**Good academic standing is defined solely for assigning enrollment priority as a student who is not on Probation 2 status has not been placed on academic or progress probation or more serious academic sanction for two consecutive terms. Students who are on probation for two consecutive semesters will lose enrollment priority for the next semester or summer session.
Educational plan is each student's guide to what they need to do to achieve his/her goals.
Initial educational plan is a 1 or 2 semester educational plan that may be created by the student or with the assistance of a counselor. This is not an approved educational plan.
Comprehensive educational plan covers all of the terms needed for student’s to achieve their course of study. This is the approved educational plan that students must have by the time they complete 15 units of coursework.
