect on how serious your obstacles are toward obtaining an education
  • Analyze the strategies to assist you in completing your goals
  • Determine if a registration appeal will be possible to change “E” grades into “W” grades
  • Identify classes that can be repeated to raise your GPA
  • Review course outlines and learning outcomes to identify educational gaps
  • Review your educational plan
  • Identify deficiencies in learning skills
  • Refer you to resources available on campus and in the community

Please remember that Salt Lake Community College graduation requires a 2.0 Grade Point Average (GPA). Your performance is important in attaining your degree as well as transferring to a four-year institution or finding gainful employment. We want to help you raise your GPA above 2.0 and see you succeed in your academic goals.
