Academic Success

The Triton College Advising Department is focused on providing support to students struggling academically or students placed on academic warning due to poor performance. Students are encouraged to schedule an appointment with their curriculum advisor as soon as possible to take steps toward achieving academic success.

The Standards of Academic Progress Policy outlines disciplinary actions taken for students completing less than 50 percent of their attempted course load or with a cumulative GPA less than 2.0. The Standards of Academic Progress Policy is available in the current Triton College Catalog.
