Don’t Let Academic Struggles Slow You Down: Todd Spodek Can Help
As a college student, you have already put in an immense amount of hard work and discipline just to get to where you are now. But unfortunately, the road ahead isn’t going to get any easier. In fact, Michigan State University has a set of standards that make sure you continue to prove yourself all over again throughout your college journey. Todd Spodek, a National Student Defense attorney-advisor, understands that academic struggles may come in the way of your success and his goal is to ensure that it doesnt.
Maintaining A Good Standing
Michigan State University expects its students to maintain a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or higher at all times. If you’re able to do that, then great; you’ll remain in good standing”. But if for some reason there’s been a slump in your GPA and it dips below 2.0, then things can get complicated.
The immediate effect of a low GPA is being placed on probation. At this stage, students are usually required to meet with an academic advisor before they can register for classes again. This period lasts until their GPAs rise above 2.0 and they return to good standing.
Final Probation Status
But if after one semester on probation the GPA still hovers below 2.0, students are moved into “final probation.” Here, they must meet specific requirements outlined by their college or school advisors.
Struggle To Complete Major Requirements?
If failing major requirements or not meeting program-specific GPA targets becomes an issue for students during their course of study at MSU, they will receive a warning for lack of satisfactory progress in the major,” which means that additional coursework might be required along with lower-division courses before reinstatement of your original curriculum plan can occur.
If a student is still motivated to succeed but is unable to meet the requirements while in final probation status, then they will be recessed from the university for a minimum of one calendar year.
Dismissing From The University Entirely
If upon returning to MSU, their GPA remains below 2.0 for the third-time or they once again struggle after receiving warnings and on probation, students will be dismissed from the university.
Help Is On Hand – Todd Spodek
Sometimes life has a funny way of intervening, and no matter how hard you try, it becomes difficult to meet these strict requirements set by the universities.
This is why students who are struggling should know that there’s help available out there. And Todd Spodek provides exactly that help. Legal representation can indeed play an integral role when dealing with academic difficulties.
Appealing Against Standing Decisions
At Michigan State University, standing decisions are based on GPA at the end of every semester reviewed by its respective colleges or schools’ officials who make decisions about any possible standing sanctions imposed. Unfair treatment by an instructor can result in grade revision where formal means of challenging a decision does not exist; this might sometimes be due just to grading errors or miscalculations.
However, one can file a grievance if her/his grade is lower than expected due to academic misconduct charges.
Grade Negotiation Option:
Instructors at Michigan State University may offer negotiation options such as assigning extra credit or even makeup work if requested nicely; especially in cases where grades are borderline or have compelling reasons why some assignments were left unfinished.
