2019-2020 Undergraduate Academic Catalog

Academic Dismissal

The Academic Review Committee may recommend dismissal to the Dean of the college if a student,

  • earns a semester GPA below a 2.0 while on Academic Probation; or
  • earns a GPA of 1.0 or less during their first semester of study at Lesley; or
  • does not demonstrate the ability to meet degree requirements, including the internship/student teaching requirement of the major, or the Remediation Plan required in the major. 

The Dean will notify the student by email of the Academic Review committee’s recommendation for dismissal and offer the student the opportunity to respond. The student will have five (5) business days from the date of the email notification to submit, by email, a detailed written response to the Dean’s office. The Dean will make the final decision concerning dismissal and will notify the student (by email and U.S. Mail) and the Academic Review committee of the decision. The Dean’s decision is final and may not be appealed.

If a student is dismissed, the financial obligation to the college is governed by the financial regulations stated in the Financial Information section of this catalog.
