  1. Have a cumulative weighted GPA of 3.5;
  2. Have completed two years of high school English with a grade of ‘C’ or higher;

  1. Continue to make progress toward high school graduation, and
  2. Maintain a 2.0 GPA in college coursework after completing two courses. Students who fall below a cumulative academic* 2.0 GPA at RCC will not be eligible for future college courses.      
    (* a student’s academic GPA does not include any penalization for course grades of “W”; however, students also have a financial aid GPA that factors in a course withdrawal as a grade of “F”, so students are encouraged to think VERY carefully before withdrawing from any courses as this action may negatively affect their future financial aid availability after high school graduation.)
