When Do Colleges Rescind Acceptances?

    @Sally_Rubenstone I have a question! I am scheduled to be attending California State University, Fresno this Fall; but I just received an email from the admissions office informing me that I have not met the English requirements. It states I have less than 8 semesters of High School English. My final transcript is going under review with the admissions commitee, and they decide either to revoke or sustain my admission.

    I know I have completed 8 semesters, as that was a graduation requirement and I have graduated. I did not do well my first semester of freshman English, but I did attend summer classes to make up for the credits not made beforehand. I had even spoken to guidance counselors and was told the summer classes should not be an issue--and make up for the entire semester.

    I have replied to the University, and have not recieved a reply.
    I am getting very worried that my admission may be revoked, even after I have paid for/ attended orientation, as well as paid for/ currently attending a class at the university.

    Is it likely the University will revoke my admission?

    @shellbee5 -From what you've said here, it sounds like you've fulfilled your English requirement, and it's possible that officials at CSU misread your transcript and didn't realize that you'd made up your first semester of freshman English in summer school.

    However, since this apparent mistake has been made, it's up to YOU to stay on top of the situation until it's straightened out. Call AND email the admission office on Monday to check on your status. Also contact your high school guidance counselor if s/he is at work next week and ask your counselor to contact CSU to make sure that the confusion has been cleared up. If your guidance counselor is away but the school guidance office is open, ask if another counselor can make the call on your behalf.

    My best guess is that your acceptance will NOT be revoked but keep in contact with CSU until this has been confirmed.

    hi so my story is much different
    I am a student who follows the British curriculum
    I did 7 O levels, Bio A*, Maths A*, Human Bio A*, Physics A*, Chem A, Arabic A, English A
    and for AS levels I got a predicted A for Arabic, A for Bio, A for Chem and A for Maths

    However, when my grades came out I was surprised to find out that I got 2C's and 2 A's.The C's were for Bio and Chem.

    I got an 8 in IELTS and scored 680 in SATs the math section.

    I was offered a conditional offer in Qatar University medical school.What are the chances of my offer getting rescinded and what to do in order to minimise these chances as much as possible my father is considering hiding my grades is this the right thing to do?

    @meero998 -Sorry, but I know nothing about medical admission policies at Qatar University. You should contact the university directly to ask. If you don't want to identify yourself during this fact-finding mission, have a friend (etc.) call there to ask about a theoretical student in your situation to see what the reply is. I'm guessing you'll be fine but, as noted above, it's no more than a guess.
