Navigating Academic Probation

Learning you've been placed on academic probation can stir up a lot of emotions. You might be asking yourself, "Am I a good student?" and "What does this mean for me?"

Take a deep breath - academic probation happens from time to time, and it doesn't mean you aren't a capable student. However, it does mean that it's time to reevaluate your situation, and take action.


If you've been placed on academic probation following the Spring 2022 semester, you were notified via email in June 2022, and have or will receive reminder follow-up emails. It is very important that you read the email thoroughly and pay close attention to instructions and deadlines. You may also check out the Probation and Suspension section of our website for more information.


Steps to take while on academic probation:


Pre-Major Students (students not yet admitted to a major):

You will need to schedule a one-on-one appointment with your CSE College Academic Advisor. You must contact the CSE Advising Office or your College Advisor by Friday, October 7, 2022 to schedule the appointment with your CSE College Advisor. You can schedule your appointment with your college advisor in one of three ways:


You must complete the Academic Probation Self-Assessment Worksheet. During the appointment, you and your advisor will use the completed worksheet for discussion. It is important to have the worksheet completed and have a printed or electronic copy with you when arriving for the appointment. If the worksheet is not complete at the time of check-in, you will not be able to have the probation appointment and your probation hold will not be moved, as you will not have met a term of your probation. This means you may not be able to register at your queue time. 


Upper Division Students (students admitted to their major):

First, you will need to schedule a one-on-one appointment with your departmental advisor/Director of Undergraduate Studies (DUGS). You then need to schedule an appointment with your CSE College Advisor for after you have completed your meeting with your departmental advisor/DUGS. You do not need to wait until you have completed your appointment with your departmental advisor/DUGS to schedule the appointment with your College Advisor. Once you have the appointment with your departmental advisor/DUGS on the calendar, you can schedule your appointment with your College Advisor. You must contact the CSE Advising Office by Friday, October 7, 2022 to schedule your appointment with your College Advisor. Please contact your departmental advisor/DUGS to schedule with them. You can schedule your appointment with your college advisor in one of three ways:


Complete the Academic Probation Contract and Self-Assessment Worksheet. During your appointments, you and your advisors will use the completed worksheet for discussion. It is important to have the worksheet completed and have a printed or electronic copy available when you arrive for the appointments. If the worksheet is not complete at the time of check-in, your probation hold will not be moved, as you will not have met a term of your probation. This means you may not be able to register at your queue time.


Advisors have already begun meeting with probation students; be sure to schedule your appointment as soon as possible so you can meet the deadlines associated with the probation requirements.


The University has many resources available to aid in your success this semester. We encourage you to explore these options as you start your fall 2022 semester (please note this is not an exhaustive list; please contact your college advisor if you have questions about other resource options):


Academic probation can definitely rattle your confidence, but it's also an opportunity for you to make changes that can have a positive lasting impact. Try to look at it as a learning and personal growth experience. Have a great, successful semester!
