Academic Policies

We encourage all ECAP students to become familiar with the Husson academic policies as these policies provide guidance and illustrate expectations for students.

If an ECAP student is not performing well in a course we encourage that student to reach out to their instructor for assistance, as well as the ECAP Coordinator, to develop a plan to catch up on outstanding work. The ECAP Coordinator will include the parent and high school counselor in communications with the student to ensure that all parties understand the current challenges the student is facing, as well as the next steps that may be considered, up to and including withdrawing from the course if necessary.
