Every student’s academic progress is reviewed each term by their Program. The Advisor reads the student’s evaluations to assess the student’s academic performance. The entire record is taken into account; a single poor but passing evaluation is not in itself a matter of serious concern. If the student appears to be having difficulty with writing, for example, the Advisor may recommend or require that a writing course be taken. If a great deal of work is Incomplete or if evaluator assessments indicate a pattern of problems, the Advisor meets with the student and communicates the concerns and actions to be taken.
Recommendations may be made informally, or the student officially may be placed on Academic Probation. (See the degree programs sections of this catalog for additional information about each program’s review of student work.)
