Academic Probation

Academic probation is a serious matter. Students who do not clear academic probation by the end of the next semester (fall or spring) of enrollment will be subject to dismissal by the College of Letters & Science. It is very important for students to meet with a College Adviser to understand their academic status and make sure they are aware of the steps they should take to return to good academic standing.
