Admitted Student FAQs

Your Education

What if I'm getting a low grade in one of my current classes? Is my admission going to be rescinded if I drop the class?

We encourage you to seek assistance from your current teacher.  The Office of Admissions cannot definitively advise you on whether to drop or switch your current course.  The final decision should be made in consultation with your guidance counselor and in consideration of your goals and the requirements of the college to which you have been accepted, as well as your high school's graduation requirements.  You will need to decide what is the best course of action for your situation.

Your guidance counselor will need to submit your final high school transcript at the end of your senior year.  Your admission is contingent upon maintaining the same level of academic achievement as demonstrated in your application as well as graduation from secondary school.
