You’ve been accepted to the college you want to attend. “Phew,” you think, “The pressure is off!” Not so fast. Don’t take that acceptance for granted. Colleges can rescind your admissions decision if there is good reason.
Why Colleges May Rescind Your Acceptance
With an acceptance in hand, seniors can become more complacent about continuing to work hard in their classes, and grades may slip. This can impact your acceptance. Some colleges may request that your guidance office submit your first quarter and/or mid-year grades, and will ask for your final transcript as well. If they see significant drops, such as a D or even F, without a good reason, your admission is at risk. You could get a warning, or just a flat out notification of rescission. So don’t let your grades slide. Continue to put in the work so that all your previous hard work is not lost.
