The Academic Probation Program was developed from an initiative proposed by the College's Retention Committee in 2006. The primary goal of this program is to help students be successful in their academic work with retention being an additional benefit of these efforts.
The program assists students on academic probation by connecting them to resources and helping them to create a plan for academic success.
The Registrar's Office notifies students about their academic standing at the close of each semester. Students who earn a cumulative and/or term grade point average that is below a 2.0 are required to attend a meeting with Dean of Students Office personnel, typically the Assistant Director for Student Success. The focus of the meeting is to discuss the factors which have impacted the student's academic performance, including adjustment to college, time management, and stress management. This discussion also includes identifying effective learning strategies consistent with the student's learning style. A hold is placed on a student's enrollment for the following semester to ensure compliance with this requirement. Students may be referred to the appropriate campus resources, such as the Center for Academic Excellence, Emmons Student Wellness Center, Financial Aid, and Disability Services.
The professional staff in the Dean of Students Office follows up with the student during the semester regarding their academic progress.
