Students may be admitted to Paul Smith’s College as a transitional student with special requirements after the review of educational records by the Office of Admissions and in consultation with the Vice President for Enrollment Management or designee. Such students are advised of transitional enrollment status through an admissions acceptance letter. As with all students, transitional students are required to meet the standards of academic progress each semester.
Additionally, transitional students are required to meet regularly with an Academic Success Counselor to develop an individual success plan and will be expected to participate in academic tutoring, advising, mentoring, and workshops as identified necessary for optimum educational success. Transitional students are limited to 15 credits their first semester and must participate in the program until they successfully complete 45 credits.
