Welcome to Clover Park Technical College
Student Statement of Understanding
I, ____________________________________, am responsible for taking the following actions:
1. Inform the certifying official immediately of changes to my student status, including
but not limited to:
Change of program
Change of course load (reduction/increase of classes/credits)
Withdrawal from classes
Change of address/contact information
2. Follow the official withdrawal procedures of the college if I should decide to withdraw
from a course, withdraw from the college, or take a leave of absence.
3. Maintain standards of satisfactory academic progress as set forth by the college.
These policies are intended to support a successful learning experience at Clover
Park Technical College. At the end of each quarter, grades of all students enrolled in
that quarter will be reviewed.
Any student whose quarterly GPA is under 2.0 will be encouraged to take advantage of the
assistance provided by the college to help assure student success. Students using state
waiver may lose eligibility for the waiver until their GPA is above a 2.0.
VA will not pay for classes that are not on your Education Plan. VA will not pay for you
to re-take a course you have already taken that meets a requirement on your Education Plan.
Once you are registered for classes, if you withdraw or increase your credit load without
notifying the VA Certifying Official, you will be responsible for the overpayment that will
occur. If you have changes that you would like to make to your schedule, do not do it online
or go to Enrollment Services/Registration. You must see the VA Certifying Official in building
17, room 220.
The following guidelines has been established to ensure academic standards are
Step 1: The first quarter in which the grade point average (GPA) is less than 2.0, the student
will receive a notification of the level of academic achievement. The student may not be
allowed to continue to the next course in accordance with established program prerequisites.
Step 2: If the student experiences two consecutive quarters of work in which the GPA is less
than 2.0, the student will be placed on academic probation for the following quarter of
Step 3: If a student experiences three consecutive quarters of work in which the GPA is less
than 2.0, the student will be suspended from attendance at the college and may not register
for the next academic quarter.
Students placed on academic probation or suspension may appeal to the academic review
committee for reassessment if they believe that unusual circumstances beyond their control
were the cause of their low academic achievement.
Financial aid recipients are subject to the satisfactory progress policy. Reinstatement to the
college following one quarter of academic suspension requires the student to meet with
Advising & Counseling to develop an educational plan. Upon reinstatement, the student will
resume classes on academic probation.
Step 4: Submit your class schedule once you have registered for your classes online. Please
make sure you have signed and dated the bottom of your schedule before you submit it.
Please sign and date and return this sheet to the VA Office.
I understand that failure to carry out all of the above may result in suspension of my education
benefits and subject me to liability for recovery of overpayment.
I, _______________________________________, have reviewed and understand all the
items above, have secured answers to my questions and certify that I will comply with all
regulations set forth by the Department of Veterans Affairs and Clover Park Technical College.
