Progress Toward the Degree: Communication Requirement

The Communication Requirement is the only paced General Institute Requirement, that is, you are expected to pass one Communication Intensive (CI) subject each year. Working with departments and the Communication Requirement Office, the Committee on Academic Performance monitors progress toward this requirement.

At its End of Term Reviews, the CAP takes action on the records of students who are behind pace with the Communication Requirement. Actions include two levels of Warning and, in rare cases, Required Academic Leave.
