A student who has applied for regular admission but has an academic record that does not meet ordinary admission standards, may be conditionally admitted to the University at the discretion of the Committee of Admission Standards. Acting under guidelines from the faculty, academic progress will be regularly reviewed. The student is required to participate in other remedial coursework and programs designed to help assure academic success. Students who are admitted conditionally are required to attend the STAR (Students Targeted for Academic Rewards) summer orientation program. The STAR orientation is an intense five-day residential preparation program which introduces students to the academic and social world of college through videos, faculty lectures, class work, small group discussions, panel discussions, and structured activities. STAR participants will get invaluable exposure to college life and will be introduced to the support system available to them.
