  2. 2. Is It True?
  3. 3. What is Academic Probation?  Academic probation is a warning that the student’s performance falls below the institution’s requirement for “good academic standing”.*  Academic standing is most often measured by GPA (grade point average), but may also be determined by academic progress, or the number of credits completed. Many schools expect students to maintain a 2.0 (C) average, although the acceptable GPA may be slightly lower for first-year students.  Each school’s policy may be slightly different, and is usually explained in the college catalog. *American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers, 2004.
  4. 4. Why Are We Here?  The National Student Clearinghouse – which tracks more than just first-time, full-time students – found the six-year graduation rate for students who started in the fall of 2006 was 60.5 percent at public four-year colleges, and 62.5 percent at private nonprofit colleges. Meanwhile, the Department of Education reports that 59 percent of students who started at any four-year institution in the fall of 2006 graduated by 2012.  Just 5 percent of students complete their associate degrees in two years, the report found. At non-flagship public universities, just 19 percent of students finish in four years, and just 36 percent do so at flagship or research universities.  *US News, 12/1/2014
  5. 5. Why We Are Here?  Every year more than 380,000 students fail out of college in the United States.  The Educational Resources Information Center reports that there are significant drawbacks to academic probation.  A great number of students who are placed on academic probation struggle to return to college institutions, let alone graduate, due to feelings of discouragement.  The specific challenges, aside from feeling of decreased worth, faced by students are many, including but limited to economic challenges, social stigma, and the overall lack of understanding about what to do next.
