Departmental Probation

Departmental probation establishes performance conditions that must be met for continued success in a given position and/or department. Departmental probation is not centrally formalized or recorded and does not affect participation in College activities; it does, however, establish a mechanism of warning for the student that his or her standing in the department is in jeopardy and that continued problems may result in release or even labor probation.  The Labor Program Office should be notified any time a supervisor is seeking to place a student on Departmental Probation in order to prepare an appropriate accountability agreement for the student and in particular whenever a department is seeking to place a first-year student on departmental probation so that appropriate interventions can be arranged.
