What Grade Point Average do I need to make the Dean's List?

Undergraduate students must have a term GPA of 3.5 or above. Letters are sent to the address on file. 

Where can I do a Field Period® experience?

Because Field Period® is self-designed, the sky is the limit with where you choose to go. Accessible through the College's Portal, there are many resources to help students find Field Period® sites including a database of past experiences and through employer postings on our Career Management System, Handshake. Faculty, staff, and alumni also serve as valuable resources for finding sites, and many students rely on additional networks including friends, family, past supervisors, and community members as well.

Can I get an unofficial transcript if I’m no longer an active Keuka College student?

No. Unofficial transcripts are generated from the KC Portal for active students only. If you are no longer an active student, all transcripts can be ordered through the National Student Clearinghouse at www.getmytranscript.com.

What are the Field Period® assignments?

Prior to doing a Field Period® experience, students must submit a course proposal, which consists of a learning contract and a thank you letter, for faculty and site approval. The learning contract which identifies their site, supervisor, and what they expect to do and learn from that experience. During the experience, students will keep a reflective journal and an Early Progress Report will be sent to the student and site supervisor at the half-way point.  At the end of the experience, the student and site supervisor will be sent a Final Evaluation to complete and the student will be required to create a summary paper and put together a presentation that displays his/her learning through unique documentation.

Are there Field Period® deadlines?

Deadlines are established on the Keuka College Academic Calendar for when Field Period® course proposals and approvals are due for the upcoming Field Period® term. Typically, about a month before the end of the fall/spring semester, is when January/summer course proposals are due, and about one week prior to the end of the semester is when faculty and site approvals are due. After the experience, about four weeks into the following semester, faculty are required to submit grades, so students must submit their assignments and present on their experiences prior.

What is the difference between Add/Drop/Withdraw a course?
