Senior Class Schedule Changes
What happens if my schedule changes during the middle of the application process or after I have been admitted?
When the Kenyon College Office of Admissions offers admission to a student during early decision or regular decision, we do so with the understanding that the student will complete the course schedule for which he or she is registered.
Generally, we do not approve any changes in schedule. We look for students to challenge themselves in school, and dropping a course could be viewed as taking the less difficult road, especially if students drop a challenging class after they have been admitted to Kenyon. If we encounter a high school record that changes substantially once an application is admitted, we may question that student's seriousness and ability to meet the rigor of Kenyon work.Our decisions were based on the academic rigor and breadth that you presented to us on your transcript in your application. We believe that students need to have a strong foundation across the five major disciplines (English, math, science, social science, and language) during high school before we grant them the freedom of our flexible curriculum.
