and enroll in classes. To continue enrollment at colleges in the District (Cañada College, Skyline College and
College of San Mateo) students must be in academic good standing as defined in the San Mateo County Com-
munity College Rules and Regulations. This means maintaining an overall GPA of 2.0 or better and overall com-

1. After the Reinstatement Workshop, a student must meet with a counselor to create a Student Educational
Plan (SEP) for the following semester.
2. A student on Dismissal Status is limited to .5 to 6 units.
Reinstatement and the specific class enrollments must be approved by a counselor and the Dean of
Counseling. A response identifying enrollment conditions will be emailed to the student.
3. A student may express enrollment needs (i.e., full-time status for insurance needs, financial aid needs, or
athletics programs, etc). However, these needs are not considered when a student is on dismissal status.
Unit limitations identified in #1 are upheld.
4. Often, dismissed students are required to complete a CRER or COUN course and/or study skills course
appropriate to the educational goal and/or academic history.
5. Reinstatement is provisional for a term but a student remains on dismissal status until the GPA is a 2.0 or
higher and the course completion rate is at least 51%. While on dismissal status, a student must petition
for reinstatement every semester.
6. A student on dismissal status may be dismissed and not allowed to register for classes in the San Mateo
County Community College District for the next semester if the student does not:
