Probation & Disqualification

Steps to Clear Probation Hold

Foothill College has five levels of academic probation.

Students placed on probation will receive an e-mail from Admissions and Records notifying them of their probation level and intervention activity needed to have the hold removed from their student account.

  • NOTE: Probation holds are cleared within 3-5 business days of the date the activity is completed (excluding weekends and school holidays).
  • RECOMMENDATION:  Complete your probation activity at least TWO WEEKS before any important registration deadlines to avoid delays. 
  • PRO TIP:  Fall 2021 course registration opens July 12, 2021. Complete your probation activity right away so that your ability to register or change classes is not affected before school starts.

Students are strongly advised to complete the intervention before their Fall 2021 registration date.
