Academic Probation at Lasell University is designed to be educative and constructive; its purpose is to engage students more deliberately in the process of progressing academically.
For Full-Time Students
Students in either the first or second semester of their first year who have a semester GPA of less than 2.0 will be placed on Academic Probation.
All other students who have a semester or a cumulative GPA of less than 2.0 will be placed on Academic Probation.
Any students who have not completed the English Writing requirement at the conclusion of their fourth semester at the University will be placed on academic probation.
All students who have not completed their required math course (as determined by placement) with a grade of 2.0 or better, by the conclusion of their second semester will be placed on Academic Probation.
For Part-Time Students
Matriculated part-time students are placed on probation if their GPA does not meet the same standards specified above for full-time students. The designation of class year for part-time students is based on the number of credits earned, comparable to those used to designate class year for full-time students.
Academic Support for Students on Probation
In order to return to Good Academic Standing, students on Academic Probation are required to meet with their academic advisor on a regular basis, as determined by the advisor in a meeting occurring no later than the first week of classes.
