Revoke Acceptance: Will this do it?

<p>Your college requires a 3.0 GPA. You apply after junior year of high school with a 3.1. You are accepted. Your senior year grades then take you to a 2.9.
Specifically for LSU, can someone point out their policy?</p>

<p>Is your Google broken? Freshman</a> Admission Requirements Effective Fall 2012 It looks like you can also get in with a high enough ACT/SAT.</p>

<p>LSU has a lot of information about admissions and admissions requirements. But I cannot find anything about revoking admission due to high school grades.</p>

<p>They talk about their “Early Admission Program,” but don’t define it. Google says colleges that have something they call an Early Admission Program are simply admitting students before final high school transcripts are done. I suspect it’s a phrase used for legal reasons only, because most every college I’ve encountered has regular admissions before final high school transcripts are done.</p>

<p>So let’s continue my quest for proof of LSU’s admission revocation policy.</p>

<p>LSU’s writings on admissions mostly seem to be geared toward those who have completed high school. For example, they write, “Students must also have completed at least 19 units of new Fall 2012 college-preparatory courses.” Yet they are admitting students who not only have not completed 19 units, but who also will not. Specifically, they are admitting students who will not take a fine arts course.</p>

<p>So LSU writes “must,” but also writes, “The Admissions Committee will review qualifications and application packages to determine whether additional predictors of success exist as a basis for admission.”</p>

<p>That’s enough parsing. Short of contacting LSU directly, does anyone have proof of LSU’s admission revocation policy?</p>

<p>Universities make this vague on purpose. The most you will find is some schools will post that a C or D must be explained in writing. This is so they have the leeway to review all students on a case by case basis. The best thing is to try to bring your grades up by the time you send a mid-year report. If at that point you are concerned about your grades the general thought is be proactive and contact them letting them know why your grades have slipped and what your plan is for success in the next semester. If you have a question about a specific schools tolerance for grades dropping speak with your GC who should be a good source based on past experience.</p>

<p>From the web site:</p>

There are three factors that will be initially considered for admission to LSU.</p>

<pre><code> Incoming freshman must have at least a 3.0 academic gpa calculated from academic core courses.
