Helpful links for Ancell Students
Why do I have to meet with an advisor? Advisors can offer much more than a PIN number.
Ancell academic probation letters from the Dean are sent at the end of the semester to each first semester freshman with a grade-point average below 2.0 and to all other students with averages below 2.3. If you are placed on Ancell probation, you must meet with an at-risk adviser who will review your program requirements, course selections, credit loads, and other pertinent information and assist in developing a plan to improve your academic performance. You must continue to meet with your at-risk advisor as scheduled and make acceptable progress to achieving you plan goals.
The probationary period will commence the semester following the one for which the letter of probation was issued. The Dean will review the student's activities during the period of probation.
Probation is for one semester only. If you do not make acceptable progress by the end of the first semester that you are on probation, you may be dismissed from the Ancell School for academic deficiency. Full-time students on probation should consider a semester course load of 12 credit hours and limit their participation in extra-curricular activities. Appeals to these policies should be made to the Ancell Dean who, for extenuating circumstances only, may waive the policy. Students dismissed from the Ancell School who are not on university suspension may apply to another WCSU School by filling out an application for change of major form.
Note: Individual Schools or programs may have standards for probation and dismissal from the school or program which are higher than the University's standards. A student can be on probation or be dismissed from a School or program and still be in good standing at the University.
