Many students experience some form of academic difficulty during their college career. For some students, they may simply struggle through a class or two or through a single term. For others, academic difficulty may be more severe and/or long lasting. Whatever the situation, there are many ways you can make connections with staff, faculty and fellow students that may help you overcome the difficulties you have been experiencing.
As a student on academic probation, the two most important steps you can take, are to gain as much information as possible about your individual academic situation and based on this information develop a plan to return to good academic standing in the following semester. This is the time to do the following:
- assess the severity of your grade point average deficit
- know what courses you should be taking (or retaking)
- be aware of the grades needed to clear probationary status
- meet with a Success Counselor/Coach on a regular basis
