Academic Expectations

I understand that the Program Director of ISEP will review my academic performance and progress on a regular basis in order to provide me support.  I understand that I may be contacted based on the grades reported.

I will meet with the Program Director of ISEP if my grade point average (GPA) falls below 2.0 and follow a plan of action created to raise my grades or GPA.
