Suspension and Dismissal Policy
As of Spring 2015, there has been a change in terminology relating to the SAS Dismissal Policy, but the policy itself has not changed. What was formerly termed “First Dismissal” is now called “Suspension”. What was formerly termed “Second Dismissal” is now called “Dismissal”.
Students whose academic performance has deteriorated to the point of Dismissal present myriad reasons for their poor performance. The goal of the Dismissal policy is not to punish students in academic difficulty but rather to help guide them toward a pathway to academic success.
