MITCommittee on Academic Performance

End of Term Academic Review

The most serious obligation of the Committee on Academic Performance is to review the records of all undergraduates at the end of each semester. In these reviews, which occur in January and June, the CAP in particular attends to the academic records of undergraduates who do not meet minimum standards.

This section explains the Committee's process, procedures, and possible decisions. These include Warning, Deferred Action, and Required Academic Leave. In some cases the Committee formally decides to take No Action.

This section also offers advice for students, advisors, and departments preparing for End of Term Review, well as for students after the CAP takes action.
