Academic dismissal is normally considered a permanent separation from the College (not just a school of the College), ordinarily imposed when there is indication of poor probability of academic success. Students may be dismissed from the College if they fail to meet the satisfactory academic progress standards within one semester of being placed on probation or fail to observe the restrictions imposed during probation. Students may also be dismissed from the College when they receive failing grades in all credits attempted in any one semester. Academic Dismissal is noted on the student transcript.
A student may appeal a dismissal decision to the dean of the student’s school within 14 days of the notification date. The decision becomes final after 14 days. After dismissal, a student may request an exception to the policy and the dismissal by applying for reinstatement to the dean of the school imposing the dismissal. All reinstatement decisions made by a dean will be reviewed and approved by the provost.
