Reminder–You're on Pre-Dismissal Academic Probation
We hope this message finds you well and keeping safe. This is a reminder that you've begun the academic probation pre-dismissal process because your cumulative Grade Point Average has remained below 2.0.
You are not alone: Many students participate in the pre-dismissal process each year, due to personal, financial, health or family issues that may affect their studies.
Here’s what this means: The required steps listed below are designed to help you get back on track with your educational goals, improve your GPA and avoid additional consequences – which could include dismissal if your GPA doesn’t improve this quarter. For this reason, a registration hold has been placed on your account, which will prevent you from registering for spring classes until you take the steps listed below.
We are here for you: The Retention Team can connect you with an academic counselor and additional support to help you raise your cumulative GPA to at least a 2.0, so you can regain good academic standing.
Required Steps: You must complete one of these courses and meet with a counselor during the current quarter.
- Schedule an appointment with a counselor to help you develop a plan for academic growth and success, if you haven’t already
done so this quarter.
- If you aren’t in a program that has its own counselors, make an appointment with a retention counselor.
- Complete the online Student Self-Assessment Survey to help our Retention Support Team identify ways to assist you.
Questions? If you have any questions or need help with the process, please feel free to contact the Retention Team by using the eAdvising system. (See the easy steps listed on the Retention Team website.)
We care about you and want to help you succeed. Here’s what one of our students told us last year:
“(My retention counselor) listened to my situation and gave me supportive, constructive suggestions (for) my challenges. (She) acted as if they were common experiences and struggles that many students have. It was very helpful to me, and I believe that I am on the right path going forward.”
