Academic Standing

Academic Standing is determined by the student’s institutional academic record. There are two categories of academic status: Academic Probation and Good Standing. Louisiana Delta Community College (LDCC) will inform students of any changes in their academic status at the end of a completed semester or term. Students have the responsibility to know and understand the ramifications of their academic standing prior to the beginning of the next enrollment period. Academic Status is applicable to credit earned at LDCC. Only institutional hours are used when determining academic status.

Good Standing

Students must earn and maintain a 2.00 Adjusted Cumulative grade point average in order to be considered in good standing.

Academic Probation

Students will be placed on Academic Probation whenever their adjusted cumulative grade point averages falls below a 2.00 and grade point average hours are 15 or more.

Once an adjusted cumulative grade point average of 2.00 or higher is achieved, a student will be removed from Academic Probation and the record will reflect Good Standing status.

Academic Status for Visiting Students

LDCC does not implement academic status for visiting students since academic standing should be enforced at the student’s home institution.

Academic Seminar Exemption

transfer student can be considered for exemption from Academic Seminar if one or more of the following criteria are met. If the student:

  • Possesses an earned degree from another college or university 

  • Has transferred 30 or more credit hours of college-level work and has a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher

  • Has successfully completed an equivalent course from another college or university

Developmental Course Sequence

All students entering LDCC must present their ACT/SAT, Accuplacer/Next Generation Accuplacer placement exam scores, or official transcripts as evidence of their proper placement in Math and English. It is imperative that LDCC students complete all developmental courses in a timely fashion. To firmly support their academic preparation and achievement, students in their first semester should enroll in any developmental courses required. They must continue to progress through the sequence until all required courses are complete. Once a sequence is started the student can not test out of the developmental course sequence by retaking the placement exam. 

Intellectual Property

While the Louisiana Community and Technical College System and Louisiana Delta Community College recognize that research and scholarship should be encouraged without regard to potential gain from licensing fees, royalties, or other income, the System and College also recognize that intellectual properties and discoveries may arise from the activities of faculty, staff, and students in the course of their duties or through the use of institutional resources.  The policies governing the administration of such intellectual properties should provide adequate recognition and incentive to developers and, at the same time, ensure that the system institution will share in the rights pertaining to intellectual properties in which they have an equity.  LCTCS institutions are committed to assisting their faculty and other researchers in properly disclosing their scholarly work, in complying with applicable laws and formal agreements, and in gaining the protections available under the United States laws governing patents, copyrights, trademarks, and other appropriate provisions.

Requesting Official Transcripts

All current and previous students of Delta or NELTC can request their official college or GED/HiSET transcript through the College website,
