Scholastic Review Committee

Our Charge and Responsibilities

The Scholastic Review Committee (SRC) is responsible for administering, within the framework of faculty legislation, the undergraduate academic standards of the University as they pertain to the level of academic performance and progress toward a degree. The SRC reviews the records of undergraduate students doing unsatisfactory work, places such students on probation and sets individual goals for improvement, disqualifies students from attending the University for continued unsatisfactory scholarship, and reviews petitions for reinstatement. These responsibilities are carried out in two ways:

  1. End of Term Review - in which the committee reviews the academic records of undergraduate students who have been disqualified based on academic performance;
  2. Petition Review: in which the committee acts upon petitions submitted by students for reinstatement, cancellation of academic probation or disqualification, retroactive withdrawal, retroactive change in grading option, or contested grade. Graduate students and law school students are excluded from committee review for academic warning, academic probation, and academic disqualification. The SRC differs from the Academic Requirements Committee in that the SRC normally only looks at changes in the student record once the academic term in question is completed.

Note: Students who want more information about the petitions available and requirements should make an appointment with the Office of Academic Advising:
