DOD Service Academies: Academic Review Processes. Report to Congressional Requesters.
General Accounting Office, Washington, DC. National Security and International Affairs Div.
This report examined the academic review processes at the three Department of Defense service academies, describing how the academies use these processes to review cases of students who have not met academic performance standards. Based on interviews with academy officials and relevant documents, it outlines the review processes in place at the Military Academy, Naval Academy, and Air Force Academy to evaluate cases of academically deficient students and prescribe dispositions for each case. Dispositions range from requiring an individual to repeat a failed course to disenrollment from the academy. Before a student is disenrolled, at least one academic review group evaluates the case. Students may present statements on their behalf during the review process. (MDM)
