Within one week of grade release, letters will be sent to those students in the top 50% of their respective class years with precise numerical ranking. Students who fall below the top 50% have no official ranking. The Career Strategies Office can help you communicate this to employers.
Best Student Awards
The Kline School of Law participates in the CALI Excellence for the Future Awards, recognizing top JD students in letter-graded courses. Students will be notified by email within one week of all grades being released if they have received the award. Note that awards are optional and professors may choose not to recognize anyone.
Students who earn at least a 3.30 term GPA in a term in which they have taken at least 5 letter-graded credits and have no outstanding grades will receive Dean’s List standing for the term. Dean’s List shows on the transcript for the term within one day of grade release, and separate recognition from the Dean will follow.
Students will be formally notified of probation or dismissal within one week of grades being released. Students who are dismissed will have the opportunity to appeal for reinstatement within 10 days of receipt of this notice.
Students who have submitted a form to have their unofficial transcript uploaded to their Symplicity account will see it in their Documents within one week of grade release, unless there is a hold on their account. Typically, students have completed this form during Orientation, but you can also find the form in the Office of Student Affairs or the Career Strategies Office.
Official transcripts can be ordered from DrexelOne on the Academics tab. If you are graduating, you should wait at least two weeks after grade release to order your official transcript if you need it to show your degree has been conferred.
Unless the instructor has directed students otherwise, students should contact their instructors directly to review their exams.
In general, scholarships are reviewed for loss or renewal at the end of each Spring semester. Students who are academically dismissed or who begin their studies in the Spring may be reviewed at different times. Need-based scholarships expire based on the stated conditions, and are only affected by academic dismissal.
