Advising Students on Academic Probation
During winter quarter, you may be meeting with students who have been placed or continue to be on probation. Students with below a 2.00 accumulative grade point average (agpa) are placed on academic probation. Students already on academic probation may be allowed to continue if, in the opinion of their dean, they are making adequate progress toward attaining a 2.00 agpa. Adequate progress is defined as earning a term gpa greater than a 2.00. For the complete academic probation policy, see pages 32-34 in the Undergraduate Catalog.
All first-year students and first quarter transfer students who were placed on academic probation after fall quarter were required to attend an Academic Success Workshop. At these workshops, students were given assistance in:
• Understanding probation policies
• Calculating grade-point average
• Determining reasons for academic difficulties
• Finding solutions to these problems and setting goals for winter quarter
• Identifying campus resources
