You could check the school's course policy. Schools can impose their own specific conditions, such as attaining a certain grade in a course, etc. If you have an academic advisor, maybe they could help explain your rights. Good luck

Bruce Alexander Minnick answered on Aug 12, 2019

Yes. As you know, you are required to check in periodically with your probation officer--who is required to go looking for you if you fail to show up as required. So your probation officer certainly can "give out personal information to someone" when looking for you.

Q: Is a stipulation signed by all parties concerned a contract
Nicholas Nelson
