Academic Probation

Students not meeting the criteria for Good Academic Standing will be put on Academic Probation for the next academic semester. A student who does not meet either of the two criteria for Good Academic Standing for a second successive semester will be academically dismissed from the Institute.

In addition, any day student that is put on Probation for a second non-consecutive semester in their academic career at Wentworth may be subject to academic dismissal. Students will be notified in writing that they have been academically dismissed at the conclusion of each semester. Students who have been academically dismissed may appeal the decision in writing to the Academic Appeals Committee in care of the Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning.

Students on Probation are encouraged to take advantage of the resources of the Institute including their academic advisor, the Center for Teaching and Learning, and the Counseling Center, to develop strategies for success in their academic life. Students on Probation must meet all of the requirements outlined on the probation checklist.

Students who take classes at Wentworth (including Colleges of the Fenway courses) in a third (non-scheduled) semester for the purpose of improving their GPA may petition to have their probationary status reviewed following the posting of their final grades in the classes. Petitions should be addressed to the Office of the Provost in care of the Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning. (Please note that transfer credit grades are not factored into your GPA.)
