Communicating Starlab Progress

During the quarter there will be 2 progress reports sent home to allow both parents and students to monitor progress.  Each report will indicate how many credits are assigned, what percent has been completed so far, and what grade the student is currently earning.  All Work Study hours, online and hard copies of pay stubs, are due by 6:00 PM on the 8th Academic Leave week of the quarter, and all online classwork must be completed by 6:00 PM on the final Academic Leave session of the quarter, with the exception of students graduating at the end of that quarter, whose online work is due Week 8. The final grade and number of credits earned will be calculated by 7:30 p.m. on the last night of the quarter. 

Additional Support

We realize that there are often multiple issues underlying the problems that led to a student being placed on academic leave. Students are encouraged, but not required, to seek additional support from a member of our mental health team at any time during the quarter.
