Why should you participate in the Summer Academic Success Program?

If you successfully pass two courses plus the study skills program, your academic standing will improve (Probation to Warning or Warning to Satisfactory). If you are a financial aid applicant, the classes you pass during the Summer Academic Success Program will be added to the number of courses completed during terms A12'-D13' when reviewing your eligibility for financial assistance for the 2013-2014 academic year.

You will receive a letter from the Registrar's Office at the end of D term informing you of your academic status if you are placed on Academic Warning or Probation.  If you receive financial aid, you will also receive a letter regarding your eligibility for continued aid.  

If you have not passed six courses this current academic year, you may still participate in the Summer Academic Success Program to make up courses and strengthen your learning and study skills. You may also use successful completion of the program to strengthen a financial aid petition, if applicable.  Successful completion of the program will not result in a change in your academic standing nor will it result in the financial aid consideration discussed above.

If you have been suspended, you may submit a petition to request to attend the program.  If applicable, successful completion of this program may strengthen your petition requesting to return for the fall semester on probation.  If you fall into this category, please contact the Advising Office to make an appointment with one of the Advising Staff prior to submitting your petition to attend.

To participate in the program, you will need to do the following:

1.     Register for two E Term courses.  Please contact your faculty advisor to discuss appropriate course selection.  Summer course registration is now open (title="Class Schedules">Registrar's Office). This summer, WPI is offering a 50% tuition discount for students who have received an NR in a “core” course and repeat these courses at WPI this summer. Core courses eligible for the tuition discount  for Summer 2013 are: 

2.       Register for the Reading and Study Skills Seminar (ID 1000).  The cost for this no-credit course is $450.
