Progression Standards for F-1 International Students on TMCC’s I-20

In order to maintain full-time student status, International students with F-l visas on TMCC’s I-20 must meet the following grade point average, attendance and credit completion requirements.

  1. SATISFACTORY PROGRESS REPORT:

    The student must enroll in and maintain a minimum of 12 unit hours per academic semester. In certain circumstances enrollment in fewer than 12 units may be approved by the foreign student’s advisor. If a student fails to maintain the 12 units, he/she may need to be reinstated to F-1 status by U.S.C.I.S.

    The student must maintain a grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 and make satisfactory academic progress to remain in good standing. 

  2. ACADEMIC STANDARDS:
    For purposes of meeting academic performance as outlined in this policy, letter grades are interpreted as the following definitions and categories:
    1. A course will be considered complete if a grade of “A,” B,” “C,” “D,” “F,” “S,” “U,” or “P” is awarded.
    2. A course will not be considered complete if a grade of “W,” “I,” “IP,” “AD,” “NR,” or “X” is awarded.
  3. ATTENDANCE:
    Students are expected to attend all classes for which they have registered. Progress reports are required each semester to verify attendance and progress in each course.
