150.010 – Academic Probation

Date Revised: September 2015

Academic probation serves as a formal warning that a Candidate must rectify specific deficiencies to remain in good standing.

A Candidate is placed on academic probation if they fail to register for credit two consecutive semesters without prior approval; fails to attend two consecutive retreats without prior approval; fails the Gateway Review or Penultimate review. Candidates who fail the Gateway Review may be dismissed from the program immediately (without formal warning), at the discretion of the MFA Committee. Deficiencies must be corrected by the start of the subsequent retreat, or a Candidate may be dismissed.  A Candidate dismissed from Maine Media College for academic reasons does not receive a refund.
