Advising for Exploratory Students on Probation
This information is designed to assist you with goal setting and to make sure you understand what you need to accomplish to get off of academic probation. If you are a current Exploratory Studies student who is on academic probation then please pay close attention. (If you are not currently in Exploratory Studies nor on probation, please feel free to utilize this information to assist you with your academic challenges as well.)
As an Exploratory student, your academic progress is monitored each semester you are enrolled. If you are placed on academic probation, you will receive a letter in the mail from your advisor asking you to go online to complete five important exercises. These exercises will help you calculate the grades you will need to get off probation and to help you understand why you may be experiencing problems. We ask that you meet initially with your academic advisor during the first two weeks of the upcoming semester!
When you meet with your advisor, please be prepared to discuss academic strategies and discuss any problems or concerns you may have regarding:
- Identifying common causes of low grades
- Prediction of semester grades
- What do you need this semester to get off of probation (GPA Calculator)
- Time management plan
- Probation facts
The Exploratory Studies Advising Office is open from 8-11:45 a.m. and 1-4:45 p.m. Monday through Friday. Please call our secretary at 494-0843 to schedule an appointment with your academic advisor.
