The function of the Committee on Academic Standing and Honors is to uphold high academic standards among undergraduates in Arts & Sciences. The committee reviews and recommends academic standards (i.e., academic honors and academic probation) and regularly reviews the academic standing of Arts and Sciences undergraduates twice per year. The committee meets at least 3 times per year (in mid-January, late April or early May, and early June), and conducts some business via email over the summer and in January, April, and May. While the summa honors process is quite visible to the faculty as a whole, the committee's work on academic standing is less visible because of its confidential nature but is no less important because it may determine whether a student is eligible to remain enrolled at Tufts.
