End of Term Academic Review: Responding to a Vote of No Action

The CAP occasionally takes no formal action on a review that was deferred for more information. In many cases your home department issues a Departmental Warning instead, which does not appear on either internal or external records.

Pay attention to a Departmental Warning. It is meant as both a wake-up call, reminding you that you have not met minimum standards, and an offer of help, pointing you toward people and offices that can help you improve your performance. A second consecutive record below minimum standards may well produce a formal CAP action.
