Academic Probation

Academic Probation at Lasell College 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 College 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.
Restrictions for Student on Academic Warning/Probation

Students who are not in Good Academic Standing (on Academic Warning or Academic Probation) will receive notification from the Dean of Advising and First Year Programs. Students who do not meet the criteria for return to Good Academic Standing the following semester may be suspended from the College. Students are ineligible for Study Abroad if they are not in Good Academic Standing. Students (full and part-time) who are not in Good Academic Standing will be required to curtail their participation in the co-curricular life of the campus in the following ways:

  • Students on Academic Probation may not register for more than 15 credits.
  • Students who are serving in an executive board position in a recognized student organization (i.e., whose names appear on the "Officer Roster" as submitted to the Office of Student Affairs) will be considered to be in a probationary status for that semester.
  • No student organization officer may remain on probationary status for two consecutive semesters.
  • Students who are not in Good Academic Standing will not be permitted to stand as candidates for an executive board position in a student organization.
  • Students who are not in Good Academic Standing may not participate as members of an intercollegiate athletic team (in keeping with NCAA regulations).
