Academic Recovery Program (ARP)

Within the ARP, RCMs again employ an outreach/connection/triage/linkage/follow-up sequence across a Start Strong/Stay Strong/Finish Strong framework with students on academic probation or suspension (cumulative GPA below 2.0) to raise their GPA and attain "Good Scholastic Standing" with the College.

Students on Academic Probation

Removal of the registration hold requires you complete two (2) sequential steps:

  1. Complete a SmarterMeasure assessment
  2. Visit virtually with a Retention Case Manager (RCM) to explore your learning assessment, individual circumstances, chart a course for improvement, and connect you with necessary resources as applicable.

Students on Academic Suspension

Removal of the registration hold requires completion of six (6) sequential steps:

  1. Complete a SmarterMeasure assessment

  3. Visit virtually with a Retention Case Manager (RCM) to explore your learning assessment, individual circumstances, chart a course for improvement, connect you with necessary resources as applicable, and initiate Academic Suspension Appeal form.
