» Academic Probation Resources

Many students experience some form of academic difficulty during their college career.  For some students, they may simply struggle through a class or two in a single semester. 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 who 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:

  1. Gain as much information as possible about your individual academic situation
  2. Develop a plan to return to good academic standing in the following semester

The advisors in the Academic Advising Center are ready to assist you with this effort. The first thing you should do is make an appointment with your advisor prior to the end of the second week of the term. 

Your advisor will make recommendations based on your individual situation, which may include utilizing any or all of the following resources:
