A dean’s review serves as an early academic alert that allows faculty to document and relay significant concerns related to academic performance prior to midterm grades.

Upon receipt of the form, the class dean will meet with the student to determine the stressors impacting their behavior, connect the student to appropriate resources, and formulate a plan to improve in the course. If the student continues to miss class in excess of the formal warning without an excuse, faculty can notify the class dean, prompting the student’s mandatory withdrawal from the course.

The deadline for students to withdraw from individual courses this semester is Tues., Nov. 14.
