The following should guide students in achieving their educational goals.

Kilachand Students Must Meet the Following:

Kilachand Standing
  • The Kilachand Honors College administration will review the performance and the participation of all Kilachand students to determine their standing at the close of each fall and spring semester.
  • Students who do not meet one or any combination of these requirements in a semester will be placed on review in Kilachand. Students on review remain in good standing in Kilachand. Students in good standing are eligible to participate in Kilachand student groups and specialty residential communities, including as a Resident Assistant (RA).
  • Students who do not meet one or any combination of these requirements for a second consecutive semester will be placed on warning. Students on warning are in poor standing in the College.

Dissemination of Information

Students who do not meet one or any combination of these requirements will be notified of their Kilachand standing via email to their registered Boston University email address at the end of the fall or spring semester. A student’s Kilachand standing will not be made public when records or transcripts are shared. This information may be shared as necessary with other schools and colleges within Boston University.
