Residence Hall Students Academic Guidelines
All students must be enrolled in a minimum of 12 semester hours to live in the residence hall.
Any student who is enrolled at Copiah-Lincoln must maintain a 2.0 GPA or better to be eligible for campus housing. All residence hall students who are in noncompliance with these GPA standards at midterm (9 weeks) will be sent a written warning of their residence hall status. Notification of noncompliance of these regulations will be made by the Dean of Student Services.
Any student in noncompliance with the GPA requirements at midterm will be required to attend counseling and study-aid programs one night a week under the direction of the Dean of Student Services. The study-aid program schedule will be posted in residence halls and classrooms in advance of such times. If students are in noncompliance at the end of the semester, they will lose campus housing privileges.
Any person may appeal dismissal from campus housing. Such appeal must be in writing and directed to the Dean of Student Services.
Any appeal by students not meeting these requirements will be directed to the dormitory appeals committee, which consists of the Housing Director, the student’s residence hall host or hostess, and the Dean of Student Services. This policy was endorsed by the Student Government Association in the spring of 1993.
