  • The midterm grade of a1.25 is already factored into the new GPA (listed as a 1.798). There are two things that can be focused on at this point: 1.) Getting the semester GPA above a 2.0, which will at least still allow the student one more chance 2.) Getting the cummulative GPA above a 2.0, which will lead to be getting off probation
  • Transcript

    • 1.
      • Strategies on how to really help them!
      Michael H. Henningsen, Resident Director Benedict Hall Alyshia M. Zurlick, Resident Director, Dobson Hall
    • 2.
      • Go over what is expected of you in terms of Midterm Grade Meetings
      • Provide new information to make the Midterm meetings more beneficial to you, as well as the student
      • Attempt to answer any questions you may have about the process
    • 3.
      • Our ability to affect the retention rates of the College at Brockport
        • Current retention rates:
          • Freshmen- 86%           
          • Upperclassmen-
          • Transfer-
      • Schedule appointments with students whose GPA is below a 1.50
        • Send appointment letters to students, but students do not have to show up
    • 4.
      • Discuss with them their grades and what is available on campus that they can go to for academic help
        • Student Learning Center
          • Tutoring, homework help etc…
        • Their APS Instructor (if Freshmen) or their advisor (upperclass)
      • Provide tips on studying, time management, note taking, etc
      • Wish them luck and off they go
    • 5.
      • I felt that I was missing out on a GREAT opportunity to really assist academically struggling students
        • You can give them information, but do they really read it? Are we REALLY helping?
      • After thinking things over, and speaking with colleagues in Academic Advisement, I developed a new plan of action for my meetings.
    • 6.
      • Meet with students whose midterm GPA below a 2.0
      • Discuss their current GPA
        • What implications could it have to have a low GPA?
        • What do they need to do to get it back to where THEY need/want it
      • Utilize the GPA Calculator and together develop a course of action to get grades up
      • Still go over tips and strategies with them, as well as discuss the Student Learning Center and what it offers
    • 7. PROBATION I STATUS CUMULATIVE GPA BELOW 2.0 ONE SEMESTER TO BRING CUMULATIVE GPA ABOVE 2.0 IF CUMULATIVE GPA ABOVE A 2.0 , OFF PROBATION! IF CUMULATIVE GPA NOT ABOVE 2.0, BUT SEMESTER GPA IS, PUT ON PROBATION II IF CUMULATIVE GPA AND SEMESTERLY GPA NOT ABOVE 2.0 , MAY BE DISMISSED ONE MORE SEMESTER TO GET CUMULATIVE GPA ABOVE A 2.0 OR MAY BE DISMISSED
    • 8.
      • Found on the First Year Experience Website:
      • www.brockport.edu/~firstyear
      • For First-Year/First semester transfer RDs For Fall:
      • You can utilize the calculator to help determine semester GPA, since they have no previous cumulative GPA
      • Upperclass RDs:
      • You will need to utilize the students DARS report
    • 9.
      • You will be able to get current cumulative GPA
      • Also look to see if any of the classes are repeats!
        • Most recent grade and credits replace old class, NOT THE BEST GRADE
        • Only credit for one class, do not get double credits for taking the class
      Current GPA # of Credits student is currently taking
    • 10.
      • Freshman/Transfer Resident:
        • At midterms, they have a 1.43 GPA
        • They are taking BIO I, HIS 112, ENG 112,GEP 150, and CRJ 101, for a total of 14 credits
            • BIO I is 4 credits, GEP 150 is 1 credit but is an S/U class, all others are 3 credits
        • If they continue doing poor with these classes, their cumulative GPA will be below a 2.0
        • They come to see you for help
    • 11.
      • Now that you have input the grades, you can now play with the grade to get the Cumulative GPA above a 2.0 to avoid Probation!
      • For first semester Freshmen, their Cumulative GPA and Semesterly GPA will be the same!
      • Transfer GPA not involved at all..Brockport GPA only!
    • 12.
      • By changing the letter grades, you can give a rough estimate as to what they need in their classes to avoid being put in Probation
      • This is only a close estimation..may not be actual GPA, but is close enough!
      Changed from a D- Changed from a D- Changed from a D- Changed from a D- Above a 2.0, should be okay Not quite high enough to avoid Probation I
    • 13.
      • Upperclass Student
        • Midterm grade is a 1.25 GPA
        • Overall GPA is a 1.85
        • Student is currently on Probation I for having a Cumulative GPA below a 2.0
        • They are taking a total of 16 credits
        • HST 386, BIO 221, PLS 113, ENL 165, HST 438
        • BIO 221 is 4 credits, everything else is 3 credits
          • PLS 113 is a repeatable class
    • 14.
      • They are already on Probation I---what does that mean?
      • They are repeating a class. This will really affect their GPA as it replaces their old grade, no matter of it is better or worse!
    • 15.
      • You will need to utilize three things off the DARS report to accurately assist the student
        • # of Credits you have completed
        • # of credits currently being taken
        • Current GPA
      • You will also need to scroll down and see of a class is being repeated (symbolized by a R+ next to the course)
      1.85 GPA # of Credits student is currently taking Current GPA 65.0 CR Completed
    • 16. If current grades do not change, their semester GPA will be below a 2.0, as well as the cumulative GPA as well! They could face possible dismissal!
    • 17.
      • In the example to the left, the semester GPA is above a 2.0, which would allow for the student to be on Probation II. Overall would be a 1.83
      • As you see, if the student achieved at minimum the grades to the Left, they would be off Probation entirely as their overall GPA is above a 2.00!
      Changed from a D Changed from a C- Changed from a E Changed from a D Changed from a C- Changed from a C- Changed from a C Changed from a E
