iBIT Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) Probation and Dismissal

The following information identifies the procedures in the event that a student does not adhere to academic and conduct related expectations.

Academic Probation and Dismissal

Bellevue College is committed to the academic success of its students. We want to quickly identify and alert students with low academic achievement and provide those students with assistance to improve their academic performance. The following is the Academic Probation and Dismissal process for iBIT BAS programs. Bellevue College as a whole has an Academic Standards Procedure (https://www.bellevuecollege.edu/policies/id-3200p/) as well.

Academic WarningAny student who receives a C- or below in an iBIT BAS program course. Student will be sent an Academic Warning and must meet with BAS Program Manager to develop a plan to retake the course.
Academic ProbationAny student earning a second C- or below in an iBIT BAS program course. Student will be put on Academic Probation and must meet with BAS Program Manager to discuss the issue and develop a plan to retake the course.
Academic DismissalAny student earning a third C- or below in an iBIT BAS program course. Student will be notified that they are dismissed from the BAS program and must wait 3 quarters to reapply.

Conduct Related Probation and Dismissal

It is expected that students in the program will conduct themselves by professional standards at all times. In those rare instances where a student violates the BC Student Code or demonstrates inappropriate behavior in a physical or online classroom or clinical setting, the following procedure will be followed:

  1. Unacceptable behavior will be identified and the student will receive a written warning from a faculty member.
  2. If the unacceptable behavior occurs a second time, the student will be placed on probation. The student will be given a written letter outlining the unacceptable behavior and what steps are necessary to rectify the situation.
  3. If the unacceptable behavior continues, the student will be dismissed from the program.
  4. In certain circumstances, depending on the seriousness of the conduct, the student may receive further disciplinary action.

Every student has the right to appeal the disciplinary action.
