Many students experience some form of academic difficulty during their college career. For some students, they may simply struggle through a class or two or through a single term. For others, academic difficulty may be more severe and/or long lasting.

Policies on General Education Math Learning Disabilities can be found here.

Students facing academic difficulty are influenced by various factors and knowledge of these factors is invaluable to the success of the student. It is important for students to gain as much information as possible about their individual academic situation and based on this information develop a plan to return to good academic standing. Students may complete these steps by doing the following:

  • meet with an academic advisor
  • assess the severity of their grade point average deficit,
  • know what courses should be taken (or repeated),
  • be aware of the grades needed to clear probationary status, and
  • develop a study schedule and routine that will provide both the structure and support needed to concentrate on improving their academic performance.

The College of Arts & Sciences Center for Advising and Student Services offers a program that may assist you in improving your academic status. Program participants are assigned an advisor or counselor with whom educational goals are established as well as a plan for utilizing the necessary campus resources.
