Academic Censure

Academic censure is the process by which the university addresses student performance issues. There are several categories of student performance problems that lead to some form of censure. These problems may be identified at any point during the academic year, though a systematic review of all students’ course grades is also conducted at the end of each academic term. The review of other, non-course grade problems is typically conducted on an individual basis as issues arise. A finding of significant problems in any of these areas can result in a warning, probation, suspension, dismissal or expulsion, depending on the nature and severity of the problems identified. All of these statuses are maintained permanently on the academic record; only dismissal and expulsion, however, appear permanently on Marquette University’s official transcript. If students are reinstated following a dismissal, that notation also permanently appears on the official transcript.
