A Survey of Academic Suspension Policies and Practices. Report 78-01.
Miller, Robert S.; Trujillo, Gregory
Thirty-three private and public colleges and universities in the Pacific Northwest were surveyed in January 1977 for information about their policies and academic standards, suspension for academic reasons, and reinstatement after suspension. The responses of the 24 respondents, assigned numbers rather than institution titles, are presented here, along with the questionnaire. All but one of the respondents do have some academic standards policy for remaining in school and some system for implementing it. However, there is great variation in readmission practices and statistics. It is concluded that two factors are at work here: the person or persons making readmission decisions, and the students' perception of the process. In the readmission process the faculty is a very important element, and the process is dependent on the disposition of the individual faculty members. (MSE)
