Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO examined the academic review processes at three Department of Defense service academies, focusing on how these processes are used to review cases of students who have not met academic performance standards.

GAO found that: (1) the service academies have established similar review processes to evaluate academically deficient students; (2) dispositions range from requiring students to repeat a failed course to disenrollment from the academy; (3) students are considered academically deficient if their academic point scores fall below the required minimum or they fail more courses than allowed; (4) students are not academically disenrolled until at least one academic review group evaluates their case; and (5) although they cannot be present for the review, students can present written statements on their behalf during the review process.
