Students who do not to meet Relay’s academic expectations can be dismissed from their program. Students may be dismissed from Relay for the following reasons:
- Failure to meet SAP for two consecutive terms;
- Failure to maintain minimum GPA; and/or
- Failure to meet program-specific academic requirements.
If you are in danger of program dismissal, Relay may contact the your school and/or sponsoring organizations and/or teacher prep program affiliation to notify them and enlist their help in supporting you.
In the event of a program dismissal, the registrar will notify you via email. SFS will follow up with you about how to pay any outstanding Relay tuition and fees. If dismissed, you have the right to appeal the decision by contacting the campus dean. The campus dean will review all appeals with the senior dean, student affairs and may include a panel of at least two campus deans when necessary. The senior dean, student affairs and/or panel will make a decision regarding reinstatement, and the decision of the senior dean, student affairs and/or panel is final. If the appeal is unsuccessful, program dismissal procedures will continue, and you will dismissed.
If you are dismissed, it is your responsibility to notify your schools (and if applicable, their teacher prep programs, such as Teach For America or New York City Teaching Fellows) of your departure from Relay.
