The Office of Academic Success partners with students and other support areas on campus to develop strategies for students to have a successful semester. This is done through workshops, one-on-one consultations with students, and referrals to other campus resources.

In order to graduate from Curry College students must achieve the following:
Each program at the College has a degree map to help you see what courses you should take in order to complete your degree in 4-years without taking summer or winter classes. Students can find all degree maps on the myCurry portal. Generally it is recommended that students take 15 credits per semester to achieve the 120 credits needed for graduation.
In addition to the degree map, students have access to their degree audit (CAPP) which shows what courses are needed to graduate and which have already been completed. Using the degree audit along with the degree map is a great way to track your progress towards graduation.
All full or part-time undergraduate and continuing education degree-seeking students must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) in order to receive financial aid. All students will be reviewed at the close of the spring semester for adherence to the SAP standards.
SAP includes three standards of measurement:
1. Cumulative Grade Point Average
In order to retain financial aid eligibility undergrad and CE students must maintain a minimum GPA based on attempted number of credits:
|Attempted Credits||Min. Cum GPA|
|0 to 18.99||1.5|
|19 to 59.99||1.8|
|60 or more||2.0|
2. Credits Earned
All students must complete at least 67% of the credits which they attempt.
3. Maximum Time Frame
Students enrolled full-time and earning a four year degree are allowed up to six years or 180 attempted credits of financial aid eligibility to earn the 120 credits required for degree completion.
Students who do not meet one or more of the above three standards will become ineligible to receive financial aid and must appeal to try and regain eligibility.
You may review the entire SAP policy at www.curry.edu/SAP.
Students achieve an academic standing each semester they take courses at the College. There are 5 possible Academic Standings:
...Appeal a grade
Students have a right to dispute a final grade in a course through the grade appeal process. Students who wish to dispute their grade should contact the Office of Academic Success within 30 calendar days of the beginning of the semester following the one in which the student was awarded the disputed grade. As part of this process the student will be required to meet with the faculty member to discuss the subject of the appeal. If a resolution is not agreed upon, the grade appeal then goes to the department for consideration, and if needed to the Undergraduate Academic Policy Committee (UAPC). Full details on the grade appeal process can be found in the Curry College course catalog.
...Submit an Academic Petition
Students wishing to appeal an academic policy can petition the Academic Petition Committee. Petitions are available in the Registrar’s Office and the Academic Success Coordinators are available to assist students with completing the petition and determining when a petition is appropriate.
...Appeal an Academic Dismissal
Students who are on Academic Probation for two consecutive semesters are reviewed for dismissal from the College. Once a student has been notified that they have been dismissed from the College, they have a right to appeal that decision. Students should inform their Academic Success Coordinator that they are appealing the decision and should submit the appeal form on the myCurry portal with supporting documentation.
...Apply for readmission to the College after an Academic Dismissal or Withdrawal
Students who were Academically Dismissed or withdrew from the College can apply for readmission at a later date. The readmit form can be found on the Registrar’s page and students can work with an Academic Success Coordinator on their readmit application. Students applying for readmission should be able to speak to and document what actions they have taken since they left the institution.
...Return to the College after a Leave of Absence
Students wishing to return the College after a leave of absence should contact the Registrar’s Office.
