Student Retention Services

Support for students on warning, probation or suspension.

We encourage you to engage fully in your academic pursuits at MCC. Student Retention Services staff are available to meet with you by appointment to recommend strategies and campus resources that can help you succeed.

Areas of Focus

  • Academic Warning, Probation, and Suspension Appeals
  • Request for Reinstatement
  • Fresh Start Program
  • Retaking a Course for a Fourth Time

Academic Outcome Report

Letters are sent to your college email address at the end of each semester with detailed information on your current academic standing and credit restrictions. Please contact the Financial Aid Office, Veterans OASIS or other payment sources to discuss the impact of your academic standing on your ability to pay for your course(s).

Have More Questions About Academic Policies and Resources on Campus?

Come to one of our Tools for Success group meetings on campus. You can even bring a family member, friend or any other supporters in your life.

These group meetings are available to students regardless of current academic standing and provide an overview of services at Manchester Community College. Our aim is to ensure all students are successful and have the tools they need to graduate.

To attend the next Tools for Success group meeting, please register now.


Cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA), as well as academic progress, can affect academic standing. Based on cumulative GPA,  a student’s academic standing is in jeopardy if:

Cumulative Credit Hours Cumulative Grade Point Average Academic Status
Less than 12 0.0-1.49 Warning
12-30.99 0.0-1.69 Probation*
31 or more 0.0-1.99 Probation*

*Students who are on academic probation and who, at the close of the next semester in which the student is registered, have not attained the overall GPA to move back into good standing have earned suspension for one fifteen-week semester.

A student may return to MCC after suspension by meeting with the Student Retention Coordinator. As long as a student is progressing in both policy areas, they may put in a Request for Reinstatement by the announced deadline date each semester.

Continual W, I, UF and F Grades can spiral a student into Progress Probation. A student will be placed on Progress Suspension after four consecutive semesters of Progress Probation.
