El Camino College has two types of probation: Academic Probation and Progress Probation. The purpose of probation is to encourage a student having academic difficulties seek appropriate guidance and support in formulating and achieving goals.

The Student Success Program (SSP) was created to assist students who may be facing academic difficulties. The Student Success Program offers counseling and advising, in addition to a variety of enhancement workshops, and can also connect you with additional support services to help you be successful in college.

Quote of the Month

"It's all about progress, not perfection"
David Perlumutter




The SSP participates in the Midterm Grade Reports each Spring and Fall semester to better assist with the resources available and to complete your probation requirements in order for you to have a successful semester and get back in good standing. If it is reported that you are currently receiving a Grade of D or F in one of your courses, you will be contacted by an SSP Advisor and will have to come in to meet with one of them or a counselor. It is important that you check your ECC email regularly for important notices, deadlines, and to check if you have received an ECC Connect tracking item from one your instructors or other faculty and staff.
