Probation & Disqualification

Probation FAQs

Q. Where can I see what level of probation I am on?

Log into MyPortal and click on the  “Registration” tab. Click “View Holds” in “Registration Tools” box on left.

Q. How do I know which activity to do?

If you are a current student who was recently placed on probation after last quarter, you will receive an e-mail with specific instructions on which probation activity to complete and steps to get started. If you are returning to Foothill and need to clear your probation hold, email us with your name and CWID. We will help you with the next steps.

Q. I am a student at Foothill, but plan on taking classes at De Anza next quarter. Can they clear my hold?

If you are on probation at Foothill College, you need to first complete our probation activity so we can clear the hold in MyPortal for you. 

Q. I previously completed a Level 1 probation activity and am now on Level 1 probation again. Do I have to complete the activity again?

Yes, the information will be a good refresher and is the only way to clear the hold.

Q. What is affected if I have a probation hold on my student account?

If you have an active probation hold on your student account, you cannot use the registration system nor see you unofficial transcripts in your student registration app in MyPortal. Once you successfully complete the probation activity and you hold is cleared, you may resume using these functions in the app. 

Q. Who do I contact if I have questions?
