Students who fail to complete a cumulative GPA of 2.0 and a completion rate of 67% will immediately be placed on Warning. While being on Warning does NOT prevent you from registering or receiving aid, it does serve as a warning to begin taking steps necessary to turn your academic record around.
We are now offering a program designed to get you back on track called Bounce Back. You will get the opportunity to be matched with an advisor/mentor who will work with you to learn about your strengths and how to apply them towards your educational goals.
We strongly recommend you sign up for the Bounce Back Program. The program will require you to participate in four workshops.
- Streamlined Appeal Process
- Higher Rate of Success
- Improvement on Time Management and Study Skills
- Success Lunch Sessions
- Advisor/Mentor Match
- Chances to win prizes and scholarship
There is limited availability, please sign up HERE!
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your advisor at firstname.lastname@example.org or 651-423-8397.
