Placed on probation due to struggles last semester? You CAN recover.
While being placed on probation is a serious issue, remember that there are support systems in place to help you recover from this setback and achieve satisfactory academic standing. To aid in the process of regaining academic footing, the college has established the Carthage Academic Achievement Program (CAAP), a mandatory program for all students in a probationary status, and is here to assist you in improving your academic standing for future success.
For students who are enrolled in CAAP following the fall 2020 term, you will receive a letter from the Office of the Provost outlining the following required steps:
- Meet with your assigned student success advisor to create and sign an action plan to achieve academic success during the upcoming term(s), which may include regular meeting times with your advisor for the remainder of the term
- Attend four or more sessions from the Wednesday Workshop Series to increase your awareness of resources and build the skills and confidence that you will need to reach the goals outlined on your action plan
- Complete a final meeting with your student success advisor prior to the final exam period to review your strategy for meeting any remaining requirements in your courses
If you are also concerned about maintaining eligibility for state and federal financial aid or institutional scholarships, visit the Financial Aid webpage on eligibility requirements.
IMPORTANT: Students who fail to participate in the program or raise their cumulative grade point average above a 2.0 may face an extended probationary status or may not be able to register for subsequent terms.
