Helping Students on Academic Probation to Persist and Succeed. Research has repeatedly shown that students who end up on probation are less likely to be retained and graduate as compared to students who remain in good academic standing. Colleges and universities must offer more effective support services and interventions to help these students succeed and persist towards graduation. Probation does not have to be the end of an academic career. This presentation will discuss the evolution of support services that have been offered to students at the Rutgers – Newark College of Arts and Sciences/University College, with a particular focus on current interventions which include a 1-credit online course that will be required for all probation students to enroll. We will discuss the theory, implementation, and components of the course.
