Frequently Asked Questions

However, you are encouraged to make an appointment with a Student Affairs staff member or utilize the various resources on campus to help you get back to satisfactory academic standing. You may also receive a call from a staff member to discuss strategies moving forward. Should you wish to make an appointment to discuss academic success strategies or your current academic standing, please email ssi@belleveucollege.edu.
