End of Term Academic Review

The Academic Review Committee meets at the end of the term to determine the final academic status of students who meet drop eligibility rules. The academic status of such students is determined after a thorough review of academic history, advising records, documented utilization of available resources offered by the college, and supporting documentation. Students are then notified via email immediately following the review.


  • Final Grades Post (mid May/late December)
  • Academic Review Committee Meeting (2-3 business days after grade posting) 
  • Notification of Academic Status (1-2 days after academic review)

The above timeline is very short. Students who feel that they may be dropped may wish to provide information to the academic review committee prior to the review.  They may do so via the Student Narrative Form. Please note, this process does not guarantee any specific outcomes, it only provides the committee additional information to review.

If you had medical related circumstances you might consider reaching out to The Office of the Dean of Students (ODOS) to learn about the retroactive medical withdrawal process to see if this is an option.

The end of the semester and uncertainty of grades can bring stress and anxiety for students.  If you are in crisis, please call the Crisis Line at (217) 359-4141 for immediate support, 911 to seek emergency services, or call Dial-A-Nurse (217) 333-2700.
