Academic Recovery is a period in which a student is engaged in a battery of programs and services to improve his/her academic performance.  Students in academic recovery are identified by the university through one of three ways: (1) admissions probation; (2) financial aid probation/suspension; or (3) academic suspension reinstatement.  Any student with less than a 2.000 cumulative grade point average for two or more semesters is a candidate for academic recovery. 

Students participating in academic recovery are typically expected to:

  • Meet with a Success Coach several times throughout the semester to discuss progress and challenges
  • Participate in the SRS Study Hall Program
  • Attend academic skill development workshops on areas such as study skills, test taking, and learning styles
  • Attend non-academic skill development workshops on areas such as time management, procrastination, and effective communication in college
  • Develop an academic success plan that will guide goal setting and track goal attainment
  • Strengthen overall preparedness and motivation to do well in the university setting

The academic recovery process is guided by professional staff members in Student Retention Services (commonly referred to as Success Coaches).  Students are assigned to work one-on-one with a Success Coach through the academic recovery process.  The main goal of academic recovery is to support the student’s return to “good standing” with the university (minimum cumulative GPA of 2.000 or higher).  Once a student returns to “good standing,” s/he is typically not required to continue in the academic recovery program but may continue on a voluntary basis if they desire additional assistance in achieving other academic goals.
