Don’t Let Academic Struggles Hold You Back: How Todd Spodek Can Help
Going to college is an exciting time for most people. It’s a chance to explore new ideas and learn valuable skills that can set the stage for a successful career. However, with expectations as high as they are at Boston College, even the brightest and most ambitious students can run into trouble when it comes to maintaining academic standards. If you’re struggling to meet those standards and facing dismissal, Todd Spodek and his Education Law team are here to help you.
Understanding Academic Progression at Boston College
Boston College has high expectations for its students, but sometimes circumstances get in the way of meeting those expectations. Whether it’s a difficult class, extenuating personal circumstance, or an illness that impacts your ability to keep up with your studies, there are times when you need help navigating the school’s academic policies. At Boston College, that means understanding how to maintain good standing while avoiding academic dismissal.
The Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences is the largest undergraduate program at BC and where most academic standards adhere. According to policy, students remain in “good” standing as long as they maintain a minimum 1.67 GPA. Unfortunately, falling below that standard causes immediate academic withdrawal without warning.
The first step toward reinstatement would involve appealing directly to your Associate Dean though such an appeal won’t always be granted. Should your appeal be approved, you’ll enter probation status for one semester; during which you must successfully complete 12 credit hours with a minimum GPA of 2.0 or else face final dismissal from the school.
Dealing With Academic Standing Decisions
If you fall short of these criteria or feel there were extenuating circumstances surrounding your academic failure, there are other ways to understand and navigate college bureaucracy in order to receive the help you need and fight back against dismissal.
|Formal Appeal to Your Associate Dean||Your vote towards academic reinstatement.|
|Complaint Against Instructor In Case of Mistreatment/Low Grades||A complaint against an instructor who mistreated a student or awarded them low grades for unreasonable reasons.|
|Negotiations with Professors for Better Grades||Renegotiate grade points concerning certain areas of concern regarding academic progress.|
The appeals process provides formal means of regaining good standing with Boston College. At this point it becomes extremely useful to bring in outside assistance that understands the intricacies associated with such an appeal.
