The mission of Cosumnes River College is to encourage and educate students to attain their academic goals and move on to prosperous careers. In the pursuit of that mission we are also responsible to hold firm to the standards of rigor and excellence in the academic expectations of our students. When students fail to achieve minimum standards it is our responsibility to set in motion policies and procedures that encourage and support student success. The following Probation and Dismissal Process is designed for student success.
