    Additional Information

    Students will be notified during the Spring semester (January - May) if they are conditionally admitted into the program. Students are not officially in the program until they attend the first week of classes (starting August 11th) and attend the program orientation held at the beginning of the semester (this includes students who are enrolled in SYMBAA courses). Students who do not attend the first day of classes, who do not attend orientation and/or demonstrate poor classroom behavior, are at risk of being dropped from the program, including the courses. The SYMBAA program provides a learning community for the Fall and Spring semesters, which equals one academic year. After the first academic year, students have continued access to program services.
