Assist Program

The Assist Program is offered to students in lieu of Academic Suspension. The course uses On Course principles that focus on essential study strategies, critical thinking, and self-management skills that promote academic, personal and professional growth. Students who wish to pursue this option must complete an application by June 16, 2014. You will be notified of your status no later than Monday, June 30, 2014. 

If accepted, you will be required to do the following:
1. Make appropriate changes to your Fall 2014 schedule by Friday, August 29, 2014. If you have questions about changing your schedule, please contact your academic advisor or Academic Advising at (440) 826-2188. You may also send an email to advising@bw.edu. 
2. Register for no more than 12 credits for Fall 2014.
3. Earn at least a 2.0 GPA for Fall 2014.
4. Meet the conditions of the Assist contract as described on the first day of class. 

A special note:  You are prohibited from participating in varsity athletics, holding offices in student organizations, pledging a national sorority or fraternity, or representing the University in any on or off-campus program or event. 

If you do not apply for the Assist Program, you will remain on Academic Suspension. This means that you will not be allowed to register for classes, your BW Jacket Express Card and email account will be deactivated. 

After one semester of Academic Suspension, students who wish to return to Baldwin Wallace University are allowed to apply for reinstatement. The Application for Reinstatement form, found on the Academic Affairs website, requires that you explain the source(s) of your academic difficulties. Most students placed on Academic Suspension find that personal issues, extra curricular activities, or lack of study strategies are at the heart of their problems. Students applying for reinstatement need to clearly explain what steps they have taken towards solving these issues for future academic success. For example, completing a full-time course load at a community college with a GPA of 2.8 or higher, professional counseling services, changes in personal life or other appropriate steps are expected.
